Today is the eighth anniversary of the day that I made the best choice of my life. The day that a lot of hard work and a little craziness paid off so we could start our brand new lives together. Little did we know it was just the tip of the hard work and craziness iceberg. (And I realize that after 8 years, we've still hardly scratched the surface.)
Regardless of the craziness and challenge of life, most days (during this season of life) I feel pure joy at the fact that I get to wake up next to Erick. Well, maybe I should use a different example, because waking up in general is hardly a joyous occasion for me. You get the point... I feel more full of life and energy knowing that I have him to share it all with and yammer on to about it. This all sounds sappy, but the strangest part is that it's true. I get as excited as Sophia when he comes home, and not just because he can give me a little relief. Just because I love to be around him!
This is a great song about a love that is all joy and memories being created right in that moment. That's how I feel about our love. We have lots of silly, sad and glorious memories, but I'm usually too busy creating more to stop and think about them. Happy Anniversary, Honey!
