The morning of our 10 year anniversary: He Says/ She Says

As I lie in bed thinking about how fun it has been to get away for a few days just to celebrate us I wonder how the next 10 years of marriage will go. Are the first 10 years the hardest? I ask myself. If so, we’ve got this in the bag.

Just then my husband turns over and I wonder if he’s waking up for the morning after a blissful nights rest, or just stirring. It looks like his eyes are closed but I can’t be sure.

“Why are you looking at me all weird?” He says to me. The first words out of his mouth on our start to year 11.

Yep. We got this in the bag.

Me and my husband are on year 13
Weird we never “celebrate it” we say something like “isn’t our anniversary coming up?” “yeah it is, huh, cool” then we reminisce on that serendipitous day: we both proposed to each other. we were drunk on turkey from thanksgiving and could barely see straight and there was allot of “I love you man” “I love you too” drowsy word slurring then “will you marry me?” me dazed off looking at the ceiling “huh?” him “will you marry me?” me “uhhhh will you marry me?” we’re both confused at this point and say “yes” been blissfully happy since, and will not let our daughters celebrate thanksgiving anywhere but at home. The turkey can make you do some crazy things.

Oh my goodness what a funny and awesome story! Definitely one you will remember. Actually I’m surprised you do! haha. Do you have that story written down somewhere?

It was so surreal it’s seared in my brain lol.
I have not written it down (i don’t know why) I guess because we laugh about it every anniversary.
