Maybe what they say about absence is true, but I'm feeling especially thankful for this guy lately.

Dave's been working all day every day for a couple weeks now, so our time together is limited. Thus is the life of an engineer's wife, it turns out. But the time we have had together has been so so good.

Last night (early this morning, actually) we discussed things we remembered about dating back in high school. It was really fun to revisit those memories and to make fun of our awkward, naive high school selves. I told him about the afternoon in Wyoming when I came to the realization that I really liked him, the swing we were on when I knew we would get married, the half hour we spent taking bobby pins out of my hair after our wedding. The very special small moments that we have are now making up something so much greater. It's unpredictable in the absolute best of ways.

Yesterday I came across this music video and song by Andrew Peterson and it just made me so very thankful and so very contemplative of my marriage.

We're coming up on our 5th anniversary, so if you're sick of the sappiness, you may want to take a small vacation from my blog. It will only get worse.

What a blessing to see friends who are still "in love" after the "honeymoon" period of their marriage. This is not sappiness and should be celebrated! :o) We are delighted for you both!

I remember reading a line in a book once something like "the intimacy of our private language of memories known only by the two of us from our years together".....and realizing how special it was to have someone that you can share your life with - both the big events and the small bobbypin moments! Love you both and so glad you have each other!
