Yesterday, Ben and I celebrated our eight year anniversary! We started dating in high school when we were both 17 years old. I honestly can't believe it's been this long! In some ways it feels like it's gone by so quickly but then I start to recall everything that has happened in those eight years and it feels more real. There have been highs and lows, plenty of laughter and plenty of tears but in the end it all comes down to the fact that we can't live without each other (trust me, we tried that once or twice). No matter how different we are (hint: very) I think the simple fact that we're friends that laugh at each other every day has helped us last this long. I've no doubt there will be plenty of multiples of eight years to come and I can't wait!
Anyway, enough with the sappy stuff. We celebrated by doing what we do best: stuffing our faces. We ordered pizza and took it to a park in our suburb with a bottle of Chandon (served in plastic cups, no less). We also played on the see-saw and I coerced Ben into taking a selfie with me. Small wins, I tell you.
Love ya, silly bugger xo
