Today is our 20th wedding anniversary.
The last two decades have brought us incredible joys. The birth of our two beautiful daughters, Celia and Helena, and the care and handling of them both that keeps us on our toes. The good fortune to land jobs doing what we love at the same university in the same city (an arrangement that many of our academic couple friends haven’t experienced). Plenty of opportunities to laugh.
We’ve also faced some challenges. My second diagnosis of cancer. Two miscarriages. Struggles with my brother. The loss of Bruce’s mom and dad. Money woes. House woes. Car woes.
Twenty years in, we’ve experienced a lot. But there’s so much more. I’m blessed to be able to share whatever lies ahead with my husband.
