In bed and on his computer on Wednesday, Coach looked up, surprised, and said, "we've been married for 6 months on Monday." I had completely forgotten and shrugged it off--6 month anniversaries don't really do it for me. Coach went back to his computer and that was the end of it.
Until I got home last night. Coach left for a track meet in Indiana yesterday and won't be back until late Saturday night. I walked into the kitchen with my hands full and stopped as soon as I laid eyes on the kitchen table. He had gotten me roses....creamy white roses with pale pink tips, almost like peony-roses. And the sweetest note.
Oh he is full of surprises! I carried the flowers from room to room with me last night....I had them in the kitchen while I made dinner, and brought them to the bedroom while I got ready for bed.
6 months of marriage and I didn't even realize it! We both got new jobs, we bought and began to renovate a house, we fought, we made up, I cried, we laughed. We made it through our first holiday season together. We even cleaned a basement reaking of dog urine (courtesy of the last owners).
If that's the first 6 months, I am super interested to see what the next 6 months will bring!
I am so, so glad I married him....even when he makes me crazy.
Are you a big anniversary person, or do they fly by un-noticed?
