Maybe the entire 18 years hasn't been pure total bliss, but it's been very, very good.
That's starting to feel like a long time... we're old enough to have been married that length of time. Some days I don't feel that old. Others, I feel so much older.
I have never once second guessed our marriage. It's not perfect, of course, but I know we made the right choice.
He's the best guy I ever could have chosen to spend my life with. I know it now more than ever.
Life hasn't always been easy for us and it won't get any easier. We've survived so many disappointments and setbacks. Just staying married is difficult enough, but staying married in the music business, with the long hours and sketchy pay, is an extra challenge. It's so very much worth it.
We've got more challenges ahead of us. New career paths for me, adjusting our lives to get more family time, raising two teenagers... and more I haven't even thought of yet.
I can't imagine it any other way than Me And Him Against The World. It does feel like that sometimes. The Me And Him part is the most important.
(And Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canucks- enjoy the fireworks!)
