15 Years!

Well, I'm back.

"Back from where?" you may ask.

Well, I'll tell you, then.

(And, no, this is not a setup to a Back to the Future gag.)
(Though that would have been good too.)

What happened was DW and I just returned from our romantical getaway, celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary!  Yay!

This is a testament to the effectiveness of my relationship strategy.
Which is, as follows:
Step 1:  Find somebody amazingly attractive, and yet crazy enough to put up with your stupid.
Step 2:  Keep your darn fool mouth shut and don't mess it up.

Yeah, I joke, but it hasn't always been smooth sailing, that's for sure.
Happy times.  Sad times.  Fights.  Waxing the car by flashlight.  It's all part of the adventure.
(At least I'm assuming the rest of you have also done that last one.)

But God has held us together through the thick and thin of it.  I know we couldn't have made it without His help, and for that I am very grateful.  That's not just Christian platitude either.  We've seen "the perfect couple(s)" get married... and then divorced.  Meanwhile at our wedding there were actually guests placing bets how long we'd last!  Dead serious!  (Thanks guys.  Amiright?)

But here we are, right?  Somehow... Here we are!!!

And an even bigger miracle still, it's not a matter of, "I made a promise and I'm sticking to it" or "we're staying together for the kids".  No!  There's honestly nobody else I'd rather spend time with after all these years!

Adventures are even better with someone you love to share it with.
(Here's to many, many more Z!)


Live YOUR adventure!
