7 years and no itch in sight

standard May 12, 2009 3 responses

“I love how much you love him.” The Facebook message read and I thought, well duh, what’s there not to love? I married the perfect man for me. He loves me. Wait. It’s more than that. He knows me, understands me, and he still loves me.

He makes me laugh, he makes me feel good about myself, and he makes me feel needed.

He believes in me.

He knows how to orchestrate the best Mother’s Day ever.

He gets better looking every day.

He’s the best dad in the world.

He’s the best husband I could have ever asked for.

So, yes, even though he sometimes snores and tonight when I told him that this summer we’d be celebrating our seventh anniversary his response was “That’s disgusting,” I do love him in that sick annoying way newlyweds love each other. And I don’t see that ending any time soon.

  • Congratulations! What a sweet post.

    You got me thinking. In two weeks, my husband and I will have been married for 17 years, and it will be 21.5 years since we started dating– over half our lives!

    I can’t decide if that is impressive or scary :-).

    We’re not quite so mushy-lovey any more, but still discovering new things together.

  • awww Congrats! We hit 16 yrs last Feb. Things change, but fortunately, I’ve found that we’re both improving with age, so our life together is, too. Mine, too is cuter, sweeter, stronger, smarter, funnier … and pickier/naggier … than ever. He lets me ignore him for days while I write and cruise sites (exc he’s not too thrilled with Twitter). He even understands that if Gerard Butler were to come to town, I’d have to disappear for a few days. Isn’t it great to know that you’ve married your soulmate?

  • That is really wonderful – happy big 7 anniversary! You are a lovely couple with lovely kiddos.

    We are coming up on 8 this year – seems insane to think that much time has passed!
