Rewind Wednesday (a day late)

I'm traveling for work this week, and if you have been reading this blog for long, you know my theory is that if I have to be away from my family, I'll make it count, so I've been working non-stop, and sort of skipped Wednesday entirely.  But here I am, rewinding, with a couple pictures from a trip B and I took back in November (or Movember, if you will).  

On Monday, B and I celebrated 7 years of marriage.  Seven.  And, if I'm being honest, this year was, by far, the hardest of them all.  If there ever was a year I had my doubts about "making" it to our anniversary, it was this one.  We've had our challenges big and small, most of which just don't belong on my blog, for all the interwebs to read. 

But here's the deal.  We are working on it.  Working on us.  Working on making 7 into 8 into 9 into 10 into 50.  One day at a time. 

So, with that I say this:  Here's to 7.  Here's to marriage.  Here's to admitting when its hard, but committing to making it through the hard.  Here's to admitting that marriage is hard work, and committing to actually doing the work it takes.  Here's to hopefully, hopefully, being models of love and light for our children a little more. 

Here's to all of that. 

Here's to him.  

(Here's to Movember only coming once a year too!)
