9 Years and 20 Wishes

by Megan

Today is our 9th anniversary!


If anyone were to ask me for marriage advice, I would say to marry someone you love, but way more importantly, marry someone you like. After 9 years, I still enjoy talking to Daniel about his day, watching our favorite shows together, and planning for the future. A future that will include many more anniversaries.

So tonight we will go out and celebrate our marriage and our friendship. We don’t know for sure what we are doing yet, but it doesn’t matter, because we just like being together.

And while I was writing this, he just came home with flowers. #keeper
