We should celebrate

Three years ago today I said yes to my favorite person on the planet, after already spending our lives together for nine years and a bit.

Our lives were turned upside down not long after, first by the birth of our boy, then by moving to another country, and finally by the birth of our daughter.

Our life is not as it was twelve years ago, and not even as it was when we married.

We planned on celebrating a little today, but things did not go as planned.

A sick daughter. A recently recovered son. Recipe for a rough day. The roughest I’ve had in a long long time The result: two physically and mentally drained parents.

It was a long day, but the kids are now asleep. Peace has returned to our household. It’s not always easy. It doesn’t always go as planned

But tonight we celebrate – the joys and the struggles. Life and love.
