ten years


October 28, 2000, ten years ago today, Alexi and I said our vows.

It feels like a lifetime ago.

I’ve learned at least as much about myself from those years of marriage as I’ve learned about Alexi.

The hard work and the joy of parenting, of forging a life together, the focus on the common good and the functioning as a whole, the fun and the warmth and the making it all come together - it adds up to a wealth of love and connection.

I can’t wait to see what the next ten years bring.

Happy Anniversary, dear sister! It seems like only yesterday that I was escorting you, a radiant bride, confident in love, to embark on married life with Alexi. Our lives have so wonderfully blossomed in the past decade -- the child who was in my womb that day is now almost 10 years old and you have forged a loving home and partnership with Alexi that encircles your two precious sons with love. May you celebrate the rich harvest of love in your life and look forward to the decade to come.
With great love
Lindi
