‘Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt.
I’ve known Scott for more than five years and we fell in love immediately. A blind date, a semi-long distance relationship, contradicting work hours and different lifestyles and backgrounds, but we worked hard, we fell hard. Moving in together and road trips and day trips and photos and games. Cats and dogs and a baby, too.
All the while, we laughed. A lot. I’m always laughing with Scott. For our anniversary, we had two days, just us (OK, and a cute baby) and all I freakin’ did was laugh. Over and over. Belly laughs and giggly giggles.
Two years ago, I promised Scott and he promised me to love no matter what — through ups and downs, through trials, through happy times, in sickness and in health. Our vows didn’t mention all the hardships we’ve faced as a team in great detail, but I’m still not surprised at the strength of our partnership.
My wedding day was one of the happiest days of my life, and one of the most special. I had so much fun, I felt so loved, and of course there was laughter.
My wedding day was indeed a beautiful day, despite a torrential downpour, a unity candle that wouldn’t light and forgetting our marriage license. Ooooh, and did I mention our AMAZING honeymoon? Le sigh.
But some of my favorite moments in my life come from early-morning kisses, watching Scott as a father, being silly and staying up late, and sharing tears and worries and fears and doubts.
I have fallen more in love with Scott in the past two years, in the past 13 months, in the past six weeks than I ever thought possible.
You want cheesy lines? I got ’em.
He is my best friend.
