Today, thirteen years ago, J and I were married. To say that it has been a wild ride is an understatement. What did we know then? Not much. What do we know now? Just a little bit more. And we’ve unleashed two splendid humans on the world in that span of time. (One of them, at not yet eleven years old, is as tall as some adults.)
J, I would be nowhere without you. Our family would be nowhere without you. If it takes another thirteen years for me to figure out how to express how essential you are to me… then I hope I have every bit of those thirteen years left to do it. I’ll need them.
