WOW! 10 Years!

Today my husband and I are celebrating our 10 year anniversary.  It is so cliche but I honestly cannot believe how fast it has gone.  I know to some 10 years is nothing, but considering my longest relationship up until my husband was 2 1/2 years, this is a long time!  And if there is one thing I can say about marriage, it is F-ING HARD!  Come on, for those of you who are married, you know this to be true.  No one said that getting married was going to be a fairytale (well, except for Disney) and though there are some incredible moments, there are also moments when I have wanted to bash my head into a wall.

So what I have learned over the last 10 years?  Here are just a few things:
1. I am not always right, even though I think I am.
2. Raising children can suck the life out of you and your marriage if you are not careful.
3. There is no greater feeling than having a husband who loves and adores you.
4. Compromise is not losing, but learning how to work together.
5. Men and women are VERY different, especially when it comes to shopping and sex.
6. You will love your spouse even more than you thought possible when you see them with your children.
7. Never show a new purchase to your husband until you are wearing it.  It will be harder for him to get mad about the purchase.  This is especially true if it is tight, short or low cut.
8. Your lowest moments together will bring you closer.
9. It is possible to love someone but hate them at the same time.
10. Marriage is worth fighting for.

Happy Anniversary Hubby!  It has been an incredible ride thus far and I am looking forward to the next 10 years!
