By the numbers…. (approximately…)
1 month and 3 days ago we welcomed our first daughter into the world.
5 years 8.5 months ago, 5 years 5.5 months ago, and 4 years 11 months ago we welcomed our adorable kittehs into our home.
8 years ago we said I do.
8 years and 10 months ago we bought our first (and only) place together.
11 years ago we moved in together.
11 years and 4 months we figured we’d make it official (I guess the equivalent of changing your facebook status to “in a relationship” nowadays).
13 years 6 months ago we became best friends.
14 years 11 months ago we rode the plane from Honolulu to Boston with our mothers.
15 years 4 months ago I walked across my high school campus with one of my besties when she stopped to wait for another classmate of ours (and a friend of hers) so they could go to one of their smarty-college-level classes together. (Needless to say, I was NOT in that class). I cannot remember what we talked about but I remember that I said something funny (because I’m hilarious, of course) and I hadn’t thought he was paying attention, but he laughed.
17 years 6 months ago I was studying in the hallway of a high school building for American Lit with a couple friends when we heard strange sounds coming from the nearby men’s bathroom. So we went to investigate (of course). It turned out to be a couple of our classmates, one of whom was cutting the other one’s hair. Ryry (as he was known back then) was the one getting the haircut. *Also let’s take a minute to revel in one of the few stories out there where I was being more studious than Ryan.
Ryan, thank you for 8+ years of wonderful memories (and a lifetime more to go)!
