5 Years on Friday

Happy Friday, friends! It's been a bit since I've posted on a Friday but this one's pretty special since it's MG's and my 5 year anniversary today. 
I'm so thankful for finding this man. It may have been later than the timeline that I had in my head, but looking back on it, it was perfect timing for us.
We've gone through a lot together. Loss of my dad, infertility, a miscarriage. Although those aren't the things that highlight a marriage, how we've navigated these times and made it out on the other side makes me proud of us as a couple. I know I can rely on him when times get tough, not just on the good days.
He's such a great dad that I've fallen in love with a different side of him than I did when we first got together. My mom has commented how hands on he is. Ella loves her daddy, and I love that his love for her is so obvious.
One of the biggest things that I love about us is that we can laugh and our communication.  We're goofy and stupid on a daily basis.  Even when things are stressful, we try and talk about it so that it doesn't overwhelm or become bigger than us. Does that mean every day is sunshine and roses? Um, no. Especially since becoming parents--it adds another level of stress to your relationship. But we're figuring it out together.

I've loved our last 5 years together. Sometimes it feels like it's been so much longer and other times I can't believe how quickly time has flown by. Who those kids were back in 2011 who met and started dating...

But I'm excited for what adventures the next 5, 10, 50 years will bring, and I'm thankful to be doing life with this guy.
Cheers to 5 years!
