Aniversary


Today is our 7th wedding anniversary. Here we are back when we were first married. We look so young and thin. We had no clue what it was to be married. All we knew was how much we wanted to be with each other forever. But marriage is much more than that. It's a lot like a roller coaster. There are some really amazing ups and some of the most scary drops down. What makes the ride bearable and fun is having someone you love next to you. Going through everything with you. It always makes me gag, just a little, when people post on facebook and write on their blog that they are just sooo in love with there husband and how he is just the best! I read it and always give a little look at Kevin and say "yeah today, but yesterday she wanted to kill him." Yes, I love my husband and think he is great but sometimes... well you know. Being married isn't a fairytale, it's real life and sometimes it sucks. How you know you picked the right partner is when it sucks and you still can't even think of being with anyone else. One of the great things about our marriage is that through the ups and the downs we are always laughing. If you know my side of the family we are dependent on people thinking we are funny. And I lucked out and found someone who will laugh at my jokes and I guess he's pretty funny too. Always when everything has been said and done we want to be together and we love each other more than can be described. We can't wait to spend many many more years fighting, laughing, and everything in between. What makes everything work is that we still just want to be with each other forever. Our marriage is like a stinky cheese. It just gets sharper and better tasting as it gets older.

Congrats on 7 years! I agree, marriage is hard. We had no clue what it was going to be like, either. I guess no one does. Maybe all the hard work is what makes it so rewarding.

You guys are such a beautiful couple! We just love you guys! I agree that love grows stronger after it's tested. That's when you know it's true love is that after those hard trials you still want to be with each other. You guys are awesome!! Happy 7th anniversary.
