Four Radical Years

Doug and I recently had a four year anniversary. Four years of being in one another's life. Four years of really rad adventures and a few bumps in the road that we conquered like champions. Four years of figuring out exactly what we want and who we want to be. It's been nothing but incredible and I am so lucky, every single morning I wake up next to this man, to know that I am loved, and I can love, so deeply and fully.   
I don't think we're necessarily anniversary people. We went hiking and ate subway sandwiches, took a nap on the couch and watched a movie. It was so perfect I couldn't even tell you how it could have been better. 

Relationships are tricky, especially when you work with your partner, who happens to also be your best friend and confidant. Doug and I aren't perfect. Not even close. Sometimes we fight, sometimes we drive each other bonkers, sometimes we don't listen or don't communicate, but Goddamn it, these past four years have been  the best of my life, and keep getting better. I love the shit out of this man and I am thankful for everything he does for me, every second of every day. And just for fun, here's a photo for every year we've been together. 

The first one is from May 2008 on Mt. Lemmon in Tucson, Arizona
2009 - Silver City, New Mexico
This one is from 2010 in Las Vegas Nevada. 
And 2011 at Ocean Beach Dog Beach, San Diego California.
And of course, the very first photo is now. 2012. It's so rad to think about all the years we have to come and how very luck we are to have made this life together. Thanks for letting me gush for a minute. 

xo,
Beca

    2. I do and that's why I know it can't be taken for granted! Though I do wake up every morning and ask Jeff to make me a lunch. Might be taking advantage of him a bit, but I always appreciate it!!!

  15. I love gushy little posts like this. I tend to stray away from posting how much I'm in love with my boy (because otherwise I'd do it every goddamn day haha) but every once in awhile like an anniversary, there's nothing wrong with sharing how much you love that special someone.

    4 years is a big accomplishment! Mikey & I celebrated our 4 year in February and my goodness, I know the feeling...feels so damn amazing!! I'm glad you're happy miss :) You guys make a great team!

    Also...Mikey loooves his sunnies and me, mine! They are so awesome!
