Today, Anson & I are celebrating our 14th anniversary! I really can’t believe that it has been so long! I spent a large portion of my day looking through old pictures and searching for just the right one to post on Instagram and Facebook. I came across so many pictures that brought back so many memories, so I decided to share some of them with you! From our wedding, to going on a cruise for our 5th anniversary, summers at the cottage, our trip to England & Malta, visiting Yankee Stadium before they built a new one, many trips to Buffalo for shopping and hockey games, going to Nationals Park in Washington DC, moving to Malta, getting to go to the US Marine Corps Ball in Malta, spending our 10th anniversary in Spain, Anson running the last 5k of the Gozo half with me literally pulling me along, then moving back to Canada again–we have had a lot of good moments together! I joked to one of my friends that I was going to caption my IG picture with, “Guys! I didn’t kill him this year!” Truth is, marriage isn’t always easy and we tend to take pictures during our best moments because no one wants to stop during a fight to quickly take an angry selfie! But, between all the happy, picture worthy moments are the moments that really define us. Every time I hear someone ask what the secret to marriage is I automatically answer (in my head) that it’s going into the relationship assuming you’re not quitting; you’re not giving in and you’re going to make this thing work! So, even though Anson still slaps me in the butt when he knows I HATE it and loses his wallet almost every single day–he is worth it! Happy 14th, Babe! I love you!
