Today marks our fourth wedding anniversary! It seems like time just keeps flying by – how has it already been four years?
Getting married so young, right out of college, also means that our wedding anniversary marks all sorts of other milestones.
Four years since we graduated. Four years since we lived in our first little place, just the two of us. Four years since we got our kitty cats. Four years since we started life beyond college – working as a school librarian for me and graduate school for him, then moving from MS to San Francisco for new jobs.
And in these four years, so much life has happened – the good and the bad, the exciting and the mundane. Many moments of hope and hopelessness, triumph and defeat, encouragement and opposition. Together, we’ve been through graduations, moves, sickness, surgery, new jobs… that’s a lot of stuff for four years!
I’m thankful we’ve been together through it all, even (or especially) the low moments, because the highs are that much sweeter.
Today we’re in Seattle with my family to celebrate a family friend’s wedding who also attended ours four years ago. Everything comes full circle, doesn’t it?
Cheers to another year!
