If you are reading this, I just got married. Like, right now. Kim and I are probably taking pictures or saying thank you or heading to the reception.
Kim and I met each other in the beginning of 7th grade – fall of 2001 for those who have known us long enough. We’ve been a couple since spring of 2002. In other words, we’ve been a couple since they discovered water on Mars. Our relationship is older than the International Criminal Court, even! We’ve lived together for two years (and been engaged for the same amount of time, minus a few hours), and today we just took the big leap together. It’s been surreal – a wonderful journey with my best friend. And we’re just getting started!
This terse blog post marks a significant event but at the same time a small change in a long history of a relationship. As of right now, we are what we weren’t a few moments ago – married. Our legal status has changed, and taxes will look a little different from here on out,but we’ve also made a huge commitment to each other. Plus, I don’t feel left out anymore and can finally wear a ring too! But, we’re also still two people who are in love and sharing our lives together. We’ve got over eight years of history as a couple – from junior high to high school to college, from parents’ houses to apartment to townhome, but we’ve got a lot ahead of us.
Here’s to the future.
