today M and i have been married for 7 years.
for the first time since we've been married, it doesn't feel like it was just yesterday. our wedding suddenly feels like it was a long time ago, and like we were just kids then.
and so i dug out our wedding book and started looking at pictures of our day to try to make it feel a little more recent.
we basically laughed and danced non-stop the whole day. and of course, we looked deliriously, infectiously happy and in love.
unfortunately we haven't laughed or danced non-stop these last 7 years- but there has been a whole lot of laughter and dancing- and there has definitely been an overwhelming amount of love and happiness.
marriage is hard work. it's so different than i imagined it to be- in a good way- but different, nonetheless. sometimes i want to punch M in the face because i can't believe he actually just fell asleep again WHILE i was talking to him. other times i want to hug him so tight that he might die from over-squeezing arms because i have so much overwhelming love for him. he's the guy that drives me nuts, and that i am nuts about. i love him for making me so crazy and for taking all the crazy away...sometimes by being crazy and making me laugh all over again.
happy 7 years Mr. Chapman- you're still my favorite person to hug.
