4 Years Ago Today...

I married my best friend.
I was trying to think of a less cliche sentence to start off with but there's really no better way to say it. No wonder that line is used so much. We've been together for 7 years total now and I think most married couples would agree that you fall more in love each year. You learn new things about your spouse all the time. You grow closer. You become better people. You complete each other. 

As Maroon 5 would say, it's not always rainbows and butterflies, it's compromise that moves us along. I couldn't agree more. You learn to pick your battles and accept each other's flaws. That's what a real relationship is all about. It's not always easy but it's totally worth it.

To this day, he still opens my car door. He's the chef of our household. He keeps us on budget so we don't go broke. When I ask him to help me with laundry, he responds with "I do man things" then helps anyway. He's kind. He's forgiving. He's the love of my life. I'm a very lucky lady.  

Here we are today, looking forward to the next anniversary:

And here are some old pictures of us, chosen completely at random & in no particular order:

All these years later, I'm still crazy about this guy, occasional red beard and all.
Happy 4 year wedding anniversary to us!
