Don and I are just a few days away from celebrating our first wedding anniversary. It’s a bit weird to think about how quickly this past year has flown by. It seems only yesterday we got engaged and were beginning our wedding planning. The year we were engaged seemed to drag on endlessly. But this past year, our first year of marriage, just flew right on by us.
I can’t decide if that’s a good thing or not.
On the one hand – it’s great! We’ve made it through our first year. What “everyone” calls the toughest year. Um…not so much for us. It was a pretty easy going year, I think. We’ve learned more about one another…especially now that we’re living together. We’ve grown closer as a couple and grown more as individuals. It’s been a very great year for us.
On the other hand – it’s not so great. Our first year flew by so quickly I worry the next 50 years will fly by and I won’t even know what hit me. I don’t want that. I want to enjoy my husband and our life together. I want to enjoy the time when we start a family and bring other lives into this world. And I know I will enjoy those times; I just hate thinking how quickly it all really will go.
It’s crazy to think how quickly things change. While in the deciding process on whether or not I wanted to start this blog, I read through a bit of my old one. I started that in the Fall of 2004 when I was in my senior year of college. It’s incredible to look back on the person I was and the thoughts I had at the time. I wrote in my blog until May 2008. I still don’t know why I stopped writing in it. I just did. But to see the person I was just 3 1/2 years ago…wow…totally different. I’m so not that person anymore. And had you told me just 3 1/2 years ago that I’d be where I am today…there’s no way I would have believed you.
This beginning feels like a good one.
Let’s see where we go………..
