No one congratulates you like they did on your first year. Some even say, "Two? Oh, that's nothing, we're seven, or eighteen or twenty-one!" Many have said, "Just two? You two seem like you've been together so much longer."
For Husband and me, it's been a year of both big and little change. We moved across the country together knowing that it wasn't going to be easy leaving our friends and family on the west coast but it was going to be wonderful for our marriage. And it has been. Husband and I have spent nine months living in a very different place than where we came. We've met new friends. We've found a new place to eat Pho. We've started new jobs. We've learned where our new Target is located. We've watched all the trees turn glorious colors. We've watched all the leaves fall off trees and then magically pop back overnight just when we thought it would never happen. We've shopped, and re-shopped for a new church. We've bought giant winter coats (and worn them!). We've created our new "brunch spot" for Saturday mornings. We've learned how to scrape our car windows. We've met a new bartender who knows what we want when we walk in the door. We've planted poppies in Spring. We've tried to start saying "shore" instead of "beach". We've lived without good ol' fashioned Mexican food. We've turned our clocks back and forth and wondered what time it is at "home" before we call. We've eaten Whoopie Pies. We've driven behind horse drawn buggies. We've discovered who we are away from everything we know.
Two has been a big year.
Its had its ups and downs and a few days of normal scattered in between. Thank goodness I had Husband next to me every day. I'd do it all again just to be with him.
Happy 2nd Anniversary, Husband.
