August 18th is here again! Just two years ago (already two years ago?!) Jake and I were a brand-new Mr. and Mrs., and here we are two years later expecting a new little one in just a short couple months who will transform us into a little family of three.
Last night we went out for dinner (after having a dinner party on Saturday I was absolutely in no mood to cook again!) and on the way back home we started talking about our anniversary and how quickly two years has seemed to go by. On one hand, it feels like just yesterday that we were wearing a wedding dress and tux and having the best day ever. On the other hand, that day feels like an entire lifetime ago.
Before we got married I was living with my parents, working at a different job and living in an entirely different city that meant at least an hour commute for when we wanted to see each other. He had roommates and a house with zero Eiffel Towers used as decorations. Although these two years have flown by, we both agreed that we couldn't even imagine going back and living those lives again!
A lot has happened in two years. Some good and some bad. We have shared laughter, tears, frustrations and celebrations. If these past two years is any indication, we are set up to have a pretty darn exciting rest of our lives!
And I, for one, cannot wait to experience it.
Thank you, Jake, for making me feel safe.
For loving me.
For being the most understanding and patient person ever while I have been dealing with all these pregnancy hormones and acting like a crazy person most days.
For agreeing to be the full-time vacuumer since it is my absolute least favorite chore.
For being my biggest supporter in my weight loss journey but continually reminding me that you love me for so many more important reasons than what my reflection in the mirror looks like.
For laughing at my jokes (even if you don't really get why they're funny.)
For teaching me.
For helping me.
For loving me.
Two years down, a lifetime to go :)
