“It’s great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.” -Rita Rudner
Oh have I found that one person. Today is my tenth wedding anniversary, and boy have I had the time of my life. For those of you that might have read my blog for the past year and a half, you would not be shocked to hear me ooh and ah about my husband. I have often written about how I am addicted to him, and how our marriage works, but today I can hardly believe that ten years ago we stood on a beach in Hawaii, barefoot in the sand at sunset, just the two of us, starting our life together.
Of course Chris is my special person that I enjoy annoying. Mostly through the times when I (or we) are being silly. I love to get under his skin, as long as it means that at the end of the playful moment I have him laughing or happily rolling his eyes. Without laughter, what is the point?
Christopher, I look forward to the next ten years where we laugh, play, and grow together. You are my favorite person, and the one I love waking up next to each morning, and the one I hope I fall asleep before at night. You are the one I love texting in the middle of the day to find out how your day is going. I love that you laugh at my often made up words, and somehow you still understand me. We push each other to look at life differently each day, and I am honored that I get to spend my life with you.
Here is to another ten years that I get to annoy you. Happy Anniversary!
Congratulations Tami and Christopher! Can’t think of any two more annoying people…just kidding 🙂
What a great way to describe the everydayness of a happy marriage! I’ve never thought of it that way — “one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.” After more than four decades of annoying my husband, I’m blessed that he still thinks I’m funny!
Happy 10th to you and Chris! It is a delight to watch your marriage grow and flourish! You two have the best communication of any couple I know…joyfully annoying each other! It’s a blessing to know that the little boy we’ve known so long grew up and found his most precious one, and that it is YOU!
