What I Know Now...Anniversary Musings SOL #23/31
I am joining Two Writing Teachers for the Slice of Life Story Challenge. I appreciate this space for writers to tell their stories and connect with each other.
Today Keith and I celebrated our 33rd anniversary. I remember when I was younger (before I got married) thinking that people who had been married for that long must have really boring lives. Hah! Was I ever wrong! Our life is anything but boring.
Here we are on our first anniversary. We had gone camping in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I look back and think about how young we were. I thought I knew everything I needed to know about life and about being married as do most early 20 somethings. Again...how wrong I was!
Thirty-three years later, I am much wiser. I know that at this point in my life, I still don't know everything. I've learned that my way isn't the only way to do something (that's been a hard one for me). I've learned it's more important to listen to what's not being said. And I'm learning to focus on the present and appreciate what I have right now.
Here's today's anniversary picture.
And one with the best photo bomber in the world...
Our life is certainly eventful and I am so glad he's by my side every single step of the way.
