There are not many things I’ve done in my life consistently for 10 years. I’ve certainly not lived in the same house for ten years. Or had the same job, or driven the same car. I’ve not lived in many cities straight for 10 years or even attended the same school.
Double digits, though. Seems impossible that it’s already been 10 years. TEN. Holy crap. That just seems like a long time. A huge milestone. Deserving of jewelry maybe? 😉
I find that I am a little more sentimental about the date we met than the day we got married. You see, a marriage is planned. The day is chosen. Details are decided upon.
A first date though – that is more by chance. You have no idea how it’s going to go. You are hopeful, but not sure.
The day I met Dan changed my life forever. The day I married him, it just got better. Both are significant, and though most people I know don’t celebrate a dating anniversary, especially after 10 years, it still and and will likely always be one of my favourite days of the year.
Sadly though, what I’m lacking to add to this post are current pictures of Dan and I. Even a shameless selfie. Renos (Dan), photoshoots (Me), birthday parties (Jaia), etc. have kept us from really enjoying some time all together as a family lately. With no plans for life to settle down in the coming months (visuelle photography has more shoots booked this fall than ever before), we just have to start making Fullerton time a priority. Maybe even this weekend…?
Happy first date day, Dan. On to decade number 2. I can’t wait to see the fun it will bring…
