Love is not love that alters when it alteration finds. – William Shakespeare’s Love Sonnet 116
I’ll have to tell you the story sometime of how Anton and I came to be Mister and Mrs. AB. I will. Because it’s a whale of a tale. And it’s funny and romantic…and truth be told, it’s very much a GIRLS story. Along the lines of how she got her man. Oh yes, I did ladies. And to be honest? I don’t know that when I started having ooey-gooey feelings about AB long before I was Mrs. AB – I don’t know that I was ever really sure he would feel the same. Or that we would actually start dating. Or fall in love even. Get married? I WISH! Or you know…travel the world and see amazing things together and ultimately adopt and love with every fiber of our being two of the most amazing babies on the planet.
No, I’m pretty sure I was just thinking he was ridiculously handsome and that I wanted to make ooey-gooey eyes at him over a romantic dinner.
He proposed ten years ago this week. And I remember it like it was yesterday. It feels like it was yesterday.
And we’ve had lots of “alterations” over the years – both individually and as a couple, but our Love did not alter for each other.
I’m so very glad.
Here’s to Love and all the wonderful things that came from this man and this woman saying “I do”…
