5 years

five years ago today,
just us two...
we stood barefoot on the beach 
and exchanged the vows we wrote for one another.


neither of us had any idea what the next 1,825 days would bring,
but we knew
 whatever it was...we would face it together.

side by side.
hand in hand.

we've experienced...
laughter 
tears
joy
sorrow
playfulness 
disappointment

but we faced it all
together. 
always together. 


i don't know where i'd be without you. 
likely, a ship lost at sea.
you are my rock.
my anchor.
my best friend.
my light at the end of a dark tunnel.

thank you, A...
for walking this journey through life with me. 
i'm looking forward to seeing what the next five years brings.
