7 Years

Seven years ago I donned a white gown and walked down the aisle at St. Luke's Chapel (on the Medical University of South Carolina's campus) and married The Man.  


I was twenty one years old and I had no idea of where this one act would take me.  I just knew I was in love and I wanted to spend the rest of my life with The Man.  Looking back now, I wouldn't change a thing.  

So on my anniversary here is a list of things my marriage has had in store for me.  Starting from the beginning-
 - One big fat huge wedding.
-  One night at the Folly Beach Holiday Inn (where every room has a beach front view)
-  One honeymoon to the Bahamas
-  One military enlistment.
-  One transcontinental flight
-  Two beautiful children
-  Three states to be lived in (SC, TX, MO)
-  Two countries to be lived in (USA, UK)
-  10,000 disagreements
-  10,000 make ups
-  500,000 inside jokes
-  1,000,0000 laughs
and more love than I could even try to quantify.  

Happy Anniversary to The Man.  May the next seven years have just as many laughs, inside jokes and love.  I love you (even if sometimes I am a pain in the ass and don't show it).
