Renewing our Vows

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Over the past year, I've been attempting to fulfill a list of 30 simple things I wanted to do before I turn 30 on August 15, 2013.  Number 18 is:  Renew my vows.  I'm not sure why I wrote that last August 15th.  Perhaps it is because when I think back to who we were when we started dating in 2001, I see that our relationship has changed immensely over the years.

We are not who we were when we were 18 and 20.  We've grown and changed and spent several years abroad, and, I think, spent more time together than any other married couple which is why we've changed together.  The changing and growing that you do in your twenties was done side-by-side, hashing it out, talking it through, and analyzing everything.  And so, we renew our vows because our love is different today than it was in 2001 or 2003 or even from last year.

Initially I thought about a party, a weekend getaway or a full ceremony.  But this little piece of internet here seems like the perfect place to do it. And so, my husband and I pledge our love again today - and every day heretofore.



























Daniel, 
Ten years ago I said "YES" and five months later I said "I DO!"  You are my sunshine on the dreariest of days.  Your wild ideas and passion for life have made my life so much more fulfilling and exciting than it would have been without you.  You are the best husband a woman could ask for.  You are, without a doubt, my better half.  I love you forever!

Lindsy, 
You are so beautiful and incredibly funny. You are my favorite person in the whole world.  You know how I get about sunsets, they happen every night and yet every night I can't help but stand in awe.  I feel ten times more about you. I am caught off guard every day by how much I love you. You are the best wife a man could ever ask for. I am so madly in love with you.
