Today is my fifth anniversary. I know I’ve said this (ad nauseam, no doubt) but I have come a long way. Steve and I together have come a long way. The kids have come a long way. In both maturity and literal growth–I mean, Lindsey was such a little one! Hardly out of nighttime diapers. When I look at pictures from our wedding and see my grinny, red-lipped self, I think, “She had no idea what this was all about.” I talk about this in chapter 4 of the love story, but it’s worth touching on again. When I say I had no idea what it was all about, it doesn’t mean I’d change it. It just means… I had no idea what my future held. What it’d feel like. And yes, how hard it would be.
Not that you already didn’t know all that. But just in case you didn’t, I’m glad to have told you.
Love you, Steve. Happy fifth anniversary!
