Yesterday my husband and I celebrated our seven year wedding anniversary.
We didn’t have a romantic date, go to dinner alone or anything out of the ordinary. We went camping with the kids the night before and spent the day packing up and cleaning the house.
Yes we are thrilling people, I know. Well I did get some gorgeous flowers which are absolutely beautiful but it isn’t about the presents. When he asked me what I wanted for our anniversary, I replied ‘Another 7 years!’ because that is honestly what I want, I want to spend my life with him.
When people heard that it was our seventh wedding anniversary, they instantly jump to the ‘seven year itch’. Yes I know a lot of couples suffer from it and it is devastating but nothing about our relationship says we are bored, lack love, or want something different.
We have been together since I was 15, that is a crazy 14 years together! 14 years of putting up with each others shit. Each others flaws. Each others strengths. And helping each other overcome obstacles. We are better together and couldn’t imagine life without the other. No hint of an ‘itch’ here.
We have been through tough times and overcome them. We have experienced greatness. We have enjoyed so much, including bringing four children into the world. We tackle things together as a team and as a result our love and respect for one another has only grown.
Here is to another seven years (at minimum)! Happy anniversary baby, I love you so so much.
