i married ian ingram in sayulita, mexico 5 years ago today. i am still stunned that i get to be his wife.
ian and i contemplated marriage for years before taking the leap. i am forever happy that we leapt. because writing our vows altered us. it forced us to search our hearts for the meaning of marriage. it required us to explore and share with each other our ideas and expectations of love. creating our vows allowed us to consider what we wanted to promise and what we believed we really could promise. here is what we came up with.
-I promise to move creatively through stillness and change with love as the constant.
-I promise to honor the evolution of that love.
-I promise to honor your individuality, to cherish your dreams, and to help you follow them, knowing that your self-exploration is key to our love. I know the same is true for myself.
-I promise to indulge in and share with you life’s rapturous wonders.
-I promise to walk through fears together.
-I promise to accept and love your family as my own.
-I promise to be humbled by our divinity and to find the poetry in our humanity.
-I promise to love you forever and to allow that love to illuminate the potential to love all the world, all life.
i LOVE ian ingram.
