Happy anniversary

Do you ever think about things and how long you have been doing something, or how long something has been? Today marks my husband and I's 9th anniversary. Yep, nine whole years. That is crazy! Now, in one sense it feels like we have been together forever and I can't imagine life without him and I almost feel like I can't remember what it was like to not be with him. On the other hand, it seems like only a year ago that we bought a house and only a couple of year since we met.... it is quite funny. 

I just wanted to slide in between these Christmas themed blogmas posts and give you a little bit of a soppy post dedicated to my husband and just to tell you that I love him really... The past nine years have been a whirlwind and I can't imagine how much more we will face over the next few years and how much things will change in years to come. If you had told me this time nine years ago that the two of us at sixteen, barely knowing each other at the time, would fall head over heels in love, get engaged, buy a house, get married and be picturing a life together, I would have laughed. 

But I do remember, the night I met Grant, it was late September, at the first college party of the academic year, both having just started our first year. I remember the butterflies I got just looking at him, the unexplained feeling that, somehow, I knew I wanted to give things a shot, because I had never looked at a person and felt this way. Nine years on, I still love the little butterflies he gives me when I see him. 

If you had told me when I was 16 that I would meet someone I love as much as I love Grant, and I would end up marrying him, buying a home together and looking forward to the future after spending almost a decade together I would have laughed. I never imagined I would still be with a person i met at 16 and love him just as much, if not more. I wouldn't change him for the world! (Back to Christmas tomorrow, I promise)
