September 6th marked our fifth wedding anniversary. Part of me can hardly believe we’ve had five years together already and the other part of me finds it strange to think back to a time when we didn’t spend our days together. All I know is that I feel so blessed to be married to this guy.
This year we decided to go for a weekend trip to Niagara Falls to celebrate and we loved it. It was so nice to have an opportunity to refresh, share and enjoy some special moments together.
I love five years and the knowing that comes along with it. To really know what inspires him and what he’s excited about. To tell him my thoughts and struggles and know he won’t think less of me for them. To be able to know when something’s bothering him and how to get him smiling again. To see him become a daddy to our two sweet children and know how willing he is to be right in there, taking care of them. To know what it is to go through hard times together and come out stronger on the other side. I love the steadiness that comes from always being there for each other.
Lately I’ve been thinking about how much we learn and grow in life as we get older, see new things and experience them in a different way. I’m so glad I get to do that with you, Dan. Thanks for five amazing years.
