Growing old together...

Saturday, my husband and I celebrated our 11th anniversary! There have been lots of bumps along the way, but I have to say that we compliment each other pretty well. He's strong and decisive, I'm soft and indecisive. He's confident and doesn't let anything get in his way. I'm very wishy-washy. But I see the good in everything. I think I help him see the positive side in things as well, while he keeps me strong and makes me more confident. We both love quietness. We are both home bodies. While we are very opposite in some ways, we are very alike in other ways. I will admit, it took us several years to see eye-to-eye. It just did. It wasn't perfect at the beginning. Marriage is tough. It's not easy. But we both had parents who stayed together and are still together after 40 years, who are great role models. I hope we can do the same for our children. XO
P.S. My 4 year old took this picture of us this weekend. Not the best angle (hello double chin!), but I'm glad we have a photo of us on our anniversary! :)

Secondly, wait to go with your double-chin comment, I seriously almost choked on my own saliva when I got to that part!!! Totally wouldn't have even noticed the lack of double-chin, but thanks for pointing it out, lol... it still does NOT exist!!

Our anniversary was last weekend and I desperately wanted a picture but it didn't happen. So hoping this week sometime - 'cause we always need pictures of the 2 of us - they're too rare.
Congrats on your anniversary! ;)
