This picture was taken 13 years ago of Joe's and my first Ferris wheel ride together. You could say a lot has happened in our lives since then: other significant others, college breaks, watching our siblings grow up, traveling abroad, raising a baby ... Yeah, a lot of stuff. I am so blessed to have had the years I've had ... with you. Together, we've experienced the shuddering joy of witnessing a baby's first breath and have shouldered the solemn pain of losing someone we loved. It wouldn't be totally accurate to say you've changed my life (it's not like you swooped in and saved me from myself.) But for as far back as I can remember, you have a place in every important memory; you've played a role in every meaningful day. You have affected my life countlessly (So much so, my mind runs away). As I type this, I realize I can't envision what came before you, not wholly and not with enthusiastic clarity. And as I take in the slight snores of our sleeping child, (it's naptime), I think of your strength and decisiveness, your gentle heart and easy smile, and I know wherever my memory has failed is just fine. ️ #WeGotEngagedOnNewYearsEve
