Why today is such an important day…..

Personal Post

Today is a very important day! Do you know why? Take a seat, I’ll tell you why. Today is Joshua’s Birthday! WHOOO HOOO! (insert confetti emoji, haha) Josh is my fiance. Wow! It’s still werid to say fiance. Today is the day that Josh turns 26. He is going to kill me for telling you his age. He always says “I’m almost 30. I’m officially old.”  Every time he says it, we both giggle and he says “No, seriously. I’m falling apart.”

I don’t think he’s old. I think he is the coolest kid on the block. We have been together for 7.5 years. We met on the first day of our first job. Joshua is my best friend. He is the person I want to spend all my time with. He is loving, caring, joyful, honest, and funny. He would tell you that the most important thing is that he is funny. Truthfully, he is one of the funniest people I know.

I could go on and on all day about how much I love him and how incredible he is. I decided to show you instead. I scrounged up some photos of us to share with you guys. I am surprised at how few photos we have from when we first started dating. I am a photo addict so I am shocked that there aren’t more.

Oh boy. Here is 16 year old me.  Oh boy. Here is 16 year old me. This is the day Josh graduated from Courtland. I was so proud of him!  This is the day Josh graduated from Courtland. I was so proud of him!

Josh is always up for a challenge. He is so competitive but that's ok because he is always impressing me. We had a blast at the Children's Science Museum in Richmond.

These were our VERY FIRST professional photos together. We waited 6 years to get photos done. Why? I have no clue, lol.  He is the best puppy dad to our yellow lab, Archer.  These were our VERY FIRST professional photos together. We waited 6 years to get photos done. Why?
