On Marriage
Love one another, but make not a bond of love;
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another your bread but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each of you be alone.
Even as the strings of a flute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.
For only the hand of life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together.
For the pillars of the temple stand apart.
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.
-Kahlil Gibran

Sachs Wedding

We’ve added another year of marriage to the book. In our six years now we’ve bought a house, adopted a dog, bought two vehicles, had a kid (a pretty awesome one if I say so myself) and said good bye to one of our cats.  There’s been traveling and family nights at home. We learned how to play dominoes and found ourselves up at 2 am just trying to end the game! We’ve had ups and downs. Dealing with home ownership craziness and the struggle with the love/hate relationship of our home. And we can’t forget the movie nights in dark basement.

We’re far from who we were when we first met and started dating.  We’ve grown into our own person and striving to be who we want to be in life – no excuses – holding each other accountable (most days. ha!). Even though we’re different people from who we once were – we’re still here cheering each other on – wanting to see each other succeed. Constantly developing a life for us and our family. We’re here. We’re now. We’re living our dream – or at least planning it and moving towards it. We’re not perfect but perfection isn’t us. Here’s to us!
