Five Years of Marriage

I have started this post about six different times and have deleted them all. For some reason I'm struggling to write about my fifth wedding anniversary [tomorrow]. It's hard to believe it's already been five years and honestly it's feels like we have been together so much longer (it's been just about seven years total). I just have a hard time remembering what life was like before him. It's a clique but it's true.

So I'm sitting here trying to figure out what to say after 1825 days of marriage. And truthfully I have no idea what to say. Here on the blog I have always been fairly guarded about our marriage. I believe in keeping our relationship off social media. I have never wanted to pretend that we have the prefect marriage. We fight. We get angry at each other but every time we go to bed together. We might be completely pissed at each other but we go to bed together and let cooler heads prevail in the morning. We don't see eye-to-eye on everything. We have been through heartbreaks.

But each of those moments we take as a moment to grow stronger together - a moment to learn something about each other.

1825 days of marriage has taught me how hard it is. Marriage is stupid hard and everyday we have to work at it. There are days that being together is just easy and natural, and there are days when I literally want to kick him until he's fallen out of bed. But at the end of the day, he's mine. He's my partner in everything. He's my cheerleader. He's my shoulder to lean on. He's my best friend.

I feel lucky every single day because I get to wake up next to him every morning and he's the last thing I see when I fall asleep every night. I get someone who gets me. I get to spend my time with someone who is just as wacky which can result in some crazy conversations (check out the tag for Every Day Conversations if you want to have a sample of some). I have someone who will watch bad movies with me while playing Marine Monopoly eating Reese's.

I guess the short of it is that I found my other half. It's been five years - 1825 days - and I still feel like the luckiest girl in the world.

"Sometimes I hate every single stupid word you say
Sometimes I wanna slap you in your whole face
There's no one quite like you
You push all my buttons down
I know life would suck without you."

xo, B
