6 Years? Already?

Happy Anniversary to my amazing husband, Tim!  6 years ago on this day, I married my best friend.  That meant I had to live with a boy! (shoutout to Monica from Friends).  It’s been quite a journey, and believe me when I say we’ve hit many.many bumps along the road, from tiny ones to ones requiring bulldozers.  But we’ve survived.

If there’s anything I’ve learned, it’s the importance of communication, and we sure have learned to communicate on a whole new level over the years.  It’s not just about words.  Learning to decipher each other’s body language, facial expression, tone of voice… did not come easy and not without our own mini “world wars,” as we like to call them.  However, over time, we got better at it.  It just takes practice and constant commitment from both ends.  Now we’re somewhat proficient at the face-to-face and shoulder-to-shoulder methods of communication.  Tim has learned to look me in the eye and talk for hours on end (still challenging but getting much better…can I generalize and say that guys’ attention spans don’t seem as long as ours?), and I’ve learned all there is to know about basketball and football from endless hours of sitting next to him and staring at the TV screen.

We’re not perfect, and we never will be as only God is perfect.  However, together, we strive to be more like Jesus.

6 years…whew!  Time sure flies by.  I’m also glad that we picked an easy date to remember or else I’m sure I’d forget sometimes (I did forget on several occasions the year that we got married), seeing how crazy and fast-paced life gets as we age.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t remember time passing by this quickly in my youth.

Snapshots from our honeymoon. Now that was paradise!

I feel so fortunate to have married such a Godly man who loves, respects, appreciates, and honors me.  We grow stronger and closer with each year.  We are two peas in a pod..oh wait, scratch that.  Three peas…sorry, Kones buddy.

Don’t be mad.  We didn’t forget about you..

Now I wonder what surprise Tim has up his sleeve ;)!  Tim’s really generous with his gifts.  Yay me!  I actually didn’t even know about the anniversary gifts by year until he told me.  So sentimental, this guy is.  I’d have to say my favorite was the 3rd year.  A leather purse?  Now you’re speaking my language!! 😉  This year is candy/iron.  I do love me some Werther’s or peach gummy rings….iron?  Hmm… now that’s a thinker.  Anyway, it’s not about the presents, right ;)?  Now, we’re off to church and then we plan on spending a lazy Sunday together.  We’re the happiest in our PJs!

In case you wanna learn about how we met, you can read all about it here ;).
