7 years ago today, I thought I knew (but really I didn’t) about the wild ride of marriage, family, and life that I signed up for. It was a beautiful day, and has been a wonderful 7 years with this man.

I have learned a lot over the past 7 years some of which are:

- I don’t know everything

- My capacity to love is bigger than I thought

- family.is.everything.period!

- I wish I was as thin as I was when I thought I was fat

- I can do hard things, and have an amazing support system in my spouse (like go through school, the daily grind of having children, give birth naturally, start and maintain a business)

- the companionship in marriage is the best. I love it.

- Being romanced and wooed is wonderful, but being silly is better.

And much more. Happy Anniversary dearest Brantie!
