I remember every detail of our big "to do" as if it were yesterday. Rushing out of the office right at 4pm, driving home to meet up with my soon-to-be husband, his son and my sister. A two hour drive to the Oregon Coast. A Justice of the Courts pronouncing us legal at sunset overlooking the beach. Jeans and sweaters. Celebrating with clam chowder and champagne. And so it began.
Mostly ups... a few downs. Constant communication no matter what. And a good dose of compromise.
This year I didn't distract myself. I enjoyed my memories and wallowed in my sadness. Alone.
At a friend's wedding, June 2006
I sure do miss him ....
