Troy knew he wanted to get married on the 4th of July. It was one of the first things he said after he proposed. That way he would always have it off from work. My husband is romantic. Not in the flower ordering, jewelry purchasing sort of way. He is romantic in that he values time spent together. He always makes time for me. It's the most precious gift anyone can give.
Today marks the 9th year that we have been married. 9 years ago, on the patio outside of the Millineum Hotel in Boulder, CO we said our vows.
"With this ring I promise to love you wholly and completely, without restraint, in life and beyond, where we shall meet, remember, and love again"
We wrote them together and recite them to each other every few months. We really believe them, and we hope that they will come true.
I asked him last night, "Will we make it another 9?" I don't have to tell you his response.
