Seven Years Together

I know you are probably expecting a "what I learned at Bloggy Bootcamp" post from me today.

But, today is Hubs and my SEVEN YEAR anniversary. Seven years ago today, we went from him and me to "us." Seven years ago today, we had the most gorgeous sunny day...only ONE of TWO Saturdays where there wasn't rain in four months.

There were times when we didn't think we'd made it to this day. But, now, we know that we will last forever.

Aw, Shell actually being sweet. *Insert awwwww-ing and gagging here*

I thought I'd share some pics of our day with you, along with the lyrics to our wedding song, which is actually STILL a perfect fit for us.

"All The Way"
by Lonestar

Hey, we're walkin' through this together

And I'm holdin' onto you

Nothin' can separate

This little twist of fate

You're the one my heart belongs to

Nothin's quite as sweet as the journey

So let's go around the world

Takin' in everything no matter what life brings

We're gonna be chasin' forever

All the way

To the end

All my life

And back again

Every day

I'll be here

Loving you

All through the years

And it's true

There's so much freedom in knowin'

How sure we are that we're goin'

All the way

People ask me think y'all can make it

And I tell them honestly

This ain't no fleeting thing

We're not imagining

This is it, we know it's meant to be

'Cause I love you, love you competely

I've never felt like this

I don't want nothin' but

Something that's passionate

'Cause the only way I know how to love is

All the way

To the end

All my life

And back again

Every day

I'll be here

Loving you

All through the years

And it's true

There's so much freedom in knowin'

How sure we are that we're goin'

All the way

All the way

There's so much freedom in knowin'

How sure we are that we're goin'

All the way

All the way

All the way

All the way

Seven years! Happy Anniversary, sweetie!

To balance out the sappiness, I promise to tell you about the part of our wedding with the foot-long snot bubble and how I laughed so hard that people *thought* I was crying.

Also, because this sort of goes with talking about my wedding, not really, it's just an excuse to show off what my legs looked like when I got married, I thought I'd post a quick pic to go along with Supahmommy and Mommybrain's All About MEme Monday: show off a self-portrait.....

Seriously- how fabulous were my legs....7 years and 3 kids ago....LMAO

Happy Anniversary

I think all marriages have their rocky times. The doubters don't help a relationship, I learned early to ignore them (I'm stubborn like that). Most people in my family never thought we'd make it a few years let alone 15 (2/28).

GORGEOUS PHOTOS - love the song. Because John and I got married over 7 years, two kids, (and for him) two step kids into our relationship- our wedding song was Just Another Day in Paradise (by Phil Vassar). At first people were like what?!? when it started but soon they were all nodding in agreement. :)

Happy Anniversary. And your legs were smokin' ;)

I also like that you admit that sometimes you thought you guys wouldn't make it. I don't think young people (or people that haven't been married) realize how hard it is. It helps me get through the hard times to know that so many people have made it through and are so happy now!
