Five Years of Dating Bliss

Pin It!

Mr. Gray-

Today marks five years that we've been together. Actually, if we're being honest, you asked me to be your girlfriend on April 20th, 2007, but when we realized that our anniversary would be 4/20, we switched it to 4/21. Yes, we switched it. I can't wait to spend the afternoon in Julian with you eating apple pie and finding a hiking trail.

I love that when we go out to eat you always give me your tomatoes and broccoli
 {it helps that you hate them). 
I love that at night you allow me to place my freezing cold feet between your warm legs. 
I love that I can be completely "me" when I'm with you. 
 You've never tried to change me,
and there is a sense of peace that comes from that kind of acceptance.
I love that you'll clean my glasses every time I hand them to you.
You're so good at making sure there aren't any smudges. 

I love the way you're made and the way your mind works.

I love you!

This is so sweet! I love it. Yesterday was the 6 year anniversary of my and Tim's first kiss. Yup on 4/20. We didn't start dating until a year and a half later. Haha.

P.S. I wish Tim would clean my glasses!

Aw happy anniversary! I love celebrating our "dativersary" as my hubby and I call it. We actually started dating on Friday the 13th of February in 2009 - I think it was a lucky Friday the 13th : )
