Since that day, we've had our ups and downs. Well, almost all ups and one down. Only ten days after we got married, I came home to a big hug from Mike and words I'll never forget, "You know that part in the vows, 'for rich or for poor, in sickness and in health'? Well, I didn't think we'd be experiencing them this soon, but I got laid off." The way he has handled the past year since the layoff with positivity, ambition, strength, and sincerity has further showed me what an incredible man he is. He now works for himself in a job he loves, and I could not be happier for him.
