I want to freeze time

I have almost been married to that hubby of mine for two years now and life with him couldn't be sweeter. We are loving this time in our lives. Everyone always asks what's next...Kids? New house? New car? But I am perfectly content right where I am with exactly what I have. I love our old house, I love our used cars with quirks and as much as I'd love to have kids someday I am truly enjoying this time with just hubby and me. Right now we are growing together. We are learning how to take care of our home and each other. We are learning how to cook, fix cars, balance checkbooks, landscape our yard and how to better serve God and we are doing it all together. I love that we are both teachers who desire to make an impact on the students we teach. I love that we go grocery shopping together and play video games on Fridays. I know it won't always be this way so I'm taking a blog snapshot to remember how much I am enjoying this time in our lives. It's amazing to live with your best friend and take on the world together.

Dear Hubby,
You are so good to me. Thank you for being patient with me when I've had a bad day. Thank you for telling me I'm beautiful even in sweatpants. Thank you for encouraging me to do my best. Thank you for loving our cats as much as I do. Thank you for doing the dishes when I decide to actually cook dinner. Thank you for packing my lunch every morning. Thank you for loving me, flaws and all.
Love, Allie

Awwww, love this post! Happy almost 2 years! We are so in the same place right now! We love our house and our little kids needed right now! Haha!

I'm glad you're appreciating the moment you have right now! Kids and a new house, and all those next steps, will be wonderful but you won't always play video games on Fridays, and have lazy Sundays. Glad you're making the most of it :)

(Boyfriend and I are still in pjs, drinking coffee and basking in the sunshine. I know this is fleeting.)
