Three Months!

Hard to believe that we got married three months ago yesterday. This was printed in our program:

"Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being in love which any of us can convince ourselves we are. 

Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two."

Quote from Captain Corelli's Mandolin
St. Augustine

I loved the quote from the moment I read it, and it fit so well with our vows and the tree we planted. But it is now, after some time has passed, that I have begun to understand just what it means for Matt and I.

I am discovering new things about myself, and our relationship, each and every day. I am so thankful for the man I married and our little family.
