Well, Year 4, we've reached the end.
In the last year, Byron and I road-tripped from Texas to Nantucket, exploring the country along the way. We celebrated my sister's wedding in Alabama. We partied hard with Uncle Buck in Louisiana. We saw the original rules of basketball in Kansas.
My position at Baylor moved to full-time. Byron started his Master's and moved into a new position at his school. I brought my calligraphy business out of a year-long hiatus.
We ate delicious food. We drank delicious drinks.
We learned more, laughed more, and loved more.
As each year comes and goes in our marriage, I am amazed at how much we have packed into our time together. And even with all the adventures, the days at home, sharing a meal and swapping stories of our days are my favorite moments. As we were cooking dinner on Monday, laughter filled the kitchen as we tried to finish each other's sentences. That's the stuff you don't think about on your wedding day that becomes the heart of the marriage.
Marriage has been the sweetest gift and I'm excited to start Year 5!
