Happy Anniversary – 8 years (in photos) !!!

Yesterday the Yank and I celebrated 8 years of marriage. Holy Cow – 8 years?!? I guess I could say something cliche like where has the time gone? – but I won’t. But seriously – where has the time gone? I woke up yesterday feeling happy and excited – after last year’s epic deployment on his end, health disasters on my end, I wasn’t sure we would ever celebrate another wedding anniversary. I will never take our time together for granted, ever again – each moment is a gift. Plus – we were able to share it together, as he wasn’t deployed or on some sort of field exercise. Double bonus!

It was fun thinking about our wedding day, and all the good (and sometimes bad) times we’ve had since, taking a proverbial walk down memory lane. I feel incredibly lucky – I’m married to my best friend, the love of my life, an all around wonderful man – plus he’s hot. Oops – did I say that aloud? Well…. I suppose I did.

In reviewing the photos, I’d like to think we have gotten progressively better looking with age – or at least our style sense has improved. Thank goodness for Stacy and Clinton and “What NOT to Wear”. We’re also trying to get thinner with age, stop all hair loss, keep our teeth white, avoid wrinkles and grey hairs, and defy the aging process in general as naturally as possible. Feel free to laugh at any time. On a deeper level – I’m so grateful for who we are, all the things we’ve done together, the adventures we’ve shared, our life that we’ve built, and all the GREAT stuff in our future.  Happy Anniversary Sweetheart! I love you!
