Today is the day

Today is Derek and my anniversary! We have totally been officially married for six years, wow.

Six years, people. SIX YEARS! Now, granted I'm sure of you are thinking, "Meh, six years, big whoop."

Well, poo-poo to you, because six years is pretty danged good. Now, granted, we're planning many thousands of eons more, but still, ya gotta start somewhere.

See, here we are starting...


Here we are, all, "Huh? We just got married? We're allowed to do WHAT NOW?"


Okay, okay, we were probably confused about something ELSE, but still. I think we've both had that look on our faces the majority of the last six years.

We definitely did when we did this:

and this:

and most recently this:

From April 2009

We have definitely had that look on our face when we've moved five times in six years (and in three weeks, it will be six.)

When we've rolled cars down a hill, changed jobs, graduated

We've been through lots and lots in our little tiny six years together. And we've acquired lots and lots, (not just children)

Two dearly loved, but foolish acquired kitties:

A piano, three cars, one scooter, large amounts of furniture, baby items, consumed bazillions of meals...

See? Six years is no cake walk. But you blink and it's been six years....

We're just living life.


See? There we go.

Derek is my favorite person. He's just very very very wonderful. He bats no eye when I say things like:
"I think we should move."
"I think we should have a baby."
"I think we should cloth diaper."
"I think we should stay and NOT move."
"I think we should have this baby at home."
"I think I should become a doula"

The list goes on. He is my biggest supporter. Derek lets me dream and then immediately tries to help make it a reality. He is kind and gentle and loving. He is a wonderful husband who will get me a cheeseburger whenever I want one. Derek is my best friend. He listens when I ramble on and on about childbirth and cervix dilation. He offers help to me when I am overwhelmed. He scoops me ice cream whenever I want it. Derek buys me vacuum cleaners and gets super excited about it. He happily cares for our children any moment day or night, when I slip off to help someone else. He encourages me and tells me I'm awesome. Derek is my partner, my co-pilot, my HUSBAND. He holds my hand, he kisses my lips.

Derek loves me. STILL! And I am so grateful.

What more could a girl possibly need?

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. You make me laugh at my computer almost every night. Although I suck at commenting, I always enjoy.

Happy Anniversary!

Yay Morgan! Congratulations! I remember your reception like it was yesterday. Man, those years sure go by quickly, don't they? I'm so glad you are still as happy as you were on your wedding day!

Congrats on the 6 years! So I am glad that some one else has a husband who would look 12 if he shaved his facial hair. Mindy and I were discussing that at the baptism the other night.

Ken and Jen said...

congrats! I love this, especially the pictures. Hope your day is awesome!

This would have been a beautiful sonnet of love...if only it weren't about my brother. Icky stuff!
Hope anniversary stuff is great!

Happy Anni Day! I remember the blossoming of your relationship and that first day I saw you holding hands and I was like, "What the...! She's WAY too good for him!" (J/K Derek, I love you man.) Have a fun day.

Happy anniversary! Great post. It really does go by so fast.

Derek said...

It has been six years and I do support my wife, but she does far more for me than I could ever describe. I am the reason we have moved so much and we have been poor students for way too long, but she has stuck with me and made life not just doable, but enjoyable. I look forward to every day with my family and most especially my wife because I am so blessed. Thanks all for your support of my family.

Boo Boo:
This post made me cry! I love you both and am so glad that you and Derek found each other. And don't forget, you'll probably move about 25 more times in your life. So keep the boxes.
