Today is the 4 year anniversary of the day Mark and I got sealed for time and all eternity in the Sacramento, California temple.
It’s funny. When you first get married, you think you’re going to be on top of the world. That it doesn’t get any better than that. But for us it wasn’t like that.
The first year of our married was actually pretty difficult. While it was still wonderful, it was an adjustment. Parts of ourselves we didn’t even know existed came out, particularly for me. I’ve always struggled with anxiety, but those issues went into a tailspin during that first year. It was difficult on both of us.
But I married a very special man. One who doesn’t run away at the first sign of trouble. One who doesn’t like to fight. One who encourages me and pushes me to be the best version of myself possible. One who is patient and understanding. One who forgives.
I’ve realized over the years how wonderful marriage is. It’s not easy, but it is worth every ounce of effort you put into it. And now, at four years, we are the happiest we’ve ever been.
Plus, look what we made.
I love you Mark. Thank you for loving me. And here’s to a gazillion more years together.
