We Get to Feel it All

2,628,000 minutes. 43,800 hours. 1,825 days. 5 years.

Five years ago today I met my husband. Our 2 year wedding anniversary is coming up in a few days and that has earned its own post, but being in love with this man for 5 years also seems worthy of posting.

Friends, I thought I wasn't going to find him. I have always been an "old soul" and being the worrier that I am, I was convinced at 21 that I would not meet my Mr. Right. Crazy, I know. But, all I knew was that I hadn't met him yet and I couldn't figure out when he was going to come knocking on my door. {Obviously not the last time I would be worried about events out of my control.}

Well, the stars aligned and in he waltzed to my life on September 22, 2006. I have told you before that it was at first sight, and was it ever. I had never experienced such clarity as I did in that moment. I called my best friend after I met him {and we stood frozen in time talking like old friends for hours} and told her I had met the man I was going to marry. Used to my dramatics {remember, cat lady at 21?} she shrugged it off and told me that I couldn't possibly of known that. I have never felt so sure of anything and today and I am simply thanking God that He brought us together the way he did.

We have been through more in our five years together than I ever imagined. We have faced challenges no one should face, and we have been blessed in ways words cannot properly express. We have grown stronger and closer together in love through many bright days, and even through the darkest ones.

He has taught me to be a better person, to laugh when all I can think to do is cry, to {try} to live every day to the fullest, to {try} to stop worrying so much, and to love harder every day.


 I still think you are the most handsome man I've ever laid eyes on.
Even through bad haircuts and matching Easter egg outfits.

 I still have so much fun with you
Thank you for always challenging me
 

and for still trying to impress me.
Thank you for asking my parents for my hand,

 travelling with me to exotic places,

and taking my breath away.

I still love dancing with you til' our feet hurt.

I love this song. I think it's sweet and it reminds me of us.

my, my, how time flies.
first time I met you had to shade my eyes.
staring into the sun can make a girl blind.

here we sit in a shady spot.
got what I wanted and i want what I got.
but through no will of my own, I just found my way home.

here's what I learned about you: you set the sun and you hung the moon.
mid October or the month of June,
temperatures rise and fall. We get to feel it all.

sometimes, I can't tell.
you're open like a book or shut like a shell,
but if I hold you to my ear I can hear the whole world.

dark stories of a distant past, our time created in a single glass.
you like to laugh at me because I'm serious, and yes it's true.

but here's what I learned about you: you set the sun and you hung the moon.
mid October or the month of June,
temperatures rise and fall. We get to feel it all.

and time waits for no one.
So I'm remembering that day in the sun.
I was thinking you needed time to cool down.

Circumstances make us tired and colder.
that's my coat thrown around your shoulder.
I know you'll give it back to me if I need it, I believe it.

but here's what I learned about you: you set the sun and you hung the moon.
mid October or the month of June,
temperatures rise and fall. We get to feel it all.
