A Dozen Years

Yesterday Daddy D and I celebrated our twelfth anniversary.  A dozen years since I married the love of my life.

I love our anniversary.  A day to remember what brought us together.  To reflect on everything we have done.  What life we have built together.  And a time to look forward to what life will bring.

We have grown so much in the last twelve years.  I smile at the lines that form around his eyes when he grins.  We aren’t 19 and 21 anymore.  But I would never go back.  The history we have built together.  The memories we have.  The life we have shared, both the good and the bad.  It is a story that I love to keep writing.

On my nightstand sits a dozen long stem red roses.  One for every year we have weathered together.  Traditional.  Beautiful.  Blooming.  Just like us.

I can’t wait for the bouquet to keep growing every year.
