7 years

Today is officially our 7 year anniversary, but this week is packed with obligations… and isn’t off to the best start. Even in the midst of “one of those weeks”, I’m still happy that I’m marching through life by your side. And though it may come off as totally cheesy (which it’s not meant to), I thought I’d share my favorite reading from our ceremony.

“Love is a temporary madness;
it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides.
And when it subsides you have to make a decision.
You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together
that it is inconceivable that you should ever part.
Because this is what love is.
Love is not breathlessness,
it is not excitement,
it is not the promulgation of eternal passion.
That is just being “in love” which any fool can do.
Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away,
and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.
Those that truly love, have roots that grow towards each other underground,
and when all the pretty blossom have fallen from their branches,
they find that they are one tree and not two”
– Captain Corelli’s Mandolin

I love you. Happy anniversary, Hubster.
