Four years ago

Four years ago today...

I was so nervous.  I was getting ready to meet a boy named Tim for the very first time.  We had talked on the phone for a month, we had gotten to know each other well, but we had yet to meet.  I had no idea what to expect.  As I drove to meet him at Carrabbas close to where he lived, all I kept thinking was this could be just another one of those first dates.  Another "nice to meet you but this isn't going to work out" kind of things.  I talked myself into believing that it wouldn't work, but after I met him, I felt immediately at ease and comfortable with him.  It felt right.  Little did I know.....

Three years ago today...

I was happier than I had ever been in my life.  T and I had dated for a year, and little did I know that in just a week, it would be the (3rd) happiest day in my life (the 1st being our wedding day and 2nd when Aubrey was born, of course!).  I remember before our anniversary dinner, I had worked for months on end on a scrapbook about our first year together.  Throughout the year I had kept little things from our dates, and I put them together in a chronological summary of how we got to know each other.  I didn't think I could be any happier than I was that day.  Little did I know....


Two years ago today....

We were celebrating two years of knowing each other at that very same place, but a new date had become an even more important date.  We were just months away from our wedding day on September 18th.  Exhausted from wedding planning, we were thrilled to go out on a date, just the two of us.  We talked about how much had changed from that first date two years ago, and we talked about future, our wedding day, our honeymoon, where the years will take us.  Little did we know...


One year ago today...


We were celebrating three years of knowing each other, still eating at the place where we had our first date.  So much had changed in those three short years.  But yet, so much had stayed the same.  We were happily married for nine months and we had just found out we were expecting our first baby.  We hadn't quite told everyone yet, so it was still our little secret, a shared happiness.  I was in that new stages of being pregnant, too, so despite the delicious food and atmoshere, I could barely eat a thing.  But I still enjoyed my date, and like other dates, we talked about how far we had come and all of the unknown blessings that awaited us.  Little did we know....


And today...


Here we are, the same people we were four years ago today.  The same, but yet so much has changed.  We have grown, have been blessed.  We're approaching our second wedding anniversary this September, have lived in our own home for just over a year, and we've been blessed with the sweetest, most loving baby girl we could ever have wished for.  And tonight, when we go out to that same restaurant, like so many years before, we'll talk about how far we've come and what the future could bring.  How little we know....


And to all think it started from taking a chance and meeting a sweet, funny guy named T, just four years ago today.
