You’d think after four years of marriage (and a total of ten years together), we’d know just about everything there is to know about each other and act like an old married couple.
And you’d be completely right.
*Ba dum tssh*
Ok ok bad jokes aside, I cannot possibly think of what my life would be like without Will. He is the best husband and the best father to our daughter and I am so very, very lucky that by some twist of fate we ended up living on the same floor our freshman year of college.
I’m so glad that he was by my side that fateful evening my roommate rolled up to our 3rd-floor dorm room, either high as a kite or drunk as a skunk (possibly both) with a HEAVY wrought iron patio table she had stolen from the student center, exclaiming that she had brought us a “study table.” And did I happen to have a hacksaw on me so she could take the legs off? Otherwise it won’t fit through the door.
I knew in that moment, as we tried in vain to keep a straight face and hide our mirth behind our hands, that this was a guy I wanted to keep around. We might not have taken the most direct path to get where we are today, but that roundabout route eventually circled right back around to exactly where we’re supposed to be: together.
Here’s to the next four years, and the four after that, and after that and again and again, until we are gray and wrinkled, but still laughing, still learning, still in love.
I think I’ve posted this slideshow on almost every blog I’ve ever had, but there are a few of you who are new(er) readers who haven’t seen it.
Will and I had the lowest of low budget weddings: we DIY’d practically everything, including my bouquet and veil, enlisted family members to do decorations and the most delicious cake I’ve ever eaten in my life, and had an incredible venue at our disposal for free. Even with no DJ, no dance floor, and no flowers…it was perfect. I wouldn’t change a thing.
So there’s the backstory – on to the slideshow!
