5 Years ago today

I married my best friend. The love of my life.

Pace and I have been through some tough shit in the last 5 years. I won't go into great detail here, but we have really been through a lot. In fact I think we have been through more in our first 5 years of marriage than most have been.

We have survived.

In fact we have more than survived, we have thrived. We are closer today than we have ever been. I love my husband deeply, passionately and unconditionally. He accepts me for who I am faults and all. He loves me even though I leave my shoes all over the living room, he loves me even though I am not the tidiest person in the world, he loves me even though I can sometimes be moody and annoyed, he loves me when I am hyper, he loves me when I am depressed.

I have told Pace before, but back when I was in college and was in a really shitty relationship, I thought long and hard about the type of man I want to spend the rest of my life with. Pace fits that description to a "t". He is everything I have wanted and looked for in a man and then some. Of course our marriage isn't perfect. We have both made mistakes, we have both hurt one another, but we have forgiven one anohter, we love each other more every day, we genuinely care for each other and want to see each other thrive.

I love you Pace. I adore you. I thank God for you everyday. I can't imagine going through and getting through everything we have been through with anyone else.

Happy Anniversary Bestie!

Happy 5th Anniversary! My husband and I had been through some rough times (life-wise, not relationship-wise) and on our 5th anniversary I interviewed for and got a new job. It was really a turning point and things have been (mostly) great since! I hope the same is true for you two and your family plans!!

Happy 5th anniversary! DH and I will celebrate our 5th anniversary in October. I understand what you mean about having a tough time, we have been through so much during the 4.5yrs that we have been married, it would probably destroy us if we didn't love and care for each other so deeply.

I wish you and your husband all the happiness for the next 5 xo
