Happy 8th Anniversary Babe
Jon and I have now been married for 8 years. I am still in shock about how time seems to be flying by and I cannot believe that it has been 8 years since I married my best friend and soul mate.
I am ashamed to admit that Jon and I have not written those letters that we owe to our Priest. It has been on my to do list for a year now and it has not been completed. So many times I meant to pull that wedding videos out and watch so I knew exactly what our assignment was supposed to be. It still has not happened but now that Jon and I are working really hard on our "to do" lists around the house and so much is getting done, I might just get that letter written to the priest.
Tomorrow night Jon and I get a date night out. We are not sure exactly what our plans are going to be but I think we are both just looking forward to spending some much needed time together.Tonight my mom made us a steak dinner and we even had cake. The kids loved it and then they sang "Happy Anniversary" (same tune as Happy Birthday) to both Jon and I. It was fun to celebrate with everyone.
I think it is safe to say that Jon and I have not had the easiest rode these past 8 years. Our traveled path has been one that was much different than what was anticipated 8 years ago. However, due to all of these challenges, it has made us so much closer. We don't always get along, we don't always agree or see eye to eye but we both know one thing is true...We love each other and as Lots of Scotts stated recently, "We are on the same team"! I know that someday a long time from now, both Jon and I will look back on these crazy times and wonder how we ever did it all. We will remember the ordinary every day moments that we often take for granted these days and we will smile at all the memories. I am confident that we will both agree that we would do it all over again and not change a thing.
Jon, God sure has blessed my life with a husband like you. You are such a dedicated, hard working, and loyal husband who puts your family before any of your own needs. Thank you babe for being my soul mate and very best friend. Thank you for all your love and support. Happy 8th Anniversary and here is to many more years chuck full of happy and fun memories together.
