7 years. He still whispers inappropriate things in my ear, he still makes me feel as beautiful as I felt that day, he still makes me laugh (often against my better judgment), he still works incredibly hard for our family, he still puts up with my mess and my ability to cry at the drop of a hat and he still puts us first.
He's learning to just smile for the camera because the selfies are gonna happen anyway, he's learning that I will always be a memory maker before a cleaner, he's learning that my tears are just because I care, he's learning that I will always try to make him laugh when he's cross because it's an awkward thing I do that sometimes works, he's learning to just go along with at least half of my hare-brained schemes and he's learning that it's ok to change.
I'm learning to try and be on time because it makes his face twitch when I'm not. Im learning that because he is male, he expresses things differently to me at times. I'm learning that sometimes his logic is worth listening to and I'm learning that sometimes the little things can say the most.
We are better together. When we are at our worst - we are getting better at rising from that. When we are at our best - we are unstoppable. We have created a family that loves and cares and we strive every day to work hard at that.
Seven years ago I married this great guy. I loved him then and I love him now. Bring on the next seven.
