I can’t believe how quickly time flies. It feels like only yesterday we were getting married yet tomorrow is our 7th wedding anniversary! It’s funny how it can simultaneously feel like we just met and have also been together forever. I suppose that’s just how it is when you’re with the person that makes you feel complete.
We’re going through a lot right now and have hundreds of things on our to-do lists but we decided to sneak away this weekend and go off-grid so we can spend some time focusing solely on each other and enjoying our anniversary. Sometimes, you need to disconnect and take time to pay attention to the people and things that matter most. It’s also the year of the dreaded “seven-year itch” which Brandon has been teasing me out. Every now and then he’ll randomly ask me, “So, are you feeling itchy yet?” Of course, I tell him no. I’m looking forward to at least 70 more years together! I don’t know what I would do without him, he’s my everything.
It’s been a crazy ride over the last 7 years. Together, we have lived in 4 different states and completely changed our career paths. We’ve miscarried two babies and adopted two dogs. We endured a long mysterious illness with Brandon which resulted in surgery. We’ve been through so much more that we often consider too personal to share here on the blog but through it all we know we are meant to be and we are blessed to have each other.
He’s my champion, my constant encourager, and my partner in all things. He’s the person I know I can turn to when things are hard and the person I can rely on to be there for me and lift me up when I’m feeling low. He encourages my dreams, supports my passions, and believes in me in all things. I’ve accomplished so much I once considered impossible because I’ve had him by my side.
This is my favorite weekend of the entire year and I’m going offline to enjoy every second of it by his side. Happy Anniversary to us! 😍
