Sunday Summary: Anniversary Edition

Instead of a quote today, you all will have the privilege of knowing our wedding song and lyrics. Please note that we did not play the symphony la-de-da version at our wedding, we went with the original version. Today marks our 6th anniversary and each year has been no less than perfect. Perfect experiences, life lessons and of course our perfect children. People say marriage is hard, parenting is hard and it takes constant work. Well my Super Hubby makes it easy it rarely feels like work. I won't kid you and say we never hit a bump in the road, but as quickly as those bumps come, they go. Instead of those bumps tearing us apart, they bring us closer. My husband once wrote in a card to me that he wouldn't want to take this journey with anyone else and I completely agree. I am not sure I believe in "soulmates," but it is true we are perfectly matched.


So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters  

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters  

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters  

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know  

So close no matter how far
It couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know   

I never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters  

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know  

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are 
No, nothing else matters

Before Marriage

Wedding Day

Earlier this year.

Please note, I am currently skinnier now than in any of these pictures. Yes this is my anniversary post, but it's still my blog and I will proudly announce egocentric things like how skinny I am any time I want.

Thankful Three

  1. A healthy marriage.
  2. Getting everything I wanted out of marriage that I had hoped for before marriage... when I had the naive innocent mind of girl who wanted to get married live the dreamy life. Yup, I am living it.
  3. For marrying my best friend. I know everyone says this, but just ask my husband, I gab about things that are far too girly for him and he sits there and pretends to care like a real best friend.
