No seven-year itch here

June 3rd was our 7th anniversary.  We are still trying to find a good night to go celebrate...things just keep popping up.

So Nick and I have never had a song that was "our song" (although I did with my high school boyfriend and to this day whenever I hear "I don't want to miss a thing" by Aerosmith, I burst out laughing. And Nick rolls his eyes).  Anyway, one day I was out and about running errands whilst John Mayer serenaded me via iPod (shocker right?).  One of his songs took me off guard.  I had never really listened to the lyrics until that moment.  Basically it's about how most people are never truly satisfied with their current relationship; Eventually one or both persons inevitably move on to find that "you complete me" feeling once again  But the chorus was what got me me reflecting on the past 7 years of my life:

And I don't need another kind of green to know
I'm on the right side
I'm on the right side with you...
You don't need to lose to know that you had it good

Sure, Nick and I have had rough times, long days and longer nights...but at the end of the day nobody could ever take his place as a husband or father. Period.

I am forever grateful I changed my mind on that cool evening in October and decided to go to that silly corn maze instead of stay home with my roommates.  Crazy how one little decision led me to years of happiness with one amazing guy.

Happy 7th, Nick. :)

Aw, happy anniversary! "Our song" is a draw between Weezer's "Falling For You" (which I had in my head the night we first kissed, but the lyrics are kind of funny), and "Keep On Loving You" by REO Speedwagon. It's just so dang cheesy I love it. :)
