Ten

photo credit
It's been ten years since Macky & I made our relationship official and started dating.
Ten whole years. That's almost half of my life. 
This day feels momentous (ten!) and fated (ten). 
An ending (ten.) and a beginning (Ten...).
Ten whole years.
That's a start. 
That's a chapter.
That's a milestone.
Ten whole years together.
And the desire for ten years more.
And ten after that.
And ten after that.
And ten after that.
And ten after that.
And ten after that.
And ten after that.
And ten after that.
And ten after that.
And ten after that.
On and on it goes.



Macky and I were talking about today recently, and I jokingly called it our David Tennant* year. We're celebrating ten years of being in a relationship today! It's seriously incredible to think that I've been 'with' Macky for so long already. It's particularly mind-blowing thing considering it feels like no time at all has passed in spite of the many adventures we're shared. Those of you who've been following the blog for a while have been privy to our story (like his surprise proposal and our wedding a year later, our long distance love experience, his arrival in NYC (a year after the wedding!) and our adventure in Florida, to name a few), and I have to say - I am so, so, so blessed. 


Love isn't always easy, and our relationship has had its share of plot twists along the way. But, to me, it's become so simple. It all boils down to the fact that I love Macky. I know him and he knows me. I choose him. And I will keep on doing so until the day I die. No matter what happens, good or bad, I'm in it for the long haul, and so is he. And that, my friends, is something worthy of a celebration. 

*If you don't get the reference, he's the Tenth Doctor.

  1. What a beautiful post. Loved the poem you wrote at the beginning.

    Congrats, Alexa and Macky, on ten years of being together! That's definitely something to celebrate, and it's something to look back and move forward with. I really liked what you said about choosing Macky and how you'll keep on choosing him...because it's true, love is a choice that we keep making and affirming, every day.
