As of today, L and I have been married for four years!

The past four years have been a great learning experience. Being completely on our own on the east coast we have learned to how to give each other space and still enjoy large amounts of time together.

We have most of the time been each other’s only family and at times only friend. This has drawn us very close together. During this time we bought our first home, learned how to train a puppy, and bought a car. We have learned what our roles looked like as husband and wife, and how to balance our responsibilities since both of us work.

We are now ready and looking forward to learning what it is like to live as a couple near friends and family as well as to start a new life for ourselves, with new friends.

This past weekend we went to the  Fall Foliage Festival and picked up our annual apples, cider, and cider doughnuts.

It was great that this year there was no cold rain to dampen the fun, but the air was definitely chilly.

We plan tonight on going to, our new favorite restaurant in the area to celebrate.

Normally I make an elaborate apple dessert in memory of  our wedding in apple country in SoCal. But this year we do not have time for anything fancy. So I will probably make some fried apples to go with any leftover apple cider doughnuts.

The reason for our subdued and hurried celebration is that tomorrow afternoon we leave for Washington state for week long week to try to find a place to live. We are looking forward to exploring the area we will be living in.

One thought on “Celebrating 4 years

  1. Congratulations. I’m so proud of you and the way you have taken on the responsibility of being a Godly wife. You and Luke have a wonderful future ahead of you as long as God comes first in your life. Love you
