7th Year Anniversary! Lucky 7!

I have a thing for 7's. My lacrosse number was 17. I grew up in tow houses one on 17 Claremont and the other at 34 (3+4=7) Walworth. Our first house was at 1006 Queen Anne (1+6!). I am always looking for 7's. Well look no further because The Mr. and I are celebrating 7 years of marriage.

Hubby and I met at a 2 year olds birthday party. Neither of us should have been there. We didn't really know "Jake", I knew his parents a little. I had even just told my friends that I would probably never marry, and that that was okay (right). I met hubby, wearing an Lacoste shirt and khaki shorts, basically my fathers weekend uniform. I was drawn to him. He was funny. I was still not thinking he was my husband, just that he was so funny! He got all my jokes!



He asked me out, I said no. Then, a double date. I only said yes because I wanted a free meal! HA! Then when I showed up, I saw him at the bar waiting for me. He was so happy to see me. So genuinely happy to see me! I said, under my breath, I'm gonna marry this guy. Guess what? I did.

Three weeks later he moved in, six months later we were engaged and a year later we were married in Malibu. Lucky? I think yes.

I love you babe. We made it to seven years and we'll make it to twenty-seven. It' s you and me against the world. You and me and the most gorgeous kids in the world. We have the most beautiful family and we are blessed. We are resting in God's perfect love.
