Today marks our ten year wedding anniversary. On a picture perfect November 3, we stood in front of cherished friends and family overlooking the Okatie River in Bluffton, S.C., and promised to love each other forever. Then we danced under the stars before embarking on our happily ever after.
I’ve been reflecting on the ceremony led by my dear friend, Chaplain Mel Baars O’Malley, who spoke of our relationship in terms of life’s journey. During the past decade, we’ve experienced so much life, growing into ourselves, becoming parents and a family with our beautiful daughter, and learning together how to manage the joys and difficulties along our journey.
It’s only fitting that we celebrate ten years traveling together and creating new memories of shared experience to add to our story.
“What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel
That they are joined together
To strengthen each other in all labours,
To minister to each other in all sorrow,
To share with each other in all gladness,
To be one with each other in the silent, unspoken memories?” – George Elliot
