I walked down the aisle in front of friends and family and said my wedding vows. I promised to love and cherish my husband no matter what. He promised the same to me.
The reception was at the Atlanta Shakespeare Tavern which was lovely. I had worked there when I had been living in Atlanta and enjoyed it a lot. I got to talk to my family and friends who witnessed our vows.
12 years later and we are still going strong.
My love for Peter has only grown over the years. It is like every day I love him a little more which, when I go to bed, I don’t think possible but I do.
He is my best friend. He encourages me to be the best at whatever I am doing at the time or want to do. But he doesn’t let me get away with less than my best. He’ll call me on something if he thinks that I can do better and I appreciate that because it makes me that much better in the long run.
He is the father to my daughter. There would be no Caroline without Peter. She takes after her father in so many ways. Her imagination is boundless and she is turning out to be a good writer as well.
There have been good times and bad times. There has been sickness and health. There has been richer and poorer. We have enjoyed the good times and supported each other through the bad times.
I have been asked what is the secret to marriage. Well I know what works for us. We are partners, equals with in the marriage. We love and respect each other. We make each other laugh. We help each other when the other isn’t feeling at their best. We got each other’s backs.
I am so very grateful that Peter David is my husband.
