“Love, being in love, isn’t a constant thing. It doesn’t always flow at the same strength. It’s not always like a river in flood. It’s more like the sea. It has tides, it ebbs and flows. The thing is, when love is real, whether it’s ebbing or flowing, it’s always there, it never goes away. And that’s the only proof you can have that it is real, and not just a crush or an infatuation or a passing fancy.”
Aidan Chambers, This is All: The Pillow Book of Cordelia Kenn

I’m just two years into a marriage.  With each passing month I notice our marriage evolving, fluctuating.  It’s a living, breathing thing and like a child you see everyday and then look back at pictures and realize how much they’ve grown, a marriage is the same, morphing the tiniest bit day in and day out.

Happy two years to this man, the guy who calls me Princess, cooks for me almost nightly, who makes me laugh, who has a thick Indiana accent, who loves his grandma, tolerates my passed-down freight train-like snoring problem, and who has the Bravo channel memorized but would never admit that to anyone.
