7 years....7 YEARS!!! What? How did that happen?
I was so sure I was destined to be that crazy lady at the end of the block with 50 cats sitting on my front porch yelling at the neighborhood kids to get off my lawn while waving my broom at them. I had kind of given up on finding MY perfect guy and had started making plans to move forward on my own after college. Career---CHECK!, Apartment----CHECK!...life was all right. Then it happened:
I went to a party and walked out with a future. I feel like Cliff and I have been together for our whole lives yet I can remember what he had on the night I met him. I remember the way his smile literally stopped my heart (still does, stop gagging at my mushiness), I remember how I told my best friend that I was going "to marry that man" the same night we met. I remember that weird feeling like I could see my children in his eyes and how I just knew, knew without a doubt that he would never hurt me. He went from stranger to safe place in a matter of minutes. I love that <3
I look back at where we started, at the dreams we had and the feelings we shared so early on in our relationship. I feel like the luckiest person ever to look at where we are now, just a short 7 years later and how he has already given me all that I ever wanted. We are by no means perfect but we both seem to just get "it". We have been places together that will forever hold us together like glue. We have had to hold each other up when we were sure we would fall and that does magical things to a marriage. I can't WAIT to see where we go from here. Happy anniversary to us!
....Ok, enough with the mush. Stay tuned for all things funny in the house of toddlers. I just had to take a timeout to acknowledge the reason it all started in the first place.
