Sunday, Davy and I celebrated 6 years of marriage. We agreed that it actually feels like the right amount of time has past since that day we spoke vows in a small town church and drove off into the sunset to start our lives together. What do I mean it ‘feels like a right of time’? Well, every other year has flown by and at our 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and even our 5th anniversary, every year, we have been flabbergast about how quickly the time past and we couldn’t believe we’ve been together that long. This time it feels right, though.
Time is a funny thing, and you never really can tell just how much of it you are wishing away, and how much of it you probably hold onto too tightly. I am so thankful for my husband and who he is and all that he does for us. I savor all the little moments that we share together. Most of them probably seem mundane or insignificant from the outside looking in, but they are beyond special to me. They are sacred.
Most of these moments, I don’t have snapshots of. They are slow mornings drinking coffee and planning out the day. They are quite nights working on projects or just watching a show. They are brushing our teeth together before bed and discussing bills and sharing leftovers.
This has been one heck of a year. In more ways than one. But looking back on these past 6 years, I think Davy and I are more comfortable together than ever before. There was a lot of getting to know each other that actually happened after we got married, because we did sorta get married fast. (only compared to some). Of course, there’s only so much you can learn about a person before you join lives together and live with them. We are always growing closer together with every passing year.
The business here of Shawnee Moon has ebbed and flowed over the past 6 years. The founder and my dear friend, Victoria, past away now six years ago. I’ve been honored to carry on this work and add my own personality and creativity to the business as time has gone on. We have great months and some very lean months.. such is the lot of a small business owner. You never know when the next thing may work or not so you just keep trying.
God continues to provide.
