As hard as it is to believe, yesterday was my ninth wedding anniversary.
For somebody who never thought she’d marry before 30—much less at 24 years old!—I can say it’s been quite the ride.
We’ve traveled together, navigated the waters of first-time-parenthood together, and laughed—a lot—together.
Our first nine years have been challenging at times, but they’ve been remarkable and have made me realize how lucky and loved I am.
Mark, you’ve taught me a lot in nine years—and I can’t wait to spend the next 50+ by your side. Happy anniversary, Bear!
