Three and a half years married and we are next!

J and I went to a wedding last Saturday. It was beautiful and wonderful and so good for us!! We don't take the time to go on a date often enough, mostly because it can be a challenge finding someone to babysit. Someone who our kids will actually let babysit them... I might have to stop worrying so much about them freaking out about us not being there... they do much better with being babysat than I like to admit!
Anyways, we were there, sitting close to the back of the chapel, holding hands and sitting close, enjoying the peace and quiet, remembering our own wedding. It was... bliss.
After the ceremony we stood up and waited until it was our turn to walk out of the chapel when a women sitting behind us says "you two are so in love! I bet you're going to be next!!" ... say what?!?
Ohh yes... we don't wear rings. I was too caught up in the fact that someone just commented on how much in love we are that I forgot we don't actually wear rings. It was a wonderful reminder that we need to treat each other the way we used to when we were dating, so in love! It doesn't have to be all the time... but regularly! very very regularly!! It was refreshing, and wonderful, to have a complete stranger comment on our love, not knowing that we have almost 4 years together and two kids at home. I wan't to keep being that couple... until we have 60 years and great grandchildren... and even longer than that!

Haha! This is sweet. Also it reminded me of going on a trip with my husband last spring and having someone refer to me as his "girlfriend". We'd been married nearly 16 years and I was pregnant with our eighth baby! Haha!
