It was 7 years ago today I went out on a date with a guy who followed none of the rules and quoted Dane Cook. I can't believe that was my LAST first date. Our first date was a kind of marathon. We started off apple picking, followed it up with dinner and drinks and finished it off by drinking coffee and closing up cafe. As I type it I almost can't believe that it has been that long but at the same time it feels like it has been forever. Our seven years have been filled with many ups and downs as well. In honor of the last seven years I'd like to share just a few of my favorite moments.

Our first vacation to Disney World together. He really got to see my true colors on the flight considering I didn't tell him how deathly afraid of flying I was. We had such a wonderful time together. I can't wait for Jack to get a little over so we can't return as a family. 

The day we purchased our first home. I can remember the nervous excitement that we both felt. After dating only 9 months we questioned ourselves as to if it were the right decision. We are still here 6 years later. We have made this little house our home. 

The day Brian proposed! During our regular Sunday morning softball game Brian seemed so off. When we went apple picking later that day he was even weirder and I was getting a strange vibe. That was until he asked me to join him under a tree and followed it up by a "Will you marry me?"
Every year since our first date we visit the same orchard and the very same tree. 

The day we were married. The day we both vowed to love and honor one another. One of our happiest days. It strange that people always talk about their wedding and their favorite moments. I must say that sharing the happiest day with all the people we hold dear was my most favorite part! 

Brian's journey to fatherhood In his own special way he was excited. I know that part of him was frightened after our first 2 losses but equally as excited. I just loved the moments when he first started touching my growing belly and talking to baby. 

This moment- our first night home from the hospital. We didn't get much time together with our new baby in the hospital so on our first night home and seeing this moment between father and son couldn't be more special to me. 

Watching Brian become a daddy. Being a wife isn't always easy and being a mom is harder than I ever thought. Brian is finding his way as a dad and he's doing a great job. He never gets worked up or stressed out. I love watching him teach Jack new things and look forward to all the moments still waiting for us. 

Cheers to 7 years and many more.
