My Family Has An Awesome Accidental Tradition
Today is my fifth wedding anniversary. It seems like both too short a time and too long. It seems strange to think I’ve been married for five years, but it also feels like ages since Thrack became a central part of my life. We’ve known each other since 1997 and have been friends all that time. We’ve been in love since 2001 and I can’t imagine what my life would be like without him. I married him on 25 May 2007.
On that day, I repeated a mistake of my mother’s and I love that. When my parents were married, she was so nervous she shoved the wedding ring on my father’s right hand, rather than his left. When Thrack and I were exchanging rings, he moved to adjust my veil, but he used his right hand. I thought he was putting his hand out for me to take, so naturally, I put the ring on it. Completely on accident, I echoed my mother and I love that I have a connection with her tied to my wedding.
I love my spouse. Every day is a joy and a gift.
