Babe & I celebrated 8 years of marriage yesterday.
I still can't believe it.
It feels like just yesterday we met. Started dating. Got engaged. Decided to make it a long engagement for various reasons. Got pregnant. Up'd the wedding a few years. Said "I DO"!
And I wouldn't change a thing.
I won't lie, it hasn't all been easy. There have been more hard times than not.
But looking back over these 8 years, it's amazing to see how far we've come.
I am so proud of us.
And what we've accomplished.
We have 3 wonderful children. A beautiful home. Great jobs. Awesome family. Awesome friends.
I know the hard times aren't over, but I also know that with Babe right there beside me, we will get through whatever is thrown our way. Without a doubt.
I worked from home yesterday and Babe took the day off.
Monday, I came home to some hanging flower baskets...been wanting those since we moved in...Babe knew it ;) He's awesome.
I used a Pinterest idea for his gifts ;) Anniversary gifts on the hour...where he opens 1 gift an hour.
He LOVED it. And since he was home, I got to enjoy his excitement as each hour I said "it's time to open your next present!!"
We got dollar crabs for lunch and then spent the evening playing with the kids and cleaning out the garage!
Romantic?! Sure..in it's own little way! It was OUR day, and we made the best out of it!
I enjoyed every second :)
Happy 8th Anniversary to my Babe! Love you to pieces :)
5.1.04 to 5.1.12 and continuing...
