Eight Years

Eight years… eight years.  I’m still not sure how it’s possible that it’s been eight years since my very favorite day of my entire life.  It really does seem like just yesterday, and I remember each and every little detail about it. 

Fortunately, someone had told me a few days before our wedding to be sure to stop and reflect throughout the day, to soak in every little ounce of everything, to be as present as possible on that day, because I would blink, and it would be over. 

Never have truer words been spoken. 

Even though it did fly by, I still hold the best, most vivid memories from our wedding day and someday I will be sharing it with all of you here on the blog... tiny, insignificant details that would have been long forgotten are still locked in my mind and I’m forever grateful for that little nugget of advice that someone gifted me. 

And I don’t even remember who to thank for it.

Today Brian and I celebrate eight years of marriage, and I can honestly say that it’s been the best eight years of my entire life.  Sure, we’ve had our ups and downs like everyone else, but my love for him has never wavered.  Not even for a second.  He’s kind, he’s hard-working, he’s an amazing daddy, and he still makes me laugh every single day. 

My advice to all of those still looking for that special someone?  Please find someone who turns out to also be your best friend.  Life is crazy and it will be so much easier and so much more fun when you’re in it with your best friend.

Thanks for a happy, hilarious, and definitely-never-dull eight years, Babe… and here’s to eighty more, because in the words of T-Swizzle, we never go out of style!
