Seven

There was a time when B thought he'd never be in a relationship ever again. There was a time I thought I could never be in a good one. Then our paths crossed and fate proved us both wrong.

Today is our seventh wedding anniversary. Maybe it's a sign of success but there are times when it feels as though we got married only yesterday and other times it feels as if we've always been married. Perhaps when you've done it right time blurs and the bond seems ancient while the memories stay fresh.

We did our celebrating yesterday. Friends joined us at our favorite restaurant to celebrate and reminisce over our wedding day. Memories were discussed and we all agreed that it was as close to a perfect day as we could have hoped for - right down to there being one liter of beer left in the keg as the last guest left.

So if you'll indulge me for a moment I'd just like to take this opportunity to tell the world that I have the most wonderful husband that I could ever want and I have a marriage that's happier than I ever thought possible. Every happily married couple says their husband or wife is the best in the world and I'm no different. I have the best husband in the world for me and I'm grateful to him for his love, devotion, patience, kindness, humor and the bond we have between us that grows ever stronger with every passing year. I am blessed.

Thank you for everything you are to me, sweetheart. I love you without end.

It's amazing to think that sometimes one has to go through a lot of years where you feel that love is lost to you. You struggle and get frustrated. Suddenly all of that negative stuff becomes totally worth it when you find that person that makes you as happy as you are now.

happy anniversary Kim and B
