Marriage - 6 years in

Yesterday was my sixth wedding anniversary.  After six years of dating and six years of marriage, lots of moving around, a three year old and a little one on the way, I will say that things are not the same that they were 12, 10, even 5 years ago.  Here are some things I've realized in the short time I've been married:

* A regular date night consists of kid free movie watching on the couch after the kids' bedtimes. 

* Romance is letting the other sleep in

* Love is not mentioning the 20lbs we've both gained since our wedding day

* Know which fights are worth your while and which are not

* A "night out" usually ends around 10pm, by choice

* "Getting to know each other" usually means asking what the next week's schedule looks like, how much money is in the budget, or what suggestions there are for dinner

Our life may seem mundane compared to what it was a few years ago, but I wouldn't trade it for the alternative.  I love knowing him better than anyone, having our future together to look forward to, raising our child(ren) together, and growing together. 

So here's to as many more years as God allows us together!
