8 years and counting…

February.11.2011 | Misc, My Life

We said we’d stop celebrating our “dating” anniversaries once we got married but it’s been nearly 6 years since our wedding day and we have not missed a “dating” anniversary since :-)  What can I say…we are hopeless romantics…at least in the anniversary department!  I seriously can’t believe Doug and I have known each other for 8 years…so crazy!  Knowing that we’ve come this far and I still absolutely adore him, still think he has the sweetest “puppy dog” eyes, and still laugh at his dorky jokes…gives me so much hope and excitement for the future :-)  It can only get better from here…

Today, I’m going to pick up Doug from work and head on over to Disneyland and put our annual passes we got for Christmas to good use :-)  Well share a corn dog (I have not had one yet but hear they are the bomb!) and toast with our churros (no sharing…I want my own) to 8 years of love, laughter, a littler bickering, but mostly loving :-)

A random self-portrait Doug took of us…I don’t know why but I love this pic!  Have a great weekend everyone!

FRECKLES CHICK: Awww, happy anniversary you two!! It's important to celebrate the anniversaries that got you to wher you are today, you know? You guys look adorable (love that ruffly top. on you, not doug, HA!). February 14, 2011 6:44 pm

Tori: I've been stalking your blog for years but never been brave enough to comment, but as much as always LOVE your photos and feel I should comment on them, I thought I'd comment on this one instead! My husband and I thought we should stop celebrating our dating anniversary when we got married too, but I can't bring myself to and almost like it more in a weird way, and we are also 11th Feb :) Happy anniversary! And your photos are a massive inspiration to me too :) February 14, 2011 1:02 am

Jasmine*: LOVE IT!! :) February 11, 2011 7:49 pm

Brooke: Sometimes the random pictures that aren't perfect, where you don't look perfect and everything isn't just SO, are the best ones. :) February 11, 2011 1:56 pm

Chung Nguyen: That is just an adorable picture - grains and all. Congratulations, you two! February 11, 2011 1:08 pm
