Ten years! We met and starting dating immediately after our friend introduced us in the hallway of our high school. It seems longer than ten years. I wouldn’t say it’s flown by, it has moved at a nice speed. Ten years is a lot of life yet also not. A ten year old is still a kid. We’ve changed so much since those high school days - in many ways, thank god for that and equally in many other ways I miss our hopefulness and naivety. What’s funny is for two anniversaries before this one, we took trips to Nashville for mini trips and we would talk about how it was great to visit but we could never live here. We’ve been reflecting a lot, especially in light of baby coming in August this year and observing every emotion that comes with that realization. In the midst of the shock, I am becoming, for the first time, so thankful for Nathan and that he is the one I get to have a baby with. There is a new level of appreciation and immense humility in me. For him, family, and life in general. I’m already softening and it feels like I am about to (to my surprise) step into the best place I’ve ever been in life.
