8 Years

This is the only picture I can find on my computer or online.  A random low-resolution proof from the photographer.

That's how long we've been married babe, I have NO IDEA where our digital photos are!

On a CD in some messy drawer at home?  Goodness, I hope so.

Yesterday was our anniversary, and it is just such a trip to think back on these past eight years.

...buying our first house, painting, painting, painting, bringing home our sweet little practice baby (aka a puppy) one year later, unforgettable trips to Costa Rica and Peru and Vegas, two years spent studying together at Augsburg earning our MBAs, constant renovations and updates to our home, date nights, movies, new restaurants, boozy weekends with friends at the cabin, bikinis and softball tournaments and 5:30 AM runs, three martini happy hours, skiing in Breckenridge, antiquing in Red Wing, throwing wild and crazy Halloween parties...

And then this happened.

And this.

Then that baby turned into a KID.

And we decided to do it all over again.

And here we are.  8 years!  Life is SO DIFFERENT.  And so wonderful.

Now it's play dates and Saturday morning walks to the park, shared laughter over the insanity that comes out of our son's mouth, hearts bursting with love and pride for these two little lives we created that we spend our days nurturing.

Happy Anniversary babe.  Can't wait to see what's next.

What a great post! I'm not quite sure how it was actually 8 years ago you got married already, but we all know time flies.

If you don't already know, you and Dan are SUCH a great couple. I had always wanted exactly what you two had, so thanks for setting such a great example for me! Love you guys!
