In the car the other day, I was thinking about the upcoming holidays and celebratory occasions. Our wedding anniversary is one of those occasions, and I remember its our first milestone: five years. I tell Husband, “It’s our five year anniversary this year!”
We don’t usually do much, as we had a newborn and lived out of state for our first anniversary. Since then there’s only been one year where I wasn’t either pregnant or caring for a very needy infant. I was thinking that we should do something special for this one, and was trying to come up with something affordable.
Husband replies, “Wow, five years!” I think he’s amazed at how much time has passed since that wonderous, magical day. Wanting the confirmation, I ask if it seems longer or shorter, confident he will say shorter. “Longer! Much longer.”
The magic continues…
