7 Years

It's hard to believe we've only been married 7 years, when my memories of life before Travis seem kind of fuzzy and almost dreamlike. It's just so natural that it seems as if we've been married forever.

And yet it's puzzling to so many people how we ever even managed to get together. Anyone who has known us either as a couple or separately, will attest that Travis and I are truly a case of "Opposites Attract." We rarely see eye to eye on things and while we don't often fight or argue, that's usually only because he avoids confrontation while I tend to seek it out.

We often joke that our marriage is much like that old Gershwin song, "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off" We have so little in common that some days it seems as if it would simply be easier to call the whole thing off. But then as the song says, if we did that, we'd have broken hearts.

So I guess we'll just stay blissfully mismatched for the rest of forever.

Yeah. I think I can handle that.

P.S. We celebrated our anniversary by spending last night at our favorite romantic bed and breakfast. A little spendy, but totally worth it! I'm so glad I have a husband who totally gets me. He knows that even though in reality it's only a few blocks from home that just getting away from the dishes and the laundry and the everyday distractions is really important now and then. Check it out, maybe next time you're up this way, you'll want to experience it for yourself. (And if not, we can always go tour the rooms, because they are just cool to see.)

Cali, it may sound a little strange coming from me (As I rarely have anything to say) but you two are a very attractive couple. Furthermore the fact that you were sealed in the temple tells me the two of you have far more in common then your words alone would attest.
