You would think after 19 years of knowing each other my husband and I might slip into being ordinary and predictable. While it is true that sometimes we find ourselves very comfortable after all these years he still takes the time to show me how much he loves me. We have our days of challenging one another and redefining our relationship as we both grow into another stage of life and that is GOOD. The other day we were sitting at Cafe Patachou and a couple who must have collectively had 160 birthdays between the two of them walked in and I smiled watching her sort through the paper and hand her husband the sports section while she perused another of interest to her. His hearing was obviously not what it used to be, but neither was her eyesight as she strained to read her section. The soft touch of their hands with emotion unspoken was probably more than it had ever been. I can only hope that John continues to see me in soft focus against the world and treasure the hard work and determination we both put into our marriage. It isn’t our anniversary, I know, but all this mush is because we have had many weekends together lately. Our daughter and photographer extraordinaire, Annie, took this picture of us. I am settled and content with my marriage and life and now I can’t wait to capture many wonderful beginnings for some amazing couples this wedding season. Thank you, John, for being there. The rest of our lives just isn’t long enough.
