Well, today is Jeremiah and my 6 year wedding anniversary. And I can honestly say, I would not do one thing differently. I love our life! 🙂
Like most people, today we reminisce about our wedding day, the last 6 years, and look forward to what the next 6+ years will hold for us. We will also work on fixing Jeremiah’s car, attend church, 2 birthday parties, and keep 2 children from tearing each other apart. 😉
I will never forget our wedding day. I woke up so stinking early and I could not sleep. I was simply so excited. Most of us girls were staying at my parent’s house, so I woke up by myself and went out on their deck. It was a beautiful morning and I remember saying a prayer to God that he would bless our wedding day and our marriage. I also thanked him for bringing me such an awesome person to marry. Then I returned inside and shortly after started getting hair and makeup done–yes we started at 6am!!!
The rest of the day was simply amazing.
Last night J and I went out to celebrate our 6 years together. Earlier in the day we did what all parents do. We called ‘nana and papa’ to see if their babysitting center was open for the evening. Luckily, it was, and they were happy to have the kiddos for a few hours. *Shoutout to ‘nana and papa Schulz’ – I’m not sure what we would do without them. They are always so willing to help us out with the kids, whether that be babysitting, chauferring, or anything else. THANK YOU so much!* We dropped off the kids and procedded on with our very romantic date, with our first stop at Auto Zone. Yes, yes, I know. What a patient wife am I ! 😉 Jeremiah had to pick up some parts that he had on hold, and a 10 min stop turned into a 25 minute stop. Ugh!
After that fiasco, we hopped over to the Symposium Cafe where we treated ourselves to drinks, dinner, and dessert. (They have the best and most delicious cakes there!) Keeping with our very romantic theme, we then headed over to Books-A-Million where we perused the books together for almost an hour (one of our favorite things to do!). And you can’t have a very romantic date in the QC without ending it at Whitey’s ice cream.
Well, our dates aren’t always the most typical ‘romantic’ anymore, but we sure do enjoy having a few hours to ourselves, no matter if it’s spent at Auto Zone or some cute restaurant.
6 years has taken us through many things together. Change of jobs, moving, graduating school, having 2 amazing children, numerous home improvement projects, several road races, several road trips, etc etc. We also dated for 6 1/2 years prior to getting married and had many awesome trips, experiences, and adventures together. I can only hope and pray that God continues to bless us in the best ways possible 🙂
And yes, he still sings to me, just like this with his lovely tenor voice 🙂
6 years and going strong!
