So hard to believe how quickly the years can fly by. I remember my wedding day like it was yesterday... not like it was 17 years ago!!
We've done a lot in 17 years:
*lived in two different cities more than 3400kms apart (2100 miles)
*made good friends, moved, made more good friends
*had two wonderful sons who are now 13 and 11
*traveled within Canada to visit family and friends
*one awesome trip to the Dominican
*survived living with all sorts of family without killing anyone
*bought a house
*done some remodeling of the house
*started a business
*became chief cooks and bottle washers, taxi drivers, medical personnel, problem solvers, stand in teachers
There is probably so much more I am missing.... but the years have just sort of all fallen in on each other to create just a wonderful life together instead of thousands of different specific memories.
Seventeen years ago I married the man I loved. We were very young, we were a little nuts. But it was a good solid decision and I have never spent a day wishing we had waited. We were meant to be together and we will be together for many many more years to come.
It's not always easy, we're not always smiling at each other... but it's always worth it.
I love you, Bruce... with all of my heart and soul. I promise today, as I did 17 years ago, to love you forever, for better or for worse...
