3 years ago I married my best friend, business partner, baby daddy, dream sharer, hunk of hotness, Daniel Pritz. Gross, right? Sorry.
But I’ll tell you a secret.
Marriage is hard. Running a business is hard. Having kids is hard. (For anyone who does any of these things, this isn’t a secret. It’s a painfully obvious fact of life). But I’m not here to give you marriage, business, or parenting advice. In fact, if you’d like to give ME a little advice on any of these topics please share it in the comments because Lord knows I need it.
I’m here to say that this journey has been beautiful. It’s beautiful because it’s hard. When things are hard it becomes obvious that I love what we do. I love that we do it together, and I love that we’re sharing it with our kids. Because if we didn’t love it we would have quit so many times. I can think of about seven times just today.
So I want to thank you.
I know, that’s weird. Why am I thanking random people on my anniversary? Because YOU ARE NOT RANDOM. You’ve made this amazing journey possible. Daniel and I get to live our dream together because you see value in what we do. And that’s incredible.
So yes, today is about Daniel and I celebrating our marriage. But it’s so much bigger than that. We’re also celebrating a very full, very crazy life. And Mountaineer Coffee is a huge part of the awesomeness.
