Seven Year Itch

Seven years ago today, Boyfriend and I officially got hitched.
 
Though it was the day we were committed according to that special piece of paper, in our hearts we had been just loyal to each other on that day as we had two weeks in.  Honestly nothing in our hearts or minds changed just because we said our vows in front of nearly 200 people.  
 
Well...I will admit after our first big fight, I did think to myself, "Oh my goodness-I really am stuck with him for the rest of my life!"  But just a few moments later, he made me laugh and I became grateful he is the person I am stuck with for the rest of my life.
 


 
According to Wikipedia, the Seven Year Itch is a psychological term that suggests that happiness in a relationship declines and divorce rates shows a trend occurring seven years in.  It might be because we married so young but I can honestly say we are so much happier now seven years in than we were back then (which wasn't exactly emo filled days then either).
 

 
I adore my husband and the family we created.  Seven years ago I honestly wouldn't have predicted that my life would look like it does now, just like I can't really imagine where we will be seven years from now.  Life has brought so many unexpected twists and turns but having Boyfriend as my partner has only provided expectation-that no matter where life brings us, we are in it together.
