Today is my 11th Wedding Anniversary. Didn't we look pretty dorky back in 1995? :) Ah well, wer're still going strong and I can't complain. We agreed not to do presents this year cause we are still focused on spending carefully until we get a few good paychecks coming in. Besides, we are sort of at that point where we don't know what to get each other anymore. We have all the stuff we really need and the stuff we want is bigger stuff we'd buy together when funds allow. He did bring me my favorite chocolate bar anyway this morning for our anniversary, so I'd say he's a keeper. Its the little surprises that really make me happy anyway. :) We'll have Chinese takeout tonight for dinner, but that will likely be the extent of our celebration for this year.
Can't say we've never had issues, and that first year I almost left several times. But I feel we've ridden out all our issues (so far anyway! ) and I'm so happy we're still together. While Sean has his faults he has always been someone to strive for self-improvement and that has been so important to our marriage. I admire that in him and honestly wish I had a bit more of it myself. Guess I'm feeling lucky we made it this far and hopeful that we have a bright future together. :) Who could ask for more?
