After the seventh ring of Hell that was cleaning out the house in Pittsburgh, 3 days later was the complete opposite. We attended a wedding in NYC which was beautiful. The daughter of our good friends had been planning for this day for a long time and I think Im correct in saying, she got the perfect day she dreamed of.
Every detail was taken care of and both the church and the venue were exquisite. The bride looked beautiful and her groom handsome. The most important thing was that they both looked incredibly happy. I remember when Sam and I got married, back when the dinosaurs roamed the earth, and I remember the feeling of relief that all the planning and worrying were over. I never was worried about the actual marriage, just that everything would go smoothly.
Over the years Ive learned a lot about what it takes to be with someone for the rest of your life. You have to let the little things go. You have to remember no one is perfect. You have to compromise. But most of all you have to make each other laugh, even during the hard times. I think that is the most important secret to a happy marriage.
So to Caitlin and Dave, I wish all the love and laughter there is and a lifetime of happiness.
