Seven years! Being married to you has been my favorite adventure. I love this stage in our life. I’m grateful for our cozy home to come home to, with our two girls and fur baby. I know we are definitely in an exhausting, fun and sometimes crazy stage of life, from morning to evening with these little loves, but someday I believe we will miss this stage. The stages in our marriage have changed so much too. We know what marriage looked like prekids, then we went through the baby stages and now we have a marriage with toddlers in the mix. 🙂 Now that is an adventure everyday! HA! What I’m trying to say is that our marriage has had some amazing, romantic, fun, crazy, memorable times and I’m so thankful to do life with you. I read something the other day about seven years in a persons life and marriage, “Austrian philosopher and teacher Rudolf Steiner created a theory of human development based on seven-year cycles that were associated with astrology. According to his theories, humans experience changes physically and mentally every seven years. It makes some sense that if we experience large changes in personal growth, experience, knowledge and goals every seven years, that these changes will make a marriage less stable and increase the probability of divorce.” I thought to myself, well we have experienced a lot of change in seven years individually, BUT so has our marriage together. I know change is inevitable, but we have changed together. Together has been key to our relationship, changing together has been what I believe keeps us strong, connected and on this contained path in marriage that I believe gets stronger with change. THANK YOU Ivan for everything you’ve been these last seven years, even when I am angry, you teach me, you help me grow so I can change my life and be the best possible version of me. You’re truly my soulmate and I’m excited to experience more stages in our marriage and more adventure…. YES, please more adventure. 😉
Happy Anniversary my Love.
