12 Years

^^ Not a picture from our wedding, but taken a little before. It's one of us I really like and still have up in our house. 

On Sunday Ian and I celebrated our 12 year wedding anniversary. It's weird how in a way, it doesn't seem like that long ago. But then I think of all the life we have packed into the past 12 years and it does seem like a while ago. I mean, we got married back when wedding pictures were taken on film!!! In the past 12 years, we graduated from college, moved 7 times, owned 9 cars, visited 7 countries, had two kids and consumed more coffee together than could even be counted. So basically, life hasn't been boring.

Also, in the last 12 years, our love has grown and changed. It's become deep and meaningful in a way I didn't understand 12 years ago. Ian truly is my rock. He is my other half. He is the person I lean on, the person I laugh with, the person I cry with. I can't imagine living life any other way than with him by my side.

We were able to sneak away for a night on our anniversary. We left the kids with my parents and stayed at a hotel on the beach. We ate dinner without interruption and talked about future dreams and aspirations. We sat on the balcony of our room and watched the sun set. We enjoyed a leisurely morning of breakfast outside while listening to the waves. We took a long walk. Then we packed up and headed back to reality. It was a nice little time away.
