10 Years

Ten years ago today, on a beautiful spring like day I became Mrs. Michael Murphy. Our wedding day was so close to perfection.  It was everything I dreamed of as a little girl.  I had a gorgeous princess gown… my handsome groom  had a tear in his eye as I walked down the aisle on my dad’s arm.

There was dinner dancing, cake smashing and a great time was had by all.  I don’t believe that a wedding makes a marriage, however I do think that our wedding was and is memorable, and I am so glad we did not run off to Vegas like I had threatened to!!!

Ten years of marriage  is a great accomplishment nowadays when divorce is so prevalent, and Hollywood has made the 15 min marriages famous.  Mike and I have beaten so many odds. We have faced more in our ten years of marriage than most couples do that have been married fifty years, and we are stronger for it.

Is the honeymoon over… yup!  But, I am OK with that… We are OK with that.  We are real… we are raising two young children, caring for Katy, juggling extended family and there is not always time for us. We squeeze it in when we can… and maybe that means Chinese take out and Mad Men via Netflix… and I wouldn’t want it any other way
