Get ready for a post full of pictures. I don’t know why but this morning I decided to log into some old photobucket accounts. We have 2 full accounts that we used before we decided to upgrade to flickr pro. I feel like those 2 photobucket accounts hold the treasures from the last 4 years of our life. I started looking thru them page by page. I love looking thru old photos. I don’t know why but this morning I couldn’t stop. I was getting so nostalgic about everything. We really have done a lot over the last 4 years of being married. Looking back to you don’t remember the hard or tough times, you just see the joy and happiness- there was so much. We have really had an amazing life together so far. Kev is truly my best friend. I can not imagine going thru this life with out him. We have really shared so many memories together. I guess maybe when you are about to go thru a major life change you get all sentimental about things. Thats how I am feeling today.
Since we started dating we have always had a little motto that was “talk is cheap.” We have always been the couple that hasn’t let things get in the way of going on adventure. I love that about us. I feel sad for people who just let life pass them by because things might be difficult or wait around for everything to be planned out to a T. Fact is, nothing will ever be planned out perfect, you might as well just get up and go try. I get really discouraged when people say things to me like “when you have a baby things will be different.” Yes, I agree things are going to be different. I do understand that but I am not going to let people burst my bubble either. I am excited for her to come and to join in on these adventures with us. I believe that you can make things work and that is what we are going to do. So, although I am feeling all sentimental about the past 4 years, it makes me even more excited about the next 4, the next 10, the next 20. Can you imagine all the adventures we will have gone on then?
I feel extremely blessed to have Kev as my husband. When I was looking at these pictures this morning my heart was full. We keep joking about how old we are lately. It’s like all of a sudden it started to hit us that we are a lot older than we think we are (not a bad thing of course) but if I close my eyes and think of the two of us. This is the picture that I see…
Wind blown hair, sun kissed skin, Sweatshirts, smiles, some sort of inside joke being laughed at and ready for anything. Usually it would be some very late night drive home from somewhere that we just had to go to that day. The windows are down in the car, the music is up real loud, I am curled up on the passenger seat of the Element and we are holding hands. It is a very vivid image. It has happened just like that on so many different occasions. No matter what age we are, I think that will always be my image of us when I close my eyes. Maybe now, it will include a little munchkin in the backseat, sound asleep from a day of fun with mommy and daddy?
I love our life.
Remember to enjoy the small things, to roll with the punches and to go out and live life!
