Day 19: Someone I could picture myself marrying . . . let me think. Only joking Steven! The funny thing is I feel I got really lucky. Like somebody out there was looking out for me when they didn't interfere with me marrying Steven, because things could've gone way awry with us two.

We got married completely in love (like everyone does). Then within a few months of living together and doing life together I thought "wuh-oh!" Not because of Steven, just because doing life with another person is HARD. The hardest part for me was Steven wouldn't let me get away with it!

He kept at it and at it, and it would drive me insane that he wouldn't let a sleeping dog (me) lie. Then one day it was easier than the last, and then the next day it was easier, and so on. Every once in awhile we have one of "the talks" that drives me insane. But I try to remember our first year of marriage and how if we had never had those talks, we very well may not be together today.

Steven isn't perfect. I won't even say he's perfect for me, because I don't know what that is. But he challenges me gently. He supports me. He works hard in everything that he does, including relationships. He laughs at me and makes me laugh, and I've never been more comfortable with ANYONE on the entire planet . . . and actually, that is kind of perfect for me.

DAY 21: A picture of something that brings me happiness . . . EASY.

Having the opportunity to spend so much quality time with this little gal has been a wonderful surprise. It was almost the complete opposite of what we had planned. I hope Steven doesn't feel like he got the short end of the stick. Being with her is one of the greatest things that gives me happiness.
