Today is my husband Chad and my 8th wedding anniversary! I remember my wedding day fondly, I couldn't wait to marry Chad! I loved my wedding, and I enjoyed planning it! I am thankful for my marriage. I love married life, some days I am sure you know it's not easy but having a partner someone you can build a life with and a family is the best. Chad is the perfect person for me, he understands me and balances me out. I love being with him.
I love hearing and reading people's stories of how they met and fell in love so I will share a bit of our story. Chad and I met when I was in my first year of university, I was 18, at a college and career event at our church. He pretty much was crazy about me right away and we were friends, we dated on and off and all that fun. I was a little nervous and not good at dating as Chad was my first boyfriend, my first kiss! A lot of people were surprised by us being together, as we are total opposites. Chad was quieter and shy while I was anything but! For us it worked, and still does!
I made Chad a card:
I used my new Hero Arts stamp set for this card and a sentiment from another, I love this sentiment!
Here are some photos from our wedding, they aren't the best quality as they were scanned:
Last night I went looking on my computer for these photos. As I looked I also went through many other photo's from our marriage. I saw pictures of us on our honeymoon, of trips, just us together all sorts! I also looked through photos of Ariel as a baby and saw us as we grew into a bigger family with the addition of Carter. I am truly blessed with my marriage these past 8 years and I look forward to even more. Chad I love you forever, and I would marry you again today. (Now wouldn't that be fun, I would love to buy another dress!)
I am excited as tonight my inlaws are taking the kids for the night! Chad and I are going on a date. We still haven't seen Eclipse (can't believe that!) so we are off to see that and than something else. I look forward to spending time with just him, and waking up on my own not to two kids! This is the first time in almost 2 years we have had the night to ourselves, I hope Carter does well!
