"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

And the rain came falling down

15 years ago today, it was a dark, rainy day. We were having a rare November thunderstorm and it felt like the heavens had let loose. It was the type of day that makes you want to curl up with a good book. I wasn't curling up with a good book. In fact, I wasn't even getting to stay inside. I was putting my makeup on, getting dressed, and packing my suitcase. It was my wedding day. 15 years ago today, I married the love of my life in a small civil ceremony. In some cultures, rain on your wedding day is suppose to be a sign of good things to come. I definitely think this rain was an auspicious sign.

It's weird. It both seems like I've been married to him forever. It's hard to imagine life without Vic. But, it also seems like it was only yesterday. 15 years ago I had no clue where the road was going to take us. I had no clue how rough things would get. I did know that I didn't want to travel through this world without him at my side.

Vic is my heart and soul. He makes me complete. I truly believe he was the man meant for me. I'd willingly spend an eon or two on this earth as long as I have him by my side. I love you honey. Happy 15 years.
