5 Years

You know this thing we have going on?

The fam 5

I kinda like it. 

The way you smell like jet fuel when you get home from a flight,

the way you know to catch me when I jump into your arms,

the way Olivia smiles at you and kicks her feet because she’s so happy to see you,

the way you work so hard to take care of your family,

the way you make me feel, whether I’m dressed up for a date, or a sleep-deprived cranky zombie,

the fact that Liv will know what to look for in a good man, because you set the bar so high.

If this is what 5 years looks like, I’d like at least another 50. <3

Happy anniversary, Starbucks guy. 


*We’re off on a little staycation, so I’ll be back sometime tomorrow 🙂

    Happy Anniversary, Gina and Pilot. 🙂

    I rarely tear up at stranger stuff (movies/books/etc) but I have to admit to tearing up at
    y’all’s video when the Pilot returned from war and the birth story. Sometimes I read your
    military related posts and wonder if that’s how my Mom felt when my Dad was in Vietnam.
    Y’all have a love that definitely ‘comes thru the page’. As always thanks for sharing it with us. 🙂

  30. JBecca on August 18, 2012 at 8:31 pm

    Happy Anniversary! Beautiful post!

  31. purelymichelle on August 18, 2012 at 9:21 pm

    Happy Anniversary to my favorite people!! love you two.
    I hope one day I can say the same when I meet Mr. Right 😉

  32. Mel on August 18, 2012 at 9:41 pm

    Oh Gina, I am so inspired by your spirit and open heart. I have been reading your blog for a while, but have never commented. This post forced me to. You appreciation for the pilot “just as he is” is amazing. I think a lot of women would not be “emotionally mature” enough to handle such a career. I can tell that you accept and appreciate everything about the pilot just the way he is. You are probably the most emotionally mature blogger out there. Also, your heart seems very open and honest. I think you will continue to do great things in life because you are connected physically, mentally, and emotionally. I aspire to eventually get to that point. Namaste.

    • Kathy on August 20, 2012 at 12:03 pm

      Perfecty said and I whole heartedly agree!

    • Fitnessista on August 20, 2012 at 7:53 pm

      i appreciate your kind words so much, and thank you for reading.
      namaste <3
