Happy Anniversary!!!!!

Today marks 7 years that me and Boo Thang have been together!!! *throws confetti* *twirls around in a whimsical circle*

For the back story, this is not the day that we met, or even the day that we made things official (March 15th). This is the day that we actually stopped pretending and let each other know that we had feeling for each other that went above and beyond friends. Seven years ago today, we set up a trip to a casino buffet to try to get my good college friend back together with his college roommate (which is how we even met to begin with). Though they got back together that night, it was the beginning of the end of that relationship (they are still good friends) and the very beginning of ours. We had a LONG conversation that night about feelings and have been inseparable ever since. Even now we are together so often that his nephew started calling us Uncle JayKat like we were one person. He was about 3 then, but that name kinda stuck with his family.

We have been together through some of the hardest things that we have dealt with: the death of my mother, his stepfather, our firstborn. We’ve celebrating great triumphs: graduations, promotions, raises. THere is no other person that I would rather navigate through life with. We are calling this year a year of completion. It’s that time. Whether it’s an all out wedding or a simple justice of the peace ceremony, it’s time.

This year since our anniversary is on Sunday, we did our celebrating all weekend. We went to dinner last night at Table 100, which is a really lovely restaurant here in the city. I had the shrimp and grits and it was AWESOME!! We also went to movies to see The Lego Movie (we are big kids at heart) and brought it on in. Today is just a rest and relax day……which we cherish so much with all the hustle and bustle of the week. I love love!!

  1. My husband was the “Nice Guy”. I liked him – thought he was great even, but he wasn’t no heart doctor. Then – Thank God, a series of unfortunate events and a really big ass tornado he came over one day and never left. I ADORE THIS MAN. He is to cute, makes me laugh alllllll the time. I was being silly, shame on me hahaha. It is okay though if I wouldn’t have been so picky I never would have met him, Ha! Life is so easy with someone you don’t want to slap up the side of their head.
