electra310: (Dwayne and Nicole)
It's been ages since I last updated, and it's a week after I actually intended to update, but better late than never! This month marked Mike and my fifth wedding anniversary. It's sort of hard to believe, isn't it? Five years since graduation, five years since everything else got started. It seems like forever ago, but at the same time, I sometimes feel like I'm barely an adult. I still go back and look at the pictures of the wedding, and it sometimes seems as vivid as if it were just yesterday.

It is good to know that after five years, even when some things in my life are really not going the way I want them to, this is as strong as it has ever been, or maybe even stronger. I was a little bit worried when we got married, all those years ago now. We'd dated for four years, been engaged for two, known each other nearly six, but we'd never spent more than two weeks in close contact. I was confident that we knew each others' hearts, but would we be able to live together? That first year had some rough spots and a few weird times, as we adapted to living on our own and together for the first time. We spent more money than we should have, and argued about a few things that didn't need arguments. We never should've even tried to live with only one internet connection. ;-) But we survived that year, and the next, and three more after that, and now I can't imagine living any other way.

Happy anniversary, sweetheart! Five years down, here's to fifty-five more.
