What to say about being married almost ten years? Well, mostly I feel old.
We are becoming that old married couple, who buys each other things like houses & cars & groceries, so the need for an anniversary present really isn’t that necessary.
We spend our anniversary dinner at the local Cheddars, run to Hobby Lobby for crafts for the kids and then by Publix to pick up a few things on the way home, all of this happening before 9 pm on a Tuesday night. The kids are running around like wild monkeys and our babysitters, aka Nan & Paps, ask what we’re doing home so soon.
You know, old married couple stuff is what life looks like 9 years later. I’m pretty happy living this ordinary life, with this guy by my side, going through life’s milestones together.
Next year though? We’re going to celebrate big. I’m thinking a trip to somewhere we’ve never been before, just me & him. Lazy mornings, 3 uninterrupted meals each day, sightseeing and shopping, and coming home to three wild monkeys after a goooooood trip together.
9 years later and we can still take a pretty good wedding day pose picture…
