On Saturday we will be celebrating 6 years of marriage. I wanted to post this early as I won't be around much the next few days.
17 years ago I met a goofy kid in my history class...I never would have thought that 11 years later I would marry that same goofy kid.
We had a very unorthodox relationship from the beginning, we did not live in the same place and we only dated for 2 months before getting married. Regardless of this fact I do not regret this decision at all.
Our relationship has been tested in many different ways but despite everything we have come out stronger than ever. I am so thankful that I made that choice 6 years ago. He is the love of my life and I truly do not know what I would do without him, he completes me in every way.
We have been through 2 deployments, countless field exercises, 3 (soon to be 4) moves, 5 homes, and anything else the army wants to throw at us. Being married is a challenge in itself but when you add the military it is a whole new ball game.
I am so lucky to be married to a man who is kind, compassionate, infuriating, loving, smart, sarcastic, funny, hardworking and overall just a great man. It has been a wonderful and challenging 6 years but I couldn't imagine living this life with anyone else. No marriage is perfect and ours is far from it but at the end of the day I am married to the person that is perfect for me even when he frustrates me. :)
Happy Anniversary, Kyle! I love you more than you know.
