For six years today I have been married to this man, I have known him for ten (including our married time together). I am more in love with him now than the day I married him! I didn’t think I could be more in love with him than on our wedding day.

Last night we made a cake together and listened to beach music and danced around the kitchen laughing. He took out the garbage afterwards and called me to the door to, “smell the rain”, he said.

Taking my hand he led me to the door and we just stood there under the porch, smelling the fresh rain and looking at the last of a violet-orange-pinky sunset in the distance.  I hope I get to spend the next 60 years together, just smelling the rain with him.
