One of the reasons I chose Daniel is because he didn't limit me to what I had done or who I had been in the past. Saturday marks eight years of togetherness for us, and I think one of the reasons we are still thrilled to be together is that we both knew the other was going to change and grow. For the most part, I think, we have enabled each other to do so. I hope this never stops. It seems absolutely essential for really staying together over the course of what I hope will be a very long life.
Over our time together, Daniel has always accepted and encouraged me, never laughed when I wanted to try something new. He supported me as I struggled with the identity crisis of becoming a mother, helped me throughout my career and the dilemmas of working motherhood, encouraged me in my writing, pushed me to have the courage to start my business, and reminds me that he still sees me now that I'm a stay-at-home mom. He is unwavering in all of this.
