Last weekend Jason and I had our 5th anniversary. I can't believe we've been married for 5 years! It makes me feel a little old...
5 years ago I was 23 and a half (yup, I'm one of THOSE people!), happy and couldn't wait to be married. Today I'm 28 and a half, happy (most of the time) and still love being married to my best friend.
Things have definitely changed over the past 5 years:
We bought and sold a condo, bought a car, bought a house, got a dog, were in a pretty big car accident, have seen friends get married and divorced, have been through an MBA program, got pregnant, lost a baby, got pregnant again and had Gregory. We had a cancer scare and a life threatening illness scare. Jason's been at the same job while I've moved around and had 4 different jobs (that really doesn't sound good...).
A lot can happen in 5 years but the best part is it's felt like 1 year, not 5. Time has flown by and I've had a pretty amazing man by my side the entire time. Good and bad have come our way but we always come out on top, somehow. I'm more of a spiritual person, working on the religious part of me but I have to say, with everything that has happened it seems that someone, somewhere, is looking out for us.
