Finally, the blog is truly back! Yay for smart husbands!
Today is our eight year dating anniversary and we are excited. I would like to take this moment to stand up on my soapbox (why exactly is it called a "soapbox" anyway?). I don't care when you get married or how long you've been dating, I think if you're smart enough to keep romancing your spouse after he/ she has been "caught," then you don't have to start all over counting anniversaries.
We dated five and a half years before we got married and we were engaged for a year and a half. I don't quite recommend that length of time for an engagement; when you're as ready as we were to be married, don't wait that long! :-P After five and a half years, there was no way I was starting over. So with that, I say "Happy 8th Anniversary Husband! I love you more now than ever before. XOXOXO"
