This year could have shattered us, but instead it made us stronger. On the occasion of our wedding anniversary I offer my own tribute to love.
Every time this year felt too hard, too lonely, too foreign; you made me smile.
Every time I wanted to give up, go back, get comfortable; you kept me grounded.
Every time I got lost, confused, flustered; you helped me find my way.
Traveling together taught us to be more understanding of each others differences, and how to be compassionate towards one another even when we can’t understand.
This year was meaningful in ways I could have never imagined, but the most important thing I discovered is that I can live anywhere in the world; as long as you’re with me, I’m home.
