A perfect fit

"When the last speck of fairy dust is gone, and you are married to exactly the person you married and not any fantasy of your own, you find out whether you have what it takes to make it through a few more decades of togetherness. It takes commitment, it takes forgiveness, it takes resignation and compromise, but with all of this, you still have to feel tenderness. The person you see in those eyes that meet yours across the pillow, or the dining room table, or over the head of the child whose hands you hold... if that person still touches something wordless in you, you can imagine that there are still good parts left, still surprises in the story."

A and J got married this Saturday at a gorgeous arboretum in a truly fitting ceremony. Congratulations!
