We made it to year 8!  Today's our anniversary!  I wanted to mark the day, as today will be a little more ordinary than that day eight years ago.

Instead of an updo and resplendant gown, I'm currently wearing a pre-baby bob, 2007 Gators BCS Championship tshirt, pink flowered pj pants, and house slippers. 

Instead of dancing to a jazz quartet, I'll be de-cruding the kitchen while Sesame Street and an I-phone entertains our children.

Instead of counting down the days, we looked at each other and said, "Oh, our anniversary is coming up.  We should do something."

To Alex's credit,  we are having an overnight date night in Atlanta and he even planned for a anniversary gift after the hissyfitting I exhibited a few Mother's Days ago.

Married life is messier and harder than I would have imagined on July 17, 2004.  But we have
all of this to celebrate...

Here's to us, then and now-- the life that's happened in between and the milestones left to reach together!
