happy anniversary jere
it's been seven years . . .
five houses . . .
four cars . . .
three jobs . . .
two babies . . .
one heart leading two minds.
thank you for making me yours. i love you very much and can honestly say sooo soo much more now than that funny may day when you showed up at my tiny apartment unexpectedly, smiling and sweet. you said, "do you want to get married today," i said (in jeans and a tank top with no shoes), "sure why not, but i have to be at work at noon." you said, "we better hurry we have a 10:45 appointment with Judge Kenny Kirkland." i realized then that you were serious.
sometimes the best moments in life have no real pomp or circumstance. i thought i needed those things but that's just not you. you said loving me and being loved by me was enough for you always. i didn't believe you then, it just seemed too simple.
simple- not complex or complicated, having few parts; elementary; childlike; bare.
that's our marriage, easy, not complicated or complex, with only one true part when it's stripped down bare.
i love you jeremiah wayne, happy anniversary
