Six Entire Years


How someone as great as Jared has put up with me for this long now is completely beyond my understanding. Today marks six years since we officially said we were, well you know, official.

We were young, crazy college kids from the same hometown who found each other at the same college three hours away. It's crazy to think of how we actually got together, so many little details orchestrated the timing of it all. God sure knew what he was doing, putting us together when he did.

So we're celebrating tonight in a special way that I look forward to sharing next week. Sure, we have a "regular" anniversary on that oh-so-special day in May that we got married. And we absolutely celebrate it big! I just can't help but hold onto February 28th and smile every time I think back to where it all began. On a tiny, college campus

Thanks Jared for loving me unconditionally and for making my life as amazing as it is. Seriously couldn't imagine what life would be like if a mutual friend hadn't shown me your Facebook profile picture ;) You are my best friend and as we like to say, "teammate for life!"

Do you celebrate a special date in your dating history??

  1. I still remember our "official" when we got together day, too. Actually, it's in March, we're coming up on 4 years! I think it's quite a privilege when your husband is a part of those young and crazy college memories!

  9. I think you should celebrate all special and important dates, even if it's the anniversary of the first time you got pizza together!!

  10. I honestly can't even remember what day specifically we first met or even the month, I know it was either August or September. We don't really celebrate an us day, it's kind of weird that it's never really crossed my mind until now.

  11. Yes! It's a great month to get together- our 9th dating anniversary was Feb. 23 and we celebrate that instead of Valentine's Day :)

  14. Our first date was a baseball game in the end of May, so we always sneak one in to be a little sentimental :) Plus, who doesn't love a good baseball game in the spring. Have a fun weekend!

  15. We always have a mini celebration of sorts on our first date anniversary (April 19th). This year will be 13 years together :) Funny thing is it is the same day as my in-laws wedding anniversary!

    Have a great weekend Erin!

    PS. Glad to see you are back!

  17. We're (well, I) am a huge fan of our dating anniversary. Granted we aren't married yet, but will be come October, but regardless, we will continue to celebrate our dating anniversary as well as our wedding anniversary. I mean, come-on, we will be celebrating 10 years of dating in June and that's a long time for my man to put up with me :-)

    We are similar to you guys... we started dating very early in our college years and it was wonderful getting to experience all things college with him.

    Happy anniversary my dear!!

  18. Caleb and I will always treasure both August 24th, our dating anni, and August 18th, our engagement!! Love how you two are celebrating tonight!! :) Mwaahh!

  19. Yay! I'm glad we aren't the only ones who still celebrate the dating anniversary even though we're married :) ours is exactly a month before our wedding anniversary so it's sort of like the mini celebration to say we've almost made it another whole year!

  20. Six years?! Happy anniversary, that's so awesome. I WANTED to celebrate our dating anniversary after we got married... but evidently I didn't make this clear enough to Tim, who skipped it entirely. This year I'm putting it on the calendar for him with a week-ahead-of-time reminder! :-)

  22. Too sweet for words. What's crazy for me is that the day that Rob and I met is the day that we started dating-- we've only been apart four nights since then in two entire years.

  23. My husband and I still acknowledge our dating anniversary. We don't go all out for it now that we are married, but December 7 is still special to us.

  30. October 8 is a special day for Shawn and I. We grew up 45 minutes apart and our high schools were in the same conference. But we met on a small college campus in Columbus. Small friggin' world! So glad the stars aligned and you two found each other!!!
