Today is our 21st Wedding Anniversary!

The A happened right after our 14th, so we've made it 7-years past that. Looking at those 14-years, gerrygirl and I both have good memories of that period, but we also don't want to let ourselves go back to the type of M we had before. I mean, we got M for a reason right? We loved each other. What we didn't know is that it takes work. We learned that post-A, I think I especially learned that lesson...and now, here we are.

Gerrygirl, I love you, and I'm happy to be able to wake up next to you each morning.

WH - 44
BW - gerrygirl
