I almost answered too quickly.
Yes! A thousand times!
I really didn’t realize he was going to ask, until the scene started playing out in slow motion.
And then I knew what was coming was a question that would change my life.
Will you be my wife?
There was nothing else I would rather be.
We began our journey through young adulthood to parenthood and beyond, not knowing much about the future other than who we would be sharing it with. The writing of our story unfolded one year at a time, through new jobs, new addresses, new little additions to our family.
And now, almost on the other side of parenting, we are at a place that feels much like when we started out.
Not knowing the path, but knowing who we will share it with.
And that question that changed my life?
I would answer it the same 26 years later.
Happy Anniversary, babe.
