a dating anniversary

I know having dating anniversaries is kind of cheating, but here's the thing.
I've been doing Dan's laundry for seven years.
And he's been cooking for me for eight.
And even though we've only been married for two ...
I've loved him for nine.
So here's to you, Dan the man.
Nine years down and another whole bunch more to go.
Thanks for making me the happiest girl in the world.
And for cooking me those 2,920 delicious dinners.
Maybe one day I'll cook you one.

  8. It's so funny that you mention this, because just this weekend I was helping my dad put a passcode lock on his new phone, and the one he gave me was "5479" (I guess now you'll be able to break into my dad's phone!) and I thought for so long about what that significance could be. My parents were married in '83, my sister born in '87, me in '89, and my brother in '97. I finally remembered to ask him and he said their dating anniversary was May of '79. :)

    Happy Dating Anniversary to you and Dan!! :)

  13. I love this! I think been-together anniversaries are almost more important than wedding ones, since seriously. We were annoying each other looooong before there were rings involved. :)

    Congrats, you two crazy laundry and cooking kids!

  23. Love your jeans! I'm kind of a whack-o about jeans and my true religion pair is my absolute fav... wearing them currently even!

    Also, dating anniversaries TOTALLY count.

  24. LoLo and I had always celebrated our dating anniversary on August 17 (and actually for the first year at least we celebrated every month on the 17th), but then we got married August 15 so it wasn't as much fun to celebrate twice in one week... but this is so fun! Isn't it hard to believe you could be with the same person for 9 years already???

  25. I feel like we really need to start a "my man cooks me dinner all the time. what's your man do?" club.
