Happy Anniversary Kismet!

So true….

Today is most definitely ‘mynewfavoriteweek!’.  It is ever so appropriate that KSP and I will celebrate our 4 year anniversary today on the heels of our sweet angels turning 2 years old on Tuesday.

When we got married in front of dear friends and family in Cabo San Lucas 4 years ago, we wrote our own vows filled with laughter and tears, some sarcasm, and a “let’s do this!”  We talked of friendship, joy, promises, and future.  We confirmed commitment, values, collaboration and compromise.

A special moment after we said our vows...

We entered into a marriage and union that would be anchored in love and friendship.

Today, I can honestly say, we have been put to the test. Those vows we took were not just words, they were feelings. Promises. An anchor tethering us to one another in what would become the stormiest seas of our relationships and most likely our lives.

In the past 2 years, we have had to call on all of those feelings to celebrate, comfort, support, and collaborate with one another in protecting our children and our relationship.

Today the waters are more calm and we can begin to look again at us and our dreams together.

When we first met, we used the word Kismet with frequency to describe our relationship and that still exists today but not in the  infatuation cutesy way that it used to,  but in the way we have been through the trenches together and now kismet lies in having just the person you want standing by your side, or laying their head next to yours in your bed each night as you wake up to greet each day and to know things are exactly as they are meant to be.

Happy Anniversary KSP, I love you today more than ever and I am blessed to call you my husband and best friend. As we head into the next many very happy years (yes, you are stuck with me:)), I have three words for you, “let’s do this!”

Do you believe in Kismet in your own life? And does believing this make it ‘yournewfavoriteday?’

Celebrating...whoo hoo...I still feel like this today, but strangely I don't look as rested:)

About Shannon Pruitt from 'Mynewfavoriteday'

Welcome to 'mynewfavoriteday. This space is about gratitude and connecting through being open, vulnerable and real. I hope you will enjoy my take on motivation, inspiration and advocacy and will take the opportunity to tell me of your own thoughts and stories. Why I started 'mynewfavoriteday.' I am a childhood surviving, divorced, now happily married, IVF (and now natural pregnancy) success story, working mother of 2 amazing babies who were born 12 weeks premature. As life often seems to surprise you when you least expect it, we added another sweet baby girl M to our family in July of 2013. While our angel minis, Q and E are now 7 years old, our son, Q, has thrived while our daughter, E, has had a much more difficult journey. She is considered special needs and in September of 2012 was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Angelman Syndrome. And so, as she has grown, so do we as individuals and as family. How to help her, how to celebrate our differences while allowing ourselves to cope with the challenges that we never knew to expect. Thus, while much of this blog is based on our experiences (good and not-so-good), it is also based on how we must not let ourselves become victims of our circumstances but rather advocate in our own lives. A little bit about me and who I am. In my professional life I am a marketer in the Entertainment Industry; however, ‘mynewfavoriteday,’ was not born of entertainment or marketing but rather as a pathway to help myself and others as we try to define who we are as parents, family members, spouses, friends, colleagues and people. I believe in never judging a book by its cover. Every cover is different, and no matter what your cover looks like, you never know how someone's book is written. Like mine. From the outside, you might never know what truly makes me who I am or what I believe. This blog explores the pages on the inside of my book. My vulnerabilities, fears, happiness, and all my triggers through the lens of being grateful for all the amazing blessings I know I have received but sometimes forget in the challenges of daily life. Thanks again for dropping by. I hope you will come back, subscribe, comment, share, and/or just hang out and be inspired or motivated to make each day for yourself or someone else 'anewfavoriteday.' By being here, you have certainly helped to make it mine. xo, Shannon
