We celebrated being married 10 Years! Holy shit y’all ~ @wayobaba and I have been through a lot . Good times, bad times in everything in between. We went to saugatuck and had perfect summer weather. My gift to my husband was to not be in my phone 🙈🙈. And it felt pretty freaking good . .
Twelve years ago he told me he wanted to make babies and well here we are. This trip still included our oldest melting down on the daily, don’t be fooled it’s not all kittens and rainbows. But we laughed, swam, and celebrated our little angel gifts. .
Reflecting a lot this week on my life and the roles that I play. Being a spouse to someone this long has taught me so much about my shadow side. He @wayobaba is one of the few people that has seen all my colors and continuously has chosen love over and over again. Sometimes being married is hard and I want to run away. I’m learning though how like everything else in life it’s equal parts practice and letting go. When I let go of my expectations there’s so much love to see. This man stood by me as I birthed two babies. The first- he stayed by my side and supported my grief in having a homebirth turned C-section. Our more recent arrival ( Zenny Z) he assisted in helping me have an all natural VBAC. .
For those of you that don’t our story. We got married ten years ago on a beach on Lake Michigan . Then we traveled for 4 months to Hawaii where we worked in farms, tended to animals and mutually fell in love with the aloha spirit . We came back lived in a friends apartment ( in her bedroom actually ), then drove with our few belongings to Bend, Oregon with hopes and dreams. Well Bend didn’t work out, it was the start of the great economy crash so we hustled over to Portland, Oregon. We lived with a very loud sweet alcoholic single girl who had very mean girl friends. We did some epic things, like a naked bike ride with thousands of others one wild Portland night. We hiked a n the mountains, we sold things because we were so broke. We shared a two bedroom apartment with another couple. We almost divorced too. So we moved home after that, to Michigan where we have been yet transient to warm beautiful places. Cont --

Greetings from the Island Thassos,
Greece at @la_scala_beach
Sofia, you are not my best friend, your not even a friend, you're my sister. I've always wanted a sister. Now I know I have one I can trust. You are the one person who really "gets me." you love me as much as I love you, we have everything in common. ESPECIALLY Why Don't We. Even when we are texting and we're both typing we will end up saying the exact same thing. It's like we're twins! I know that we were definetly meant to meet. If I hadn't met you, I would be nowhere in life. Lonely, depressed, and probably cutting becuase of bullies. But i do have you in my life. And i thank the Gods for it. Every morning I wake up knowing that I have the best sister anyone could ask for and she loves and cares for me so much. This sounds really cliché but I would honestly do anything for you. ANYTHING. I would die for you. We have laughed together, we have smiled together, we have cried together. We have been through thick and thin, It's a for sure that when Im with you, we can do anything. I would talk about some memories but theres wayyy too many good ones. In fact I dont think we have EVER had 1 fight in 10 years. We had tiny tiny tiny disagreements but NEVER a fight. We love eachother too much to hurt the other persons feelings. When Im with you, I feel safe, I feel happy, and I feel loved. Im not the only one who sould be feeling loved though. So I just wanted to take this time to tell you even though you already know. Sofia, I love you so much and I hope our friendship never ends.(It never will so idk why i said that)
