Anniversary, Round 2

It's hard to believe that we've been married for two years already. In some ways, it feels like we've been married much longer, and in other ways it feels like we're just married and still getting used to one another.

There's the ease in which we fit together, the way my head just seems to find "my spot" on his shoulder.

And there's still the tickle of newness when we learn something surprising about one another.

There's the way my hand reaches for his across the car on the way to work each morning,

and there's the fear of opening up your heart, only to recieve grace and love and acceptance

There's the way he tells his corny jokes that makes me roll my eyes, and then there's the way he tells corny jokes that makes me crack up.

The last two years have gone by crazy fast. In 2010, we'll be married three years, but we'll have been together for ten. In the last two years, we've been camping in Indiana and Illinois, traveled all over the state, we drove through a snowstorm in Iowa and a rainstorm in Michigan. We've been to Hawaii, and trips to Maine, Ireland, and Florida are waiting for us in the future. We bought a home together, and we are figuring out our mid-to-late twenties and just enjoying the life we've been given. It doesn't get much better than this!
