The Seven Year Itch?

Does it start or end at your seventh wedding anniversary? Today is our seventh wedding anniversary. :) John gets to celebrate by working 8 hours and then heading to class for another 4 hours.

When I start to think about it, the last seven years have been incredibly busy. Lots of ups and downs. From our wedding, pregnant with Alexa, my mom diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer, Paul's wedding, having Alexa, my mom passing away, both my in-laws diagnosed with cancer, my dad's heart surgery, Lisa's heart surgery, having Ava, Lisa passing away, John's job ups and downs... its just been busy. I can't believe this much time has passed and so many of life's "moments" have wizzed by. Will the next seven years go by as quickly? I hope they go by slowly. I want to cherish each year!

Some pictures from the last 7 years...






Here's to many more years, and thousands more photos! You can never have too many pictures. ;)
