yesterday was the big 7 year anniversary with my man. wowzers. it makes me feel old. we had a great night together. we exchanged cards and gifts before we went to dinner. we definitely got each other the same card. i couldn't believe it! it's nice to know that we feel exactly the same way about each other - enough so that we pick out the same greeting card :) he actually managed to surprise me for probably the first time in a few years! he got me a leopard print locket with one of my fav picture sof us inside - see above. i love it! it's very rock and roll but also very sweet. totally my style. i got him some items he really needed and a gift card to his favorite bike shop. then we went to the black duck for dinner. that's where we had our first chicago dinner date back when i was 19 and he was 18. it's one of our favorites and it brings back great memories.
this year has been so great for us and i feel like i continue to get happier in our relationship over time. we laugh more than we fight and we get to spend way more time together than in the past. we do fun things together like summer festivals, concerts, new restaurants and trips. we do nice things for each other regularly. he surprises me with flowers often and does the dishes after we cook and i bring him his favorite types of candy and send him ecards all the time. that sounds cheesy but i think it shows that we think about each other throughout the day. i swear it's the little things that make the difference!
i'm excited to see what the future holds but right now i am happy and loved and i couldn't be any more lucky.
