We had our first son in this duplex, we brought him home to this humble abode. Had the loudest neighbors and learned how not to treat your wife by hearing the loud neighbors :(
Our first home an apartment, apartment 222 to be exact. We lived here One full year before the raised the rent and we choose to leave. We were married SOO young. I was 18, no seriously, I was 18 and chief was 21. We both were so young and so in love and so in lust all at the same time. We have had some mad fights, some passionate fights, so stupid fights and some funny fights the one where its so stupid you just have to laugh. This home our first represented our unity and it didn't matter how young we were how unwise with the ways of the world we both were. We both made a vow to each other, this here is for life, no matter what. There are no promises when you marry that things will turn out peachy in fact I am more than certain there are no peachy marriages. There are changes to your character because with age you become more seasoned, but the true matter and what lies underneath is that we have promised to each other. The vow you took before God. To Love and to Hold in sickness, in health, here is our dot dot dot...in between.
In children being born, in children dying, in bad money decisions, in good money situations, in taking the garbage out, in not taking the garbage out, in doing the laundry over and over and over, in cooking, in cleaning, in mowing the lawn, in disciplining kids especially when there is a conflict we don't agree with the outcome, in hurtful feelings, in good gushy feelings, in pissed feelings, in stress and chaos, in peace and quiet, in dirty houses with gross showers, in clean house with clean showers, in empty pantry's in full pantry's, in following passions, in lettins ome go, in praying for each other, in praying with each other, in saying good bye to a life we knew, in saying hello to a life a new.
Here is to another adventure in a new home in a new town. Same vows, different life.
ps: I have to mention look at my hubby is he not the cuttest ever. Every time I look at this photo of us, I just can't help but to smile. I LoVE him SO!
