730 Days

A long, long time ago (or at least it feels like it!) we started out like this:

A bright-eyed, bushy-tailed (or at least curly-haired) couple ready to set out on a life together. We had been engaged for a few months when this photo was taken, and were knee-deep in wedding planning. (Speaking of wedding planning--my friend bought me an engagement card that read, "Congratulations! Now elope." She was married already, so she knew what she was talking about.)

I was excited, and nervous. About to take the greatest leap of faith I had ever faced.

And then, two years ago yesterday, we leaped. The day was surreal. Beautiful and exciting and fun, but it almost didn't feel real. I barely ate anything and ran on pure adrenaline all day long.

In the two years since, I've learned so much--about myself, about him, about marriage and love and G-d.

About having fun. Taking the time off from the hecticness of life to laugh, enjoy and connect.

About creating rituals that help you reconnect and make you happy.

About taking the biggest leap there is, and being so glad you did.

Basically, about all the important things in life.

Hope this Wednesday is treating YOU well, my friends!

  12. Happy Anniversary! Your journaling brought tears to my eyes. You have that effect on me. And the pictures of the two of you always makes me smile.:-) I love the elope comment. My hubby and I came *this close* to eloping. But I'm glad we didn't and over twenty years later we both say that ours was the most fun reception we had ever attended.;-)
