4 Years Strong

While we were gone in Florida, Puff and I celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary! It is hard to believe that we have been together so long!

 

That's the first picture of both of us together. We had just gotten back from a date to the flea market. Yup... we're rock stars like that.

 

We are coming up on 6 years of being together total, but four of sharing the same last name. It has been my longest relationship ever (his too) and while it hasn't always been rainbows and unicorns, it's been pretty fantastic.

 

I am lucky to call him my husband. I am proud of myself for fighting for our relationship when it got rough. I was so set to run at one point. Not because I didn't love him, but because I got scared. We are meant to be together. We created a family together. Every second I spend with him is worthwhile.

Every year since we've been married, we have celebrated our anniversary by getting gussied up and heading out for a nice dinner. And in true fashion for us, we split the bill. We also do cards, but no gifts. I just want something sweet that he has written in that I can stash in my yearly scrapbook. Something to prove he loves me, right? Ha! I also make him pose for a photo in all our fanciness.

 
Year 1
 
Year 2 - About to burst with Bimmer any day
 
Year 3
 
Year 4 (Can you tell Puff has a certain wardrobe he likes? Ha!)
 

Even though we celebrated a month early this year, it didn't jinx us! (That's what happens when you have to figure out babysitter schedules!) We are in an interesting place in our marriage right now. We are just calming down with the whole "introducing a baby" phase and now we're battling the inevitable "do we have another baby" phase. But it's good. And I'm content and happy. Bimmer is happy. Puff is happy too.

It's a nice place to settle in for awhile.
