it's our anniversary.
seven years. yep, 7.
we're not really newly-weds, nor are we considered pros at this yet either. really seven years is right in the middle...it's the hard work. we aren't blind to each other's faults anymore, yet we aren't quite accustomed and accepting of them either. we have 3 little ones that demand our attention along with jobs, bills, school, commitments, activities--it's easy to lose sight of each other.
seven years also has the awful attachment of the "seven year itch", which kept popping in my head over and over the past few days.
it doesn't have to be that way though. i do believe that.
it just takes some work.
Constant Communication. Commitment. Acceptance. Forgiveness. Patience. Love. and just to make it 7...lets add Laughter. We love to laugh around here.
to celebrate this 7 years...in the midst of our busyness--- we spent the day as a family--a slow sweet morning with yummy breakfast and snuggles, a photo shoot in the afternoon at a beautiful garden with our sweet little family and then dinner just the two of us talking about how we'd like to spend the next 7 years of our lives and what ways we can better improve our relationship. It was a good sweet day and a perfect way to celebrate our anniversary in this season of our life.
I'm certain that there is no better person that i could have chosen to spend my life with than this man. I'm so thankful for him and his commitment to our family.
