I look at pictures now and think, wow, we really are this happy. I love seeing the bit of awe -- reverence even -- on our faces.
Then again, it's hard for us be serious for too long.
In a way, we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. All we knew was that I loved him....
He loved me...
And God loved us. And for us, that was enough.
In the meager handful of weeks since the wedding, I think we've both had to take a long, hard look at ourselves. "I really need to grow up and get focused," we say, and "I can't believe I get mad so easily," and what seems like a hundred-thousand times, "I'm sorry."
They're hard, but we always come away from those moments more in love, more committed, more sure that we've made the right choice.
We know we're here to stay.
