Yesterday was my and my wife’s anniversary. Since she’s on a crappy rotation now, and working the 6p – 4a shift, I took a half day so I could hang out with her for a few hours. We had a great afternoon, not doing anything really special apart from being together.
We went out and had a nice lunch where we had our first date, went to the mall to see if we could reserve our new iPhones, went to the other mall to try our first Orange Julius (just “ok”) and to browse at the furniture store. Wonderfully ordinary “couple” stuff.
The funny thing is, I can’t imagine a better way to celebrate our anniversary. We’re not fancy-big-production type people, so a low key, mundane adventure is just about perfect for us. Just being together is enough.
And I think that’s a perfect testament to our marriage as well. Everyone’s relationships are different, but for us, we’re the most content and most happy when we’re together. Even after four years. Or, I should say, especially after four years.
The most awesome thing is, that as much as I loved my wife the day I married her, I love her a little bit more every day.
