In two weeks, my husband and I will renew our vows on our 25th wedding anniversary. Our first wedding consisted of 4 people: myself, my husband, his 10-year-old son, and my best girlfriend. We had a small ceremony because it was a second marriage for us both. The ceremony and informal gathering at our home were simple, meaningful, and memorable.
It’s 25 years later, and we’ve decided we deserve to party down! There’s been lots of good over the years: good health, vacations, promotions, children’s births, and some not so good: our son’s neurosurgery, a job loss, the loss of our house to a fire, and the death of close family members. Through the ups and downs of life, we have worked hard to keep our relationship a top priority and we both agree – we’ve succeeded. So at this notable benchmark in our marriage, it feels only right to stop and recognize our deep love and devotion to one another. It’s a time to celebrate the fruits of our labor with family, friends, and most importantly, with each other.
