Two years

Two years ago this very day, I met the pizza-crust-throwing man pictured above. As this anniversary of sorts approached and Brennan and I had a few conversations about it, I realized that I have never really heard of other couples making note every year of the date they met each other. (I'm sure there are others, it's just not something you see people writing on Facebook or anything:)) For a moment, I wondered if we were strange to do it ourselves. But as I thought about it I realized that my life changed on this day two years ago just about as much as it changed on our wedding day. I woke up on February 8, 2009 not having a clue who Brennan was and with no idea that my life was about to change. I went to bed that night with butterflies and thoughts of seeing him the next day. After that fateful Sunday we saw each other every single day for the next year and a half (until last fall when I visited Mara in Arizona). That day definitely brought one of the most sudden and significant changes I have ever experienced. Sometimes it is hard to believe that it has already been two years since we met, but then at other times it seems like it has been much longer than that, it is hard to even remember what it felt like to not be together. It has been a crazy two years that is for sure. We have definitely had our bumps in the road, but you know what, I think I'm okay with that. He makes me want to be a better person and I love him. I love him for walking into my life two years ago and never walking back out.
