I am not the same person whom he married 18 years ago. I was a young thing, just out of University. The pounds have packed on, the face is aging and I’m not as energetic. Luckily, neither is he. I’ve known Steve for more years than I haven’t known him now. We have been through all sort of good, bad and ugly moments together. And we have come out the stronger for it.
So today, I am blessed to say I am celebrating 18 years of marriage to my best friend. We are not the same people but better. (I was going to say something about a fine aged wine but refrained. Aren’t you glad I still have some self-control?)
