We had been a family long before we made it 'official', but having that special day with our families and friends (all 300ish that made it, from several countries and many states) was something I'll never forget. I'd get married a hundred times (to the same man) just to be able to spend that day with all of our loved ones.
It's been almost 9 years together, and I love him something fiercely. We haven't always had an easy 9 years, and I'm not going to gush and pretend that marriage isn't hard, because damn it is FREAKIN HARD, some days/weeks harder than others. It's work. Lots of work. But to quote the great Ben Affleck "There's no one I'd rather work with"
