7th Wedding Anniversary

Today is a special day for me and Ian. 7 years ago today we drove to Folly Beach, SC and got married on the pier. It was night time and it was beautiful. It was a simple ceremony. We only invited two people. I can't believe it's been 7 years. It's been a rough road. Shortly after we became husband and wife, we became parents. In that one year so much happened to us. We got married, had a baby and shortly there after September 11th happened. Ian was deployed and I spent our first anniversary with our son. When he finally came home it was hard to get back to the "normal" that we knew. I had gotten very independent while he was gone. I kept myself and Brennan busy so that I wouldn't sit at home and watch CNN all day long. Seven years later and so much has happened. For one thing we have another baby. Second we live in Utah now. There are several other things but those are the two most important.

This morning I got up and made french toast for our family. It was a nice family breakfast. We aren't doing anything major this year to celebrate except that after Ian gets off work tonight we'll have dinner, watch some tv and maybe play a game, tuck our kiddos into bed and reminisce about how we got here. Sounds like a pretty good anniversary to me.

Ian, honey, I love you so much and I'm so happy that you are my husband. I love our life together and though we've had major ups and downs we are still strong. I can't wait to see what life has in store for us next!
