Two Years


Today marks two years of wedded bliss for me and Art. 
We've never really been married anywhere but Austria.  (Those first two weeks in Houston after the wedding packing up and preparing our move don't count.)  I wouldn't say it's easy to get married and move across the world to another country, but I would say it's been well worth it.
  
Our relationship has grown so much in the past two years.  Like my friend Amber says, "When you come here, you are really stripped of everything familiar"... and I have found it gives you sort of a fresh start and clean slate to build the life that you both want.  It's not easy living life without your friends and family around, but it does allow you to focus on what you both want, no outside pressures or distractions.

It brings you both together, because at first, that's all you really have.  And although every moment isn't bliss, the whole thing's pretty dang wondey.   I love you, Arturo.
