Sweet Harts

Today is my boyfriend, Mike, and my 8 year anniversary.

Mike’s last name is Hartman and it’s more than appropriate because no one has a bigger Hart than him.  It’s one of the many reasons why I love him so.

When I think about the storms we have weathered as a couple over the last 8 years I am grateful that we have made it.  Life isn’t always easy but we have remained in love nonetheless.  One of my favorite things in life are our at home date nights, just us two.  Mike makes me laugh from the bottom of my belly in a way that no one else can.  He has seen me at my best and he has seen me at my worst and he loves me just the same.

As you may have figured from my previous blogs, I have always been big on capturing life’s big (and small) moments with my camera. This blog is going to take you on a journey through anniversary’s past.  Enjoy the trip down memory lane.

Happy Anniversary to my Sweet Hart…

Mike is planning tonight’s festivities.

I may snap a picture or two.

Maybe.  I just might.

I don’t know how the next chapter in our life will be written.

But I know two things that will remain, love and Happiness.
