7 Year Itch

Seven years ago today - I married my best friend! I'm pretty sure we had no idea what the next seven years of our lives would look like - but it's been better than I could have imagined as I stood in that white dress and said "I do" for life.
Marriage is NOT easy. It's something you have to work on every day. It's not the romance and roses 24/7 I might have imagined when I was single. It's a lot of compromise and a lot of putting someone else before yourself. But it's also a wonderful feeling to have someone beside you that loves you in the pretty AND in the ugly. Someone who is not going anywhere. Someone who is there to help you go through the bad times in life so you aren't alone.
It's also someone to share the pretty amazing moments of life with! Our marriage has changed 1000x since we had Harper. I love having someone who loves our daughter as much as I do. I love that we can talk about her non stop for hours. I love what a wonderful dad he is and how much more I love him when I see him being so sweet and tender with Harper. And now our family is growing again and I feel so blessed.
Our marriage is not perfect. It has had a lot of ups and downs - but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I can't imagine anyone I would rather share my life with than Scott.
I love you Scott! Happy Anniversary! Here's to 57 more!
