Today marks year 5 for Kurtis and I! (Since we’ve been together that is) I was 17 when we first got together a now here we are, 5 years, a marriage and a baby later.
It’s so weird to think about when you first met people who became so important to you. Because, who could know? How could 16 year old me know that the boy she just met in the dance room at school would one day be my husband and father of my children? How could I have know that my crazy, dramatic, on again off again high school romance would actually mature and grow and end in the creation of a family.
5 years seems like nothing in the grand scheme of things. But so much has happened it blows my mind. We don’t celebrate this anniversary anymore (we have a wedding anniversary now!), but this day is still so so special to me. It’s the day we decided to cut out the on again off again nonsense, and be together for real. Because even at such a young age, we knew we loved each other.
Forgive me for being so sappy and reminiscent, but I’m so proud of how far we’ve come. And we got the greatest gift ever out of it, our son, and watching each other become parents.
I wholeheartedly support everyone’s right to believe their love story is the most magical. I sure believe mine is.
