Five years ago tomorrow Ben showed up at my house in Bakersfield at 3AM and told me “Move now or we are going to fall apart.”
I moved, we still almost fell apart, and then I got on some good medicine and now, five years later, I’m closer to sane than ever. We still have good days and we still have some bad ones. I’m still a bit crazy and he’s still the rock of stability I cling to when I feel my outer wall start to crumble a bit. He’s SUCH AN AMAZING father to a tween that doesn’t make it easy a lot of the time.
I read blogs from that time and I think, “Who the hell IS that girl!?” I had no clue where I was going or where I needed to be. Now, we’re married, we just bought our first home together, I am in the place I was searching for endlessly back then, HERE is where I was always meant to be.
Also, he’s as hot as ever and he still makes me laugh (at MYSELF) every single day.
Happy Kinda Anniversary, Ben. (k)
PS – That’s a picture of us in Pismo about five years ago taken by the awesome Miss Lisa.

Awwwwwww! Happy Kinda Anniversary, you two!
Time flies, dosen’t it!? I remember watching pictures in your 4images gallery be posted!
Yes, it does fly! 4images, GOOD LORD what a flashback. That’s actually the app that caused my site to get hacked.
isn’t it so weird looking back at what you were doing that many years ago. i’m happy for you two. and the house is freaking adorable.
at least you were doing something crazy adventurous 5 years ago. lol i looked at my archives and on this day, i was at the dentist getting FILLINGS. bah!
Aww, thanks everybody! 🙂
Aww isn’t it great though to look back and look where you are now and know its a helluva lot better? 🙂
Congrats, Anna and Ben! You guys look so happy and glad your meds are straighten out. I am in the same boat with you. I suffer from Agoraphobia and it had it very hard for the last 7 years with hubby and I.
P.S. You are a awesome mother in your pictures. Your daughter is very lucky to have you. <33
You are a winner! If I were ever to have had the opportunity to have chosen a guy for you it would have been a Ben. Much of the growth you’ve experienced certainly has been influenced by his love and wisdom. I’m happy that you are happy!
You guys are such a gorgeous couple. 🙂 I’m glad you have him in your life. <3
