Lately it seems that everywhere I look, from FB friends, and blogs I follow, people are celebrating anniversaries. I was teaching middle school when my husband and I were married, so of course we also chose a summer wedding date. I can’t believe it’s been 8 years today. (With almost 8 years dating before that…)
But here we are.
Has it been all roses and dreamy looks? No, life is not a fairy tale. Marriage is work. Those first 2 years were the hardest, so if you are in those early years, hang in there! (And COMMUNICATE! Boy, that would have saved us a few teary nights if we hadn’t worried about hurting each other’s feelings and just TALKED…)
But off my soapbox. It’s been 8 years and 2 beautiful babies for my husband and I. And if things work right, we’ll have a sitter tomorrow night so we can go on a date (my fingers are crossed here).I’ll take my real life over a fairy tale any day.
Happy Anniversary! It’s ours too – we are 5 years behind you though. I hope you get your date night.
Happy anniversary to you, too! We didn’t get our date night yet… But the sitter said she was free on Friday, so there’s still hope! lol.
Sweet! Congratulations on your anniversary.
congratulations!!! gorgeous family!
Thanks! It’s always hard to get everyone still enough to take a pic!
I couldn’t agree with you more about communicating with your spouse. Even after 27+ years of marriage, its still our #1 goal that, unfortunately, we haven’t perfected. We must be slow learners! Congratulations on your 8 years of marriage.
I think it is a skill that takes a life time to perfect! lol. I KNOW we need to do it, but it still is a struggle sometimes…
