8 Years!

As of Saturday, Eliot and I have been together for 8 years. 
Can you believe that?? I really can't!

He is truly my very BEST FRIEND and I can't imagine what the past 8 years would have been like without him by my side! I love our shared adventurous spirit, his sense of humor, and his passion for the things he loves. I love that he is never boring, that I can tell him things with only a look, and I love how adorable he is, too.
In the past eight years we have graduated college, moved a few times, and gotten real jobs. We have driven across the country {twice}, lived in California, traveled to Italy, to Costa Rica, to Canada, to Florida, to Kentucky... and just about every where in between! We had a serious car accident in Canada. We learned to surf, ziplined the rain forests of Costa Rica, drank lots of wine, and skied the mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont.

He makes me laugh when I want to cry, and once or twice cry when I want to laugh. He supports all of my endeavors and encourages me like no other. He makes fun of me for having no coordination, but I love him anyway! He inspires me to be the best that I can be. 

I have loved the past 8 years and can't wait to see what life has in store for us! I can't wait to start a family with him and watch him become a father in the future, I know he will be great. I wouldn't want to grow old with anyone else!  
The time has flown by, I love him more everyday, and I am so absolutely excited to become his wife in 138 days!! 


  1. Happy 8 year anniversary! That's quite a long time and something to definitely be proud of!

  2. How great!!!! That's a really long time together and a great accomplishment!
