84 14's

Today is kind of a special day. Nothing too exciting. Not the kind to be overly celebrated. No exchanges of gifts will be made. No special dinner plans for this evening. But nonetheless, it's a day each year the I will hold near and dear to my heart. It's the day I'll think back to that giddy 19-year-old version of myself and just smile. I'll remember how much I've grown and how much I've learned. More importantly, I'll remember how much WE'VE grown and learned. Because on November 14, 2006 JP and I were officially a couple. Now that we celebrate our wedding anniversary we don't do much for this day, but it is a great time to remember and reflect on how we've grown and how lucky we are.

November 2006 around the time we became "official"

On this day in 2008, JP got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. I was only 21. Some may say this is too young, but I don't care. Five years later I can still say that of all the life changing decisions I've made, this one was by far the best.

October 2010 {it's close to November!} Fredricksburg Weekend

November 2013 In the city where it all began

Here's to 84 {7 years * 12 months each year}14's and many, many, many more to come.

Do you have any special dates that you can't help but reflect on?
I truly believe that the more days you have to celebrate, the happier your life will be. So here's to the mini celebrations in life that make each day something special.

  1. I had to get her to marry me before I really started going bald :)

    Love you babe!

  2. Has it really been 7 years?! We are old.

  3. Awww you were such a baby but you just knew! How sweet!

  4. Aww! I met my husband when I was 19, too! We still celebrate the day we officially started dating - April 15. 2002, Tax Day! So we like celebrating tax day :) I agree with you, it's important to celebrate these dates and not forget about them!

  5. I absolutely adore the 2013 picture of you two.
