Six years of growth.

It's been a crazy wonderful 6 years. I feel like this is where I should say, "I can't believe it's already been six years.", but in all honesty it feels like 6 years.

We've had our ups and downs. We went through a phase where we hardly saw each other, he was working and going to school full-time and I was working two jobs, all day long- every single day. It pulled us apart. It was also where we learned to make time for each other, and the importance of the little things, little notes to let the other know you've been thinking of them, taking a few minutes to clean something. Seriously it came down to the little things for the first couple years.






Then it was a run with infertility, and the struggle I felt knowing it was my fault, and the weight that put on his shoulders knowing there wasn't anything he could do. The struggle of us not turning to each other when things got tough. That is where we learned to sit down and talk. No matter how hard it was, things needed to be said, to be listened to.



There was drama with the in-laws. Again trying to tear us apart. This is where I had to learn to let things be, to accept that some might not see things the same way. Where he learned that his place was besides me, we needed to support and defend each other.



Then the run with secondary infertility, thankfully a shorter journey which brought us even closer together. This time around we shared our feelings no matter how ugly they were. We stood together even stronger and faced plenty together.




We've grown as a couple, the fighting or disagreements are still there but are so very far and few between. Our arms are full with our sweet girls, but we still make time to enjoy just us. Usually late at night when the girls are finally sleeping, we'll snuggle up to watch a show and usually end up falling asleep, but feel that we've spent time together.


Things aren't perfect, but that's life. Things are perfect for us. We're so very happy. Happier than we were Aug 16th,  6 years ago. Our life together is more intertwined, fuller and brighter than I could have ever imagined it being.





Happy Anniversary Love!
