Today marks the five year anniversary of when Jennifer and I first started talking to one another. As one might imagine, it ranks right behind our wedding anniversary when it comes to our important dates. :-)
It’s amazing how the time has flown. For example, we realized recently that we’ve actually been married now longer than we were dating. It only recently started feeling like it wasn’t just yesterday that we moved in together.
All in all, I couldn’t be happier. Jennifer is the wife/best friend/partner in crime that I always wanted; while she doesn’t always join in with everything I do, she gives me 150% encouragement to do those things, whether it be going to a convention like Comicpalooza, playing Dungeons and Dragons with the guys, or even just trying out a new video game. :-) In turn, she’s introduced me to experiences I would not have done in the past, like going to live theatre, trying new restaurants, and going swimming and the beach. :-)
So, to the love of my life, thank you for finding me, agreeing to date me, and agreeing to marry me. You’re the best thing that ever happened to me, and with five years down, I’m looking forward to the next forty to fifty. :-)
