Six Year Anniversary

Today is May 13th, 2018 and that means that Jeremy and I have been married for 6 years.





That means that 2,190 days ago we gathered in a field of daisies in Nebraska with our closest family and friends and committed to be parters together "as long as we both shall live." 

The magnitude of that is still sacred to me. 

Because our wedding photos of that day include 
people who have died, 
people who have now married,
people who have had affairs,
people who have divorced, 
people who have had children, 
people that I haven't seen in years,
people I may never speak to again. 

That day was just a moment in time. 
A snap shot of the way we were. 
One particular day where we committed our lives to each other, but as The Weepies say, 
"the world spins madly on." 

And so the landscape and content of our lives has changed greatly and in this wild ride, 
we continue choosing to cling to each other. 

The last six years have taken us 
from Lincoln, Nebraska
to Cheongju, South Korea
to Denver, Colorado. 

From jobs as teachers assistants, lifeguards, assistant camp directors, English teachers, builders, baristas, retail assistants, wood workers, and students to soon-to-be social workers. 

From student loan debt 
to being debt-free!
to more student loan debt...

From the first of many of our friends to get married
to the last of many of our friends to do most other things, like
start careers
own homes
get dogs
and/or
have kids.

You might say, we are late bloomers. 
But we are really damn happy anyway.






Still Love
by Great Caesar

Fold up your flag
Your tattered battle shield
Lay down your arms
You don't have to fight with me

Show me your wounds
And I'll wrap your bandages
If you still bleed
I'll curb the damages

Let go of fear, trust in me dear
'Cause I'll keep you safe while you're still here
Through all the days of all my years
This I can promise you: I'll still love you dear

Let go of fear, trust in me dear
And I'll keep you safe while you're still here
Through all the days (I'll still love, I'll still love, I'll still love)
Of all my years (I'll still love, I'll still love)
This I can promise you (I'll still love, I'll still love, I'll still love)
I'll still love you dear (still love you dear)
I'll still love you dear
