At six years, the details of that day are getting a little bit fuzzy. At one year, at two, at three...I could tell you exactly what I was doing at practically every minute of our wedding day. What time I woke up to decorate for the reception, when I was getting my hair done, what time I arrived at the church, walked down the aisle, etc.
Some of that has faded now. I remember that it was beautiful. The weather was perfect. The food was delicious, though I could barely relax enough to eat any. I was in love with our flowers, the suits, the dresses, and, most of all, you.
Six years in, and we're settling into what our life is. No more wandering the unknown of grad school (or, really, the unknown of post-grad school). We're here. Three kids, a mortgage, the minivan.
We didn't know what we were getting ourselves into.
And yet, six years for us looks settled. And despite a chaotic past year (a move! a new baby! twin toddlers! a job out-of-state!), it's starting to feel a lot quieter, calmer. More settled. We're ready for that.
Here's to the past six. And six more. Or sixty. Even better.
(Years, that is. Not kids. Yikes.)
