You sure? I’m sure (happy anniversary) ❤️

As in all relationships, decisions, or even non-dairy cheese, you’ll never be 100% sure. Forget about being sure and just go for it.

Today is the 6th wedding anniversary for my wife and me. Those years have been all the things you might expect me to say: beautiful, challenging, melancholy, exciting. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

A little tidbit from that day we laugh about often is when our Hawaiian officiant (we got married in Oahu), his name was Piula, got to this part in the ceremony:

Piula: “Do you take this man to be your husband?”

My wife: “Sure.”

Me thinking: Sure?!!!?! 🤯

That was my wife’s answer to that question. Sure! I don’t think many in the small audience at the time could hear it due to the wind and my 2-year-old daughter’s crying. It was an inside joke between us, as she generally despises the word “sure”. She thinks it is too weak and noncommittal. She was trolling me because I use the word all the time.

For example, my wife might ask, “Would you like some (non-dairy) cheese with your eggs?” “Sure,” I’ll say after a little delay.

“By sure, you mean not really?” she’ll add with annoyance. Setting aside the fact that non-dairy cheese is always a no, I get her point. I used to use it all the time when we first met and would like to think I don’t as much anymore, but I’m sure I’m fooling myself. 😃

As in all relationships, decisions, or even non-dairy cheese, you’ll never be 100% sure. Forget about being sure and just go for it.

Happy anniversary to my lovely wife. May you always be sure. ♥️
