4 Wonderful Years

Four years ago today my husband and I were in Vegas getting married. No, we were not drunk, nor did we elope. We simply wanted to do something small, fun and different. With our families by our side we said our vows and became husband and wife.

We're going to go out and celebrate this weekend since we are both pretty tired during the week. One thing we always do on our anniversary is watch the DVD of the ceremony and look at our pictures from the trip. It's kind of a fun tradition, looking back on that day. We'll do that tonight after dinner and Big Bang Theory.

This month I've had weddings on the mind even more than usual as my cousin is getting married. I see facebook posts from his fiance regularly about the upcoming event next weekend. We can't afford the trip to Virginia for the ceremony but it has me thinking about my own wedding even more in the couple weeks leading up to today's anniversary.

Sitting here in the living room with a migraine I can't help but feel incredibly lucky. I love my husband very much and he loves me. Despite my chronic pain and all the ugliness that surrounds it, we continue to grow closer. Life is pretty hard for me right now but I can't imagine how much harder it would be without my wonderful, loving husband.
