4 Years Ago Today

4 years ago today Ed and I were married. Happy anniversary to us!

Can I just say I loved our wedding. It was so "us." We didn't spend an outrageous amount of money. We didn't have tons of people we barely knew attend. We didn't go overboard trying to impress the guests with our catering budget. We simply invited them to celebrate with us as we were joined together as man and wife.

I had such a blast that day that I tell Ed often that we should have a wedding every year. He just rolls his eyes and laughs. He's not much for being the center of attention though.

I used to dream about taking cruises on our anniversary and being showered with diamonds and roses. Who DOESN'T dream about that, right?

Of course, life happened and our anniversaries have not been at all as I had imagined.

Ed was about 900 miles away for National Guard Training for our first anniversary and on our second anniversary we were preparing to move to FL -- he was already in FL. Our third anniversary was spent in FL with me pregnant and him stressed out from school. We spent today with his sister and her family.

Ed even forgot to mention our anniversary on our second year. Yeah, he'll NEVER do THAT again! HA!

While those silly little romantic dreams have not ever happened, I can honestly say that I would not change one thing about our marriage. We have something that runs much deeper than diamonds and roses.

Ed is my best friend. He's who I turn to when I need a shoulder to cry on. He's the first one I tell when something AWESOME happens. We cling to each other when times are tough. Ed doesn't care if my hair is a mess or if my clothes are wrinkled (that's a good thing). He loves me for me.

I have to say that I am the luckiest woman alive. Afterall, I've been blessed with TWO Eds, not jsut one.
