Today marks three years. Three years simultaneously feels like: Three years! Look at us!! and Three years? That's it? It has seemed like so much longer than that.
Maybe it's because we've pack a lot into our three years—7 moves, 1 new baby, 20 airplanes, 12 states, 6 countries, 6 different jobs, 1 new language, 2 degrees, and countless hours of time spent together wondering when we'll ever settle down. Or maybe it's because once your love someone completely you can't remember what it was like before they came around.
Whatever the case, I think this go-go mode might just be the way we are. We may be on the go forever, but as long as I've got Mike by my side, I'm sure we can handle whatever comes our way. The chaos, the motion, and state of constant flux has made our relationship more nuanced, more real and more enduring. I love you Michael Neal.
I still remember how I felt when this picture was taken. Today, I think I feel like that times three. Marriage just keeps getting better. Because he's my person and I'm his.
Tonight we're going out to dinner and to poke around some book stores in search of the perfect coffee table book about Bologna. What could be more romantic than a coffee table book, right? It's going to be a quiet, relaxing evening without distraction, which is exactly what both of us need.
