Neither of us look anything like what we did back then. (I wanted to post a picture of what we look like now, but do you know, the last time we had a picture of both of us together, it was for our 15th anniverary. I guess I need to bite the bullet and get one done. If I can convince Gizmo Guy to let someone take a picture of us. Both of us prefer to be on the other side of the lens.)
Over the years, a lot has happened both good and bad to test us, yet we’ve stuck together when none of our friends who married around the same time lasted more than 7 years. In fact, two couples didn’t even make it to their first anniversary. How did we manage to stay together so long, even when life threw its worst at us? Because we’re best friends. We laugh together, talk everything over, and enjoy getting downright silly at times. And we respect the hell out of each other and allow each other to have their opinions even if they’re different from our own. Without respect, you’ve got nothing.
