20 Years Ago Today

Twenty years ago today...Mr. Bybee, not his real name, but we'll go with it for today... and I tied the knot. Yep, we hitched up after six long years of a dating.

Twenty years, two careers, two kids, two houses...several pets and probably twenty pounds later and we can say we've been married for two decades.

Marriage is a journey, not a destination. It's full of serious highs and plenty of lows. From amazing family vacations to the quiet laughter over the same thing on the TV... from the hospitals to the funeral homes... marriage is working through the trials that life gives you holding someone else's hand. Sometimes it's holding someone else's hand up to keep them from falling, and sometimes it's having that someone hold you to keep you from drowning in quick sand. And every once in a while it's just holding hands with quiet understanding and love.

For twenty years of holding my hand... I love you!
