"i like where we are."


that's what M said to me last night when we were crawling into bed.
and i couldn't agree more.
it is so wonderful and magical to be a newlywed.
it is so life-changing and love-deepening to become parents together.
it is so rewarding to graduate from college and move away, start a career and build a life together.
and then life just lands in fast-forward until we have extra wrinkles, gray hairs, and love-handles, and all of a sudden we've been married for 6 years.
from the tiniest most ridiculous disagreements, to the toots that make us laugh uncontrollably, to the overwhelming worry that comes with being a parent, to the stress of home-owning and bills bills bills, to the endless dieting and splurging, to the kisses before work and the snuggles before bed...
i like where we are, too.
wrinkles and gray hairs and love handles and all.

happy anniversary to my love.
you'll always have my heart.

xoxo
