That has sort of been like our marriage. We started off knowing nothing and having to learn the basic, fundamentals of marriage. Then we progressed to crawling, then walking, and some days running. We have fallen and been hurt and have experienced joys we couldn't have thought up. And yet, in all of this, we are only 5 years in.
So I guess that puts us still in the child phase then, huh?
Oh dear. That means we still have the pre-teen and teenage years to go through before we hit adulthood. Some days this parallel seems so true. Some days it feels like we are still newborns and yet other days it feels like we've got this marriage thing down.
On September 14 (Saturday) we will have been married for 5 years. I feel like I could write a book, or maybe multiple books on "lessons" we have learned. And what not to do. And maybe a few things to do.
All in all, through it all- I love you Seth Braker. And i'm celebrating our 5 crazy, wonderful, painful, awesome years of marriage. Let's continue to go on marvelous adventures together!
