Last month CA Cop and I celebrated our 7th anniversary. This month we'll mark the completion of his first year on the job. Thus, the "reflecting". As we sat next to each other at one of those restaurants where they cook the food in front of you and make the onion into a smoking volcano we talked about our last 7 years. The homes we've had, the places we've lived, the vacations we've taken, the births of our children. All the milestones that we've seen come and go. We talked about what we want out of the next 7 years. Where we want life to take us and what we'd like to experience on that journey. If any more little ones will be planned.
Now I know that 7 years is still just the very beginning, but I really feel that we have learned exactly how we function best as a family. I have so much joy in my life completely centered around him and our children. I feel like we are a really good team. Like any team, albeit baseball or soccer, there are certain positions that must be filled in order for the team to play successfully. Two people couldn't play pitcher at the same time because that would leave a space in the outfield vulnerable. That is kinda how our family works. We have positions. And when we are fulfilling our designated position our household just seems to run so smoothly. Especially with the crazy schedule and random overtime it has been really important that we work as a team. We know that we can count on each other.
CA Cop has proven to me that with him at the reigns our family will always be taken care of. Always, he will do what it takes. CA Cop, because of you I want for nothing.
I know this is a touchy feely post. But I just wanted to have these thoughts to reflect on in the future.
I am so grateful that 7 years ago we made a commitment to each other. Truly, CA Cop, with you, eternity is not long enough.
I love you, baby.
