Eight Years: [It all started with a..]

Monday, June 27, 2016

After hearing this song on the radio the other day, it had me thinking about us, and how we all started. Instead of a beer..
It all started with a shot of Southern Comfort, a reference to a 7 Up commercial, and tattoos.
Sounds like a promising start to a relationship for sure, huh?! 
Well, today we are celebrating 8 years of marriage..!!

The Mr. and I both played sports in college (at the same school); we had common friends, common grounds. I knew I wanted to marry an athlete and someone taller than me, so the basketball team was a perfectly vain place to start looking, right?! Well the Mr. caught my attention with his looks, demeanor, and tattoos. His height was certainty acceptable so I asked my BFF and teammate (girlfriend of one of the guys in his group and teammate), about him.

We finally had opportunities to get together - he treated me like a queen and made me laugh..
Eight years later, that's still the case.
This week we'll be celebrating by going to see--at one of the top venues in the nation--the guy who sang the song we danced our first dance to at our wedding and named our daughter after. Pretty ideal way to celebrate if you ask me.

To my Mr., 
Thank you for picking me and thank you for this amazing life!! 
You are my best friend, my support, my love. 
We aren't always perfect, but we're perfect for each other.
Happy Anniversary, honey buns!! xo
