two years ago today lauren and i got married.
on our first anniversary, i was focused on the memories of the night itself, all of it still fresh in my mind. thinking of all our friends and loved ones and how the night seemed to come together as if by magic. well, if we’re being honest, magic AND hard work. (who can forget all the hours of crafting, setting up chairs, and debating things like table assignments?)
the second anniversary feels different. of course, we’ll pull up this video and photos tonight and reminisce, but for me, the focus is elsewhere.
i’m focusing more on the things we’ve built together in these short two years. the home we made for ourselves, our family that will soon grow to three, the adventures we’ve taken and the ones still to come, and the friends we’ve met along the way. i’m living exactly the life i want to live and none of it would have been possible without lauren.
i am so lucky and blessed. i try to remember that every single day. even mondays before i’ve had my coffee. sharing this life with lauren and baring my truest weirdest self to her everyday (and having her do the same right back) has been the source of so much joy.
the fact that, in a few short months, we get to share all this weirdness/awesomeness with our daughter is something i can’t even fully comprehend right now. i know our life is about to change. i know it won’t be easy. but i’ve never been more excited.
it’s going to be magic.
magic and hard work.
