This Sunday, Jeremy + I will celebrate six years of being married. I tell people I’ve been married forever and they laugh at me and ask how many years. When I tell them it’ll be 6 years this weekend, they often say, “oh, yeah, well that IS a long time.” (Funny – no one ever said that when I said 5 years but once we hit the 6 we apparently got real old. ha.)
I’ve written about our anniversary before. My year five and four posts are the ones I still like to reread when I want to reflect on our life together; I was overwhelmed with so many thoughts about us when I wrote them. Last year as I wrote the anniversary post, I dreamed of what this year’s post would be – all the things I’d want to say + share. And today, I can’t believe how different things are than I had thought they’d be as we neared our sixth anniversary – some for the better and some not.
So this year I’m choosing to carry my anniversary post in my head and most importantly, in my heart. I’ll probably recite it aloud to Jeremy as we snuggle together one night, tears streaming down my face as they always do when I type them for the blog. And I know that the opening line to my post will start with my sweet man’s words that he said to me the other night … “I just know this is going to be our year. I just KNOW it.” J – I carry those words with me every minute of every day + I love you for saying + believing in them so much.
