five years together
Yesterday we celebrated five years of marriage! Five years that have gone way too quickly, probably because they've been so enjoyable. Most of the time its hard for me to remember what life was like before Jake, when it was just the two of us and we could go on dates any night of the week. Those three years were so fun, yet I love Deric more now as I watch him grow into his role as a father.
The night before our anniversary we talked for a while (well, I think I spewed thoughts everywhere and let Deric get a word in occasionally) about bigger things than the typical day to day "how's work? how's Jake? what are we eating tonight?" conversations, and it was so good to walk away from that conversation knowing we're right on the same page even though we'd initially had those thoughts separately. I'm very thankful that we have the same hopes/dreams/goals, even if they're not hammered out quite yet, and that we have each other's support. It makes me excited to see what the next five years hold!
