Love That Never Grows Old

We drove out to their home, the one they've lived in for 55 years. The one they've raised four children in and hosted countless Christmas and Thanksgiving parties in. The home where my Grandpa has a woodshop in the basement and their fridge tells their life's story in magnets from all of the places they've been on a lifetime of vacations together

As we sat down to enjoy a meal together in their wood-panelled dining room, Grandpa lovingly put a plate of food together for Grandma before getting his own. They sat side by side at the table and Scott and I sat across from them. It felt like we were glimpsing our future selves, watching them together. They were celebrating 65 years married and I asked them to tell me again how it all began. They smiled at each other as they shared about being young and falling in love. About my Grandpa's service in the navy in WWII and my Grandma's work in a mill in town. Grandpa pulled out photos of the house back before the latest remodels and back when they each had fewer laugh lines on their faces. 

At one point my Grandma got up and picked up a framed black and white photo from the mantle. It was the two of them and their bridal party on their wedding day. They were stunning, young, and vibrant in a way I never knew them. But their smiles and the way Grandma had her arm looped through Grandpa's were so familiar. She leaned in close to me and said "wasn't he handsome?!" It made Grandpa blush, even after all these years. 

Before we left I asked if I could take their portrait. I'm their granddaughter so they acquiesced and they sat together on the couch. Grandpa instantly put his arm around Grandma. They snuggled tight without me asking. It was just natural to them. And in the next moment they looked at each other and I knew that love doesn't have to grow old. I believe in a love that never grows old, even as your hair turns grey and your laugh lines deepen from a lifetime of smiling at the sight of each other.  

6 Years Married & Still Head-Over-Heels

This post is coming one day after our anniversary because I spent yesterday celebrating with Scott - just as we should have. We went for a walk with our pug and enjoyed a lovely dinner in downtown Boston. In between, we toasted our love with a glass of champagne and we exchanged thoughts that we had each taken the time to write to each other separately. 

I wrote Scott a letter about our journey so far and most of it is for his eyes only, but he won't mind if I share a small portion about what I have learned over our years together: "And now, I know this much is true: real love is not easy. Real love takes work. Real love will consume you in very good ways and will make you a better version of yourself. Real love takes time and is made clear and strong through the tests and struggles of two people learning to be each other' soul mates. Not soul mates in the easy love-at-first-site way, but soul mates in a way that makes both people feel safe, experience personal growth, and explore new sides of themselves that they never would have otherwise."

But what Scott wrote to me trumps it all. He did not write a letter or even a poem. He wrote me a song. Yup. He wrote and then performed a song for me on the guitar. He is too shy to share, although I know how amazing it is and how moved everyone would be by it. But the title of the song is "Photographs of You" and he was inspired to write it by our very own love story as he looked back on our wedding album this week while I was away at a conference for work. All I can say is that the song and his singing it to me in our living room, surrounded by the things that represent the life we have built together, was nothing short of perfect. Six years married and over 13 years together, and we love each other more than ever.

How lucky are we? Cheers!
