We'll be married 10 years in April. I really don't want to count one of those years... but it has brought us to where we are, and we were married the whole time... so I guess I am. I don't want to not count it at the same time. You understand, I'm sure. Anyway. 10 years in April.
We're surviving. Most days are good. We have a lot of happy times and he's done SOOO much to make things better. The few rough days are really rough, but getting back on track is easier and is team work. We're making it. I'm glad.
So fWH has said that whatever I want out of our anniversary is what we will do. He wants to live up to my expectations and make it all I'm dreaming of... or ignore it if that is what I want. Our budget is pretty small right now, too... since he did quit his job for me and all.
I like his attitude. He understands. Last year's anniversary was right before DDay and once I found out, all of the sweet things he said at our anniversary dinner had such a different meaning. I hated every minute of it in hindsight.
So, I think we are going to renew our vows this year. We've talked about it since DDay, and we had talked about doing it every 10 years since we got married anyway. Something really small, just us, nice and simple.
I would like to get something engraved in our rings. I don't hate my rings, and I have never broken my vows to him, so the meaning of his ring hasn't changed. I know some people have problems with their rings after an A, but I haven't found that I have so much.
What I'm looking for are some ideas for one word to have engraved inside each of our wedding bands. With some meaning of what we have been through. Any ideas?
