5.

 

  5 years ago today, I married my best friend. Every anniversary that goes by, I understand more and more why people say it just gets better with time. I embrace that cliche whole heartedly. I am extra sentimental this year about being able to do life with Justin. This month two years ago, we were learning to grieve together as we miscarried our first baby. Today, we're learning to parent our new son together. Such different experiences, but both have drawn us immeasurably closer. If there are two moments that I have felt my heart swell with love for my husband more than any other, they would be when he held me after losing our first baby and seeing him first hold our son. During the best and worst parts of life, I am so glad he is by my side.

Happy anniversary! I agree, marriage does get better. I look forward to seeing my hubby hold our son when he gets here in just a few weeks :) Through our hardest time (our miscarriage) we grew the closest.
