Herman once read about a couple who measured their marriage not in years, but in the things they had done or gone through. So...how long have Herman and I been married?
5 moves (including 9 months living with his family and 2 cross country moves), 2 career changes, 1 going back to school, 1 cat, 2 couches, 2 family vacations, 1 new car, 8 trips to China, 5 trips to Thailand (I think...I might have lost count), 2 parents with serious health problems, almost losing 1 grandmother, finding out I have not 1 but 2 fertility problems, 4 miscarriages, 3 counselors, 3 hurricanes, 1 house purchase, 20 extra (and unwanted) pounds, tons of Chinese food, tons of used books, and 2 blue dressers.
To Herman, my eternally optimistic husband, who in the midst of a turbulent and insane 5 years, has kept me grounded, believed in my dreams, and always made me laugh.
I love you. Happy Anniversary.
