My husband and I are celebrating 19 years together as a married couple. We had started dating in July the year before, and then we got engaged a month later. We probably would’ve gotten married sooner, but I was a senior in high school and still a minor. I also really wanted to elope, but he wouldn’t go for it so we had a pretty small wedding.
Our anniversary falls on a Monday, so we went on a date Saturday. We went to our favorite pizza place (where Jerm saw a roach walking in the bathroom; not sure we’ll go back there now), and then we walked around Academy Sports, Harbor Freight, and finally got some hot chocolate from Dunkin’ Donuts. It was a good day. I love when we can just hang out together without really doing anything.
In our 19 years together we’ve had our share of ups and downs. Some of those downs were pretty rough, but we always came through stronger than we were before. I am so thankful to God for giving Jeremy to me. He’s my friend, my lover, my protector, and I can’t imagine life without him.
