7 years ago today, Priya KC Bhatt and I had our legal wedding ceremony. Intimate with literally only immediate family. Our wedding fell just after Thanksgiving so as a result, we rarely celebrate the big wedding day (we prefer to hang with fam and friends.)
Which is what makes this day so special. It’s been a whirlwind 7 years. Into and out of Charlotte. Into and out of Jersey City. Into and out of a good number of jobs along the way (I definitely carry my weight in one area.) Two, ridiculous kids that fill up the world and make everything good, possible.
But today, after a great weekend with friends, made possible AGAIN by the Family that spoils us rotten, I found myself with an itch that needed to be scratched. I’ve gained weight. Only my hair and patience have thinned. Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. But I continue to fly through certain aspects of my life like it is. 7 years ago I promised you, Priya, that I would spend every moment loving you more and making sure each day was happier than the last.
Part of that is how I treat the world. Part of that is making sure I am here and healthy to treat you all like you deserve until the end of time.I woke up this morning and realized that though it’s been a wonderful and incredible 7 years, I need to do more, be better, to live up to my promises so we can live up to our potential.And it had me itching to start on that progress now.
So let’s indulge in our anniversary dinner. And then, with FB as my witness, I am going to scratch the hell out of this itch, and make sure the next 7 years are better than the last 7.
I love you. You’re hot…on the inside even moreso.
