Fifteen Years

Fifteen years ago today I married my best friend. The one I laugh with, live for, Love.
That's what was written on our wedding announcements. We were married in a small church in the middle of a snow covered field with just our immediate family. We had a big party later, but I'll never forget how special our wedding day was.


















When I woke up this morning and was getting ready to leave for work, I found this on the coffee table:


















There was a hand written note that said "I will always love you. Forever and ever. We can always begin again."
Inside was this:




















The very first piece of jewelery he purchased for me when we were dating nineteen years ago was an Opal ring.

We've had a rough time of it lately.

Today I want to focus on the love we have for each other and the feelings we had on that special day.

Fifteen years. I think that's pretty impressive in this day and age. And I think my husband is right. It's never too late to begin again.

Happy Valentine's Day.
