June 21 marks the first official day of summer, the longest day of the year.
For Patrick & I, today also marks 7 years of marriage. :)
Today is our anniversary, and looking back, it's hard to believe we're starting our 8th year as husband & wife.
I've heard of the 7-year-itch. I can honestly say I'm not "itchy". Don't want to scratch.
We've been though a lot in our 7 years so far, but I feel confident that many many good things are waiting for us.
We've conquered financial difficulty, job uncertainty, and I strongly feel that our best financial future lies ahead. In the last year alone, we've paid off our car and all credit card debt. We're frugal in wiser ways now, and just starting our 30's.
I can still see signs of the guy I started dating back in 2000, and I love that person still. I also see the incredible man my husband has become, and will become, and I love him for that person, too.
I love our life right now. Sure, I wish we had more time to actually see each other. But the time we have is good.
We live in a town we love, a house we can afford, safe area, and together we're establishing our home.
We love our church and Aidan's school.
We still enjoy playing silly games, playing 500 Rummy, and watching movies together.
We look forward to the trips that lie ahead, both alone and family-vacation style.
The 1st 7 years have been very eventful, busy, and full of changes. The first 7 have been good.
Here is to more great times ahead!
