Lucky Seven

Seven years ago today I woke up early, one of the few times in my life I've jumped out of bed, ready and excited to start the day. I ate a hasty breakfast, and jumped in the car to go get my hair done, then raced to get dressed before dashing off to the church at 11:40am. I remember I wasn't nervous at all until I was alone with my father in the limo. I could feel my heart beating its way out of my chest. Five minutes later we arrived and my nerves were gone as I saw my family and friends arriving to witness our vows. So many people, so many special people made the journey to celebrate us.

The day was rainy, cold and grey. I could still see the sun shining though. Not a single droplet would ever have washed away my happiness. The day was perfect not for the weather, my dress, my hair, the centerpieces nor the awesome cake and flowers. It was perfect for who I married and I wouldn't change a single moment of it.


Today I woke up to the sound of our little Bear, now two, over the monitor. He was happily chatting with his stuffed animals. You were curled up next to me on one side, and our Bug (Can you believe he's four?) was curled up in the crook of my arm on the other side.

I am the luckiest girl in the world and the past seven years have been the happiest of my life. I love you babe. Happy Anniversary.

Here's to many, many more.
