This week, Ellison and I are celebrating our 9th anniversary. And we’re planning to have a party for our 10th next year. I can’t say I’ve gotten quite the reaction I was hoping for from my family – they don’t understand why it’s not a wedding, nor why I don’t want it to be one – everyone else seems really happy for us. It will be nice to bring together folks from various spheres of our lives, who have supported us, individually and as a couple, and have them recognize the (near) decade we’ve spent together, and the future we plan to have.
I’m more deeply in love today than I could ever have imagined.
