Ten years ago today, two people who really hadn't spent a lot of time in each other's company, who'd really only met a few months before, but who also knew everything deep about each other, stood in front of judge and vowed to spend the rest of their lives loving, honoring and cherishing one another. The only other people there were witnesses the judge had pulled from the desks to watch the ceremony so they could sign the marriage license.
There was no party afterwards. They went back to his hotel room where he changed out of his suit and then back to her apartment where she changed out of her dress. Instead of gathering with her friends - strangers to him - or either of their families (all but one of whom were in other states), they hopped in her car and she drove. They meandered and saw pretty things. They chatted and laughed and enjoyed each other's company.
Simple. Easy. Relaxed. Pretty much the way their first months together had gone. Pretty much how the next ten years would go. And exactly how their tenth anniversary is expected to play out*.
Have a beautiful day wherever you are. And my life be simple, easy... relaxed for you today and every day.
*Okay, so they're actually finishing up the replumbing of their home today. So 'simple, easy and relaxed' may not be exactly what occurs, but once that's finished, there'll be a lot of relaxing. LOL
