What? Who are those two kids? Wait, that is us way back in time----eleven years ago!!
Today is our eleven year wedding anniversary! I can't really even understand how those eleven years have passed, yet time continues to move forward (or sideways or slantways, depending on your perspective). Eric and I had already been a couple for quite some time when we got married, but that was the day we made a very serious commitment (our vows said FOREVER, not 'til death do us part) to each other and probably made the best decision of our lives. Not one single day has passed in those elven years where I didn't feel a deep gratitude for my husband and our marriage. Today is no different. I am so in love with my husband (yeah, yeah, yeah it's my blog I can be sappy) and today is a day to celebrate.
In honor of our 11 years I thought I would paint a little past/present picture for you:
Eric and I were technically homeless. We had left our first college, planning to move to Montana after the wedding. We stayed with family for about a month before the wedding.
Our list of responsibilities included keeping two very independent cats alive. Oh and keeping ourselves alive. We didn't have any bills at all at that point in time. Absolutely 0.
We were in Alamogordo, NM.
We had almost no money and no jobs. Pretty much it was a great time to get married and I say that without any sarcasm, it really was a good time to get married.
We had high school diplomas and a few years of college between the two of us.
We pretty much had it all figured out.
We are no longer semi-homeless. Homeowners instead.
We finished college...at least until I lose my mind and go back for the PhD.
Our list of responsibilities is too extensive to bother listing off. Still included on that list are keeping ourselves and two independent cats alive.
We have jobs and our needs are all met.
We live in Wyoming of all places.
We have a daughter and another soon (very soon) to arrive.
We have nothing figured out and are quite happy with that.
