Seven Years Ago Today...

Seven years ago today....I awoke very, very early, after only getting a couple hours of sleep. I jumped in the shower, which would be the last time I would have a moment to myself for the rest of the day.

Seven years ago today....Me and my closest girlfriends spent the whole morning together, we laughed, shared stories, talked about boys, got all dolled up and cried a little.

Seven years ago today....The weather was warm, the sky was blue, the air was clear, the flowers were in full bloom, it couldn't have been more perfect.

Seven years ago today....I learned what it was like to have a hundred people looking at you. Smiling at you, very happy for you.

Seven years ago today....I saw my father cry for the very first time as he placed my hand into another man's, as he gave me away to that man.

Seven years ago today....I married my soul mate, I became a wife to a wonderful husband, I said my vows and I meant every word of them. I still hold those vows very close and dear to heart today, seven years later.

It has been seven years today. Darric and I have been through so much together. We've gone on a cruise, made it through a back surgery, helped each other through deaths in our families. And most importantly made a child together. Our road has had it's ups and downs, but we've rode them together, not knowing what we were doing, trying to love, support and forgive one We weathered it all, trusting that somehow we could do this together.

Every day we start new. Every day we choose to be here. Every day we greet our little boy that we made together and find another reason why we're here.

Happy Anniversary Darric, I love you! XOXOXOXOXOXOXO
