Second Anniversary

I know I already posted a books post today, but it felt weird combining book reviews with an anniversary post, so I decided to be a rebel and post twice today! #livingontheedge

Today is MG's and my 2nd anniversary! I can't believe how quickly 2 years has gone by!
Obviously life has thrown us some curve balls and challenges between trying to get pregnant, dealing with my dad being sick, and eventually passing. But through all of that, as tough as it's all been, I've been SO incredibly grateful to have MG by my side. I knew it before that I loved him, and that he was 100% my soul mate, but sometimes it takes tragedies and heart breaking events to show you that you love someone even more than you thought you could. I wouldn't have been able to get through these past few months without MG's love, support, and hugs.

And even though he's overseas right now for a work trip on our actual anniversary (I'll be seeing him in a couple days thankfully), it makes me realize even more just how much I love being around him. I miss the day-to-day things and being able to say good morning and kiss good night. That's where I find the true joy. Trips and exotic, expensive things are great, but being able to sit on the couch together, or run errands together and have a good time are the moments that I love most about our lives.
I'm so glad that I responded to the message on Match.com from a guy I thought was pretty cute. My world hasn't been the same since :)
Here's hoping that year 3 is the magical one for us for growing our family and just good news in general--we could use some of that. And even if it comes with more bumps along the road, I know that if we're together, we'll weather them just fine, and come out stronger on the other side.
I love you, MG, with my whole heart, for my whole life and forever after.
