Thoughts On Eight Years Of Marriage

Eight years ago today, Dave and I celebrated our marriage. It was a beautiful day and so much fun! I loved being able to celebrate our commitment to each other with all of our friends and family.
Today we are celebrating eight years of being married. Of doing life together, the good, the bad, and yes, even the ugly.
We tried to have a celebratory anniversary date on Friday but things didn't quite go as planned. We had to go to two different places to get a complete supper, we couldn't figure out what to do next, and ended up being serenaded by a public poetry slam about random things like suicide and some guy who mostly was quoting from the Book of Revelation, as far as we could figure out.

It wasn't the most romantic evening together but, at the end of it we were laughing at the terribleness of it and it hit me -- there's no one I'd rather do life with than Dave. Even when it doesn't go as planned and slides towards the ugly. Maybe even, especially then.

Here's to more of the good and to more of laughing at the rest of it. Together.


  1. Happy anniversary! Here's hoping today is free of random, questionable, public outbursts from strangers :)

  2. Happy anniversary! So often for us, the biggest disaster plans end up being the most memorable because they are so funny. It's so important to have a life partner to laugh with. Enjoy your many years to come!

  3. Happy anniversary! We're coming up on 11 this weekend and have no idea what we're going to do to celebrate. :D

  4. Happy Anniversary! :) You all are so cute!

  5. Happiest of anniversaries!!

  6. What??? You didn't find the poetry slam romantic? Hee hee hee! That made me laugh so hard. I hope you both have a great anniversary!!!


Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
