7 years

it's been 7 years today. i can' hardly believe it.

i was trying to think of what to write when i went back to past years to see what i said on this day. i think year 5 said it best, so here it is again, with a few edits and updates.......

it seems like yesterday that we met across the “line” at the restaurant where we were working together. you in your chef’s uniform and cool glasses, me in my horrible, horrible, waitress uniform. (the one you wouldn’t let me get rid of for years because it was the first thing you met me in….how sweet).

in the short time we’ve been together, we have managed to get through some of the most stressful things any couple can manage. we’ve moved 5 times throughout 2 different states and spent 3 years and more money than we ever thought possible just trying to bring our little dude into the world. you loved me through 3 years of up and down, out of control hormones, a long stint of shots in my rump, and sex on demand. you loved me through all the disappointment month after month. year after year. then much to our surprise 2 years later we were able to do it again! this time with much less assistance, but still full of heartache and hormones. our little miracle baby arrived almost a year ago. (and hasn't stopped moving since!)

now that we finally have our little family, you love me through t-shirts & jeans, no makeup, and hair pulled back everyday. you still tell me i’m beautiful even though i know you’d love me to “do myself up” a little more often. though you’d never say it out loud.

you’ve loved me through the start-up of a business which has forced you to stay at a job you hate. you have been such a support through the whole process. i couldn’t have done it without you. i’m a very lucky woman.

for these reasons and many more, i love you as much today as the day we were married 7 years ago.

happy 7 year anniversary baby. i love you.
