Kevin’s family (John, Janet, and Grandma) hosted a beautiful party for us today. About sixty people joined us for a picnic. A few of the guests were with us for the wedding, but most had not been able to join us in Minneapolis. We are near the sixth month mark, and I loved sharing wedding photos and talking about the wedding. We had a beautiful celebration in January. It was fun to reminisce.
People asked, “How is married life?” I want to shout “AWESOME!” Kevin is more sober- we’ve been through a lot. It’s true. We haven’t just learned to share a home, prepare meals, sleep in the same bed (we both snore), or decide what to do with free time. My dad’s decline, death, and memorial service were major events in our first six months. We’ve crammed so much of the ups and downs, I’m looking forward to some quieter days.
Still it is fun to look back….
