Nine years. That's how long ago Jared and I made ourselves 'Facebook official' on February 28th. It's truly hard to believe we've been together close to a decade. I don't feel old enough to have been with someone for nine years! ;) Just kidding, I'm almost 30... but that's a post for another day. While we of course have an actual wedding anniversary we truly celebrate, I can't help but smile on this day each year.
There is no one I'd rather be on this journey of life with than Jared. Graduating college together. Searching for jobs in 2008 (ouch). Getting engaged at our favorite place. Planning a wedding. Buying our first home. Job successes and job failures. Traveling as often as we could. Welcoming our little boy. Selling our house and building a dream house. And all those things in between. All the little things that add up to lots and lots of big memories and big love.
Many days I don't feel like I deserve this man. He absolutely is my better half and I mean that. He's so much better than me at most things ;) So excuse me today while I feel a little bit sappy. I've been looking through old photos as I work on my never-ending photobook projects and wow, we've had some good times in these past 9 years, Jared. Cheers to the next nine and many, many more! xo
