19 YEARS

You wake up one morning and you realize that you have spent almost half your life with them. I have now spent more time living with my husband than I have with my brothers or my mom or my dad.
You wake up one morning and you realize that you have had more orgasms with this one man than any other partner you have ever had.
You wake up one morning and you realize that you have farted in front of this one person more than you have farted in front of anyone else in your life.
You wake up one morning and you realize that you have felt more annoyance for this one person than you have ever felt for any other being on the planet.
You wake up one morning and realize that you have longed for this one person more than you have for any other being on the planet.
You wake up one morning and you realize that you are half into your life together with this person beside you.
You wake up one morning and you realize that there is still a lot to learn about your partner.
You wake up one morning and you realize that you have shared more joy with this one person than you have with any other.
You wake up one morning and you realize that you have shared more sorrow with this one person than you have with any other.
You wake up one morning and you realize that you have cared about this person more than you have ever cared about anyone else in your life.

You wake up one morning and you say, "Has it really been 19 years?"

(saw your comment on J's In My Life blog)
Congratulations on 19 years :)
We just celebrated our 14th anniversary.
We also just moved from Bellingham!
And that photo stings my heart for the PAC NW.

Welcome Hannah. Sorry you had to leave paradise.

hannah said...

well, we moved to a new paradise.
But, a large piece of my heart will always belong to Bellingham.
I'm missing the farmer's market excessively right now (next to LaFiamma), and Fairhaven --especially the board walk--and the parks and trails. sigh
And the sunsets above the glorious san juans.
Ok. . . It's still very fresh.

Hey Hannah.
Did you ever see Purple Spiral Pottery at the famer's market? She's a good friend of ours.
And the new paradise?.....

hannah said...

I must have seen purple spiral pottery, if that was a regular at the market. Does your friend like the changes to the farmer's market this year?

we are now enjoying the beauty the mountains of CO offer. :)

I don't anything about the Farmer's Market in Fairhaven except that my friend is a vendor there.
CO is nice!

(ah, we always frequented the farmer's market in downtown bellingham! I didn't communicate clearly. I love Fairhaven, but I like the Farmer's market in Downtown bell'ham so much! They built a big building and i guess took the outdoor market inside :(
