So time.  It really does pass in a blink.

Nate and I will be together 15 years this Friday.



I have spent nearly half of my life with this man.  It's mind blowing.

I remember when we were young, time seemed to pass so slowly and I wanted it to hurry up and go faster so we could be married already and have our house and 2.5 kids and a dog and a white picket fence, etc.  Somewhere along the way time sped up and the road map changed a bit, not in a bad way however.

And now here we are and I LOVE where we are and yet time seems like it moves faster with each passing day.  And I wish it wouldn't.  I try my best to savor every single moment.  I wish with all my heart sometimes that we could just freeze time for a little bit.  But I know that's not possible either.

This journey has been such a gift to me so far and I know that it will continue to be that way as the years continue to go by.  My goal is to just keep taking it as it comes and stopping to appreciate the moment as much as I can.  I don't know where the journey will go next, but I certainly have no regrets so far at the stops we've made along the way.  As long as we're together we can weather any storm and chase any rainbow.

I don't mean for this to sound down or melancholy-like.  I just find myself especially retrospective on this anniversary this year.  Maybe it's the fact that as of late I've observed the power of how precious love is, how precious life is and how in just the blink of an eye those things can be forever changed and taken away.

So time.  Slow down a bit so I can appreciate just how blessed and lucky I truly am.  It's not something I take for granted even for a second
