It’s nuts to think we’ve been married five years already. At the same time it also feels like we’ve been together forever. I can’t imagine my life without Chris (or our two kiddos, for that matter). It seems like yesterday Chris & I started talking about getting married.

We had been dating maybe three months when I was talking to him about finding roommates for the next year (my previous roommate situation blew up in my face). As I was thinking aloud, I told Chris I could room with his sister, Lindsay; she was cool. It was quiet. For a second, I thought: Well I guess he might not want me to live with his sister. Afterall, if we broke up that would be pretty awkward. Then Chris looked at me & said, “I was kind of hoping we could be roommates next year.”
We had known each other for 4 months before we went on our first date, but after that everything flew by pretty quickly. We said I love you after a month, we talked marriage at three, he proposed at four, he went on a two & a half month internship in Arkansas at five & four days after he got back, we were hitched. It was all just under a year of meeting each other.
It didn’t feel that fast because we are perfect for each other. Have you seen the Adjustment Bureau? We watched it last weekend (loved that movie, btw) & that’s what our courtship felt like. We were just meant to be together.

Chris, I love you. Thanks for being my husband of five years. Let’s make it another 65, mmk?
