Well this week I am going to acknowledge a bit of a milestone for myself and Mr. Smith. We have officially been together for nine whole years as of Monday. We have experienced a few things together; college, marriage, building a house, building the Mazda, beginning careers and starting new ones with all kinds of fun times and hick-ups in between. I don't want to sound like that Facebook wife who is just soooo in love with her husband, but I do think some bragging rights should be tossed his way. In case you haven't figured it out I can be an emotional hot mess, you know changing careers....quarter life crisis and all.....and that is only this year;) Mr. Smith is usually pretty supportive of the decisions I make. He is also the first one to question them, to ensure I am making such decisions with a clearer perspective.
I have found a few photos to have a look back..........there are many more, but I will save you from that and post only a few.
So, why nine years? Why B, are you talking about nine and not waiting til ten? Because, I believe every year should be acknowledged, and we should look back so we can appreciate what is to come. I am so grateful for the friends and family that have been with us through the past nine. I really feel that we have surrounded ourselves with great people!!!!!
So, Mr. Smith, here is a cheers to the past nine, and to surviving the next one!!!! I know it will not always be easy, but I am sure it will be fun!!!!!
