On 28 December 2006 I said I do to my husband, to be his lawfully wedded wife through thick and thin. We got civil married in Cyprus (by then we were already best friends for 7 years).
I knew him well enough to be certain he was the right man for me..
Guess what....We've been married for a DECADE now! Wow!
Today I am in disbelief that the time has passed so quickly, and yet here I am looking back and thinking how full these ten years have been.
- We have walked through so much together....Perhaps Downs were more than UPs!!
- We got to travel, explore, and enjoy 5 countries together.
- We changed and lived in 3 Houses together.
- We are blessed with 2 beautiful angels... even though they drives us super crazy on daily basis, yet we can't imagine our lives without them!
Over these year, we've both GROWN, changed and matured...sometimes :)
Now that we have made it through our 1st decade together, I wonder if the next ten will fly by even faster?
Our marriage has gone through countless of ups and downs, and enough explosive big fights..big enough to almost terminate it all. But we loved hard and fought even harder, because we were afraid to lose each other. At times we were hurt and shocked by the other person who pops up during 1 of those ugly fights.... that stranger who seemed to have replaced each other. Other times we were afraid because our marriage felt like quicksand.
Now we have a mutual understanding, a promise in the form of a silent contract.... No matter how hard it seems, we don’t give up on each other.
We don't have the PERFECT marriage...and we are not the same Love birds we used to be!!

As for us, our perception of gifts have changed. We figured out it is more fun to go on a family weekend getaway, we get to explore and enjoy one of the lovely areas in Lebanon, as well to spending a quality family times together and above all making and adding more and more lovely moments to our long list of cherished memories.
