As of today, Zach and I have been married for four years!
I’m not going to lie. We’ve both been having a rough week. So it does, in fact, feel like it’s been four years. Or longer. (Though, to be fair, we’ve actually been together for 8.5 years, which may be why it feels that way.)
The weird thing about spending every day with someone you really love is the way time moves. Some people like to say it goes by too quickly and they wouldn’t be wrong. When I realize it’s been nearly a decade since we started dating, I have trouble believing that much time has gone by. But then I think of all the things that have happened since 2006, remember how I felt at the time, and think, “It’s been only that long? Are you sure we’re not closer to 15 or 20 years?” Time has a way of seeming painfully slow while you’re in the moment. Once it’s over, it feels like it happened too fast. It’s an incredibly strange feeling.
Anyway. This is the second anniversary we’ve celebrated since I started this blog! Last year’s project was a bunch of paper hearts cut out of our wedding song (which I typed up and printed) and attached them to a picture frame.
This year, I’m working on something that…isn’t quite complete. So I’ll show you some previews.
This isn’t finished yet. As you can see, it has some rough spots. But it’s part of a larger project I’m working on.
Hint: rose gold metallic paint will be a theme.
I’m very excited!
I also wrote a blog post over at CWB about seven things that went wrong on my wedding day that are now hilarious. Hop over and check it out!
Do you have any stories to tell from your wedding?
