Celebrating our 10 year Anniversary


Yesterday, on July 2, 2015, Stefan and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary with a less than extraordinary, yet more than ordinary, routine day. We were able to celebrate together with a 3 hour dinner and beach walk the week before thanks to friends, so today felt really 'normal'. It was just as hot in British Columbia as it was on that Saturday morning in Nebraska 10 years prior.

We spent the evening having dinner (homemade cheese pizza since we're at the bottom of the barrel for groceries), and then Stefan driving around on his sport bike, getting it ready to sell for an interested buyer ( the more-than -ordinary part) to exchange for a cruiser that will give him a more comfortable commute. It was a really busy evening, and we weren't even really around each other, but that's how marriage is. Some days, it's just so normal and uneventful, but there's comfort in that, too.

A friend recently celebrated her anniversary with 'numbers', and I thought I'd borrow the idea for this space because I loved it so much! Here's our past 10 years, summarized in a fun way.

10 years married, nearly 12 together
2 kids
2 pets
7 places to live/ moves (ugggghhhhh)
2 countries
3 states
4 cities
8 modes of transportation/commuting*
7 combined jobs in those 10 years
countless jokes, phone numbers, and movies watched

* though I feel like there's actually been more and I'm forgetting some...
