Interrupting my scheduled travel posts to announce that… on September 24th, Chris and I will be celebrating seven years together! How crazy is that?! Time sure does fly by when you’re having fun! Since we had the weekend off from work, we decided to celebrate before the actual day itself (especially since we’ll both be stuck at work that day).

We took a quick hike up to the mountains – our first hike in over four months! We planned on doing the Watchtower Trail but stopped halfway due to the heat. After leaving the park, we grabbed chicken tenders from McDonalds and enjoyed the rest of our day together.

Today, we went for a morning run, ran some errands and enjoyed lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant. I think I’m proud of where our relationship has taken us over the years – from dining in somewhat expensive places to celebrate to just running errands and going to our go-to place to celebrate. It’s the little things that matter, ya know? Bottom line is, the most important thing is that we get to spend our time together!

Also, I upgraded to the iPhone XS this past Friday and I am in love. Come at me with that portrait mode y’all ~

    Happy 7 years to you and Chris!!! You two are the cutest and love watching your adventures together. Taking the day off and chilling sounds like a great break from the everyday adulting life.

    I love that hiking trails are accessible from your place!! Wherever you are, nature is close, hehe. I like that you two pretty much grew up together. I AM EXCITED TO FOLLOW MORE OF YOUR ADVENTURES!

    Yassssss we’re twinning with the new iPhone XS!!!!

    Happy anniversary!! 7 years is such a long time, that’s amazing! I love that you did small things then went to one of your favourite restaurants. It really is the little things when you’ve been together a long time. And Mexican food is amazing anyway so why would you feel the need to go anywhere else?? x

    Ah! Seven years together? That’s so exciting! Enjoying a hike together outdoors in the wilderness is such a lovely way of celebrating and marking those 7 years πŸ™‚ x

    Ahhhhh happy anniversary (yesterday!). I LOVE that you guys have been together for so long. It’s way too seldom that you see relationships where people truly stick it out through alllllllll the ups and downs. Relationships are WORK man, but they’re so worth it in the end! You both look so happy together and sound like you genuinely love and respect each other. It makes me so happy. I hope you did something wonderful to celebrate yesterday. Here’s to so many more years together!

    Happy anniversary!! A hike seems like a totally appropriate and very YOU way to celebrate <3 // I have the iPhone 6 and would only upgrade for the camera ahh. My battery has been acting up lately so maybe it's a sign to get a new phone… -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

    Happy 7th, that’s nice to know you love to do simple things together. Iphone XS came in too quick, how fast is the mobile trends. We just got our free Iphone 7 from our work and Surface Pro because we moved to a new building, I guess my phone is now too old technology wise πŸ™‚

  20. September 28, 2018 / 12:20 PM

    Congratulations on 7 years and wishing you many more happy years ahead! The hike looks lovely, great pics, though sounds like you did the right thing avoiding too much in the heat. Days spent with our loved ones are days well spent x

    OMG, YES! That portrait function is LIFE! my almost-sister-in-law took some pics of me at the beach with that new function and they were like headshots. It was AMAZING.

    Happy anniversary, 7 years is an achievement for sure! The photo of you two is really cute and you’re absolutely right, it is the little things. Also you can never go wrong with Mexican food in my opinion, I could have tortilla chips and guac every day. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the hike, it looks amazing xx
