Seems like yesterday that I was waking up at 5 am with my sister and cousin to open the hotel room door for the people who were coming to do our hair and make up. It’s amazing how fast 5 am comes and I still remember moaning that morning because it was so early.
Our wedding day went off without a hitch. The ceremony, reception and after party flew by, just like special days always do. Looking back, it was one of the best days of my life, but what our priest said on that day has stuck by me. He said “many people say their wedding day was the best day of their life, but I wish that from here out, everyday only gets better and better.” And with my husband, I can honestly say it has.
Marriage is one of the best choices I made in my life. Through these four years Danny and I have gone through a lot (just as everyone does) but the one thing that has always made everything okay is having him by my side.
I always think about this post in the days before it hits our anniversary and how I want to go about it and I’m never quite sure until I sit down to do it. I still read last years post often.
There is so much I always want to say, but without pouring my entire heart out on my blog, it’s hard to pick and choose.
What I will end on is what I’m grateful for in my marriage (besides everything):
You always have my best interests at heart.
I cook, you clean.
Saying I love you multiple times a day.
Switching the laundry from washer to dryer when I (undoubtedly) forget to do it.
Having lofty goals and dreams and then achieving them one by one.
The way you say bye in the morning.
Your laugh (even though it does irritate me sometimes.)
The way whatever I cook is the best thing ever.
Your attempt to be a card person.
The way you just fit in my family and me in yours.
Friday and Saturday quiet nights.
Walks on the boardwalk.
Supporting each other.
Hot coffee in the pot every morning.
I could go on and on but I’ll stop here and say I’m so glad I followed my heart and said yes four years ago today on August 30th 2008. To many, many more years. Love you. <3
