Wednesday we celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary. I love being able to celebrate this at the beginning of a new year. We started the evening off with some dance lessons Rob surprised me with for Christmas (yeah, he's a keeper). We enjoyed some delicious Italian food and then hit the theatre to enjoy a very emotional "Blind Side". Let's just say I came out with mascara smudges all over my cheeks. When we returned home we watched this very interesting documentary on happiness. I highly recommend it.
As Rob and I lay in bed that night we started talking about our past years together. We laughed at how naive we were in the beginning. How much everything changed once we had Nolan but how we couldn't imagine our lives without him. How different our lives are compared to what we had always planned. As we both lay quiet Rob said, "But ya know, even though this last year has sucked, it has definitely been my favorite." And I couldn't agree more.
There's no one else I would want holding my hand as we shop for groceries or pinching my bum as he swears "no one saw" or comforting me at night when everything seems to overwhelming or winking at me just because he knows it's my favorite. And there's definitely no one else I would want to enjoy another "sucky" year with.
Rob, I love you. You are mine and I am yours...forever. Happy Anniversary, Darling.
