I love celebrating, no matter what the occasion. I love holidays and parties and get togethers. Today we are celebrating 8 years of being married. It has been an incredible 8 years. In 8 years we have had 5 amazing kids, moved 7 times, bought and sold a house, bought and sold a few cars, started and lost a job, started and finished podiatry school and now here we are in Missouri in a residency program. I am so happy that through it all Aaron has been by my side. He is an amazing companion. I love him more today than I did 8 years ago. Someone at church yesterday said something about not being able to choose our parents or grandparents or siblings or even our children- they are sent to us or we are sent to them, but we choose our spouse. That is one person that we have a say in adding to our family and our association. I am so happy that I chose Aaron and that he chose me. I love the life we have made for ourselves and our children. So today, let's celebrate!
That was then . . .
