Eight

Today is the 21st of September. Eight years ago, Jason & I began officially seeing one another. It's our anniversary!

{And this year, unlike last year's little bungle, I actually got the number of years correct.}

They say that the number eight is considered to be lucky in some cultures, what with its perfect balance and symmetry. I think that's a pretty good way to describe our relationship too - we balance each other out. Him: Logic. Me: Emotion. Him: Reserved. Me: Overly excitable. Him: Lefty. Me: Righty. You get the idea.

This will be our last anniversary before we get married, and start a whole new series of anniversaries. But September 21st will always hold a special place in my heart, even when it is replaced with our wedding date.

Happy eighth anniversary, Jason. There is so much goodness still to come, and I can't wait for it all to happen.*

{I'm not entirely sure why it looks like I was about to put him in a choke hold. I wish I could out my whole arm.}

*Speaking of good news, I have some - but it'll have to wait for a little while longer yet. I can't wait to share it!

Happy 8th Anniversary. I love celebrating the anniversary of the day you met as well as the one when you are married. Mark and I do every year as well. I think it is important to remember those days :)

Aww, yay. Happy anniversary! And I will say that while we don't do big celebrations for our dating anniversary anymore, we definitely still notice it and count it. I'm sure you guys will do the same! Eight years is a long time!

You and your good news are teases! Congrats you two, eight years is impressive. Nick and I were just talking about how weird it is to give up your "old" anniversary when you take on your wedding day. So worth it.

I loved what you wrote about opposites attracting. That's totally true for me and my husband too.

Hope you guys did something amazing to celebrate!
