The years go so fast. It feels like I JUST wrote this post about being married 10 years.
12 years ago - Chris and I ran off to Eureka Springs and eloped. And I wasn't pregnant. But he was on leave from the Air Force. And there was NO WAY we could be together if we weren't married.
We were 18 & 19 years old. and dumb. and in love.
12 years later. We've built this life and this family and this world. And it was hard. and happy.
Chris and I were discussing someone getting a divorce. And he said sometimes it sucks for 2 or 3 months. And you get caught up in that. And you trick yourself into thinking that it has sucked forever. But it will get better and it does get better.
We know. We have been to marriage counseling 3 different times. We are not perfect. And our marriage is not perfect.
But we have support and respect and love for each other. And for Grayson.
We have a different love than we did at 18. and a different love than we did at 25. and a different love today.
But it's there.
