For some reason that feels like a long time. So much longer than 4 years. Maybe it is because I probably can't call us newlyweds anymore. Although I don't think we have felt like newlyweds in a VERY long time.
I just can't even believe all that the last 5 years has entailed:
- Phil's dad's Liver Cancer
- The PE Exam
- Thyroid Cancer (diagnosis, LID, RAI)
- Cancer Free
- A puppy
- Getting pregnant
- Having a baby
- Losing Phil's Dad
- Buying a house
- Phil finishing his PhD
What's funny is that when we were picking out the song for our first dance, we kept going back to Steady as We Go by Dave Matthews Band.
And the basic message of the song is that no matter what happens, we'll get through it. Steady as we go. And that's exactly what the last 5 years have been.
I know everyone says it, but I really did get the best guy out there. Through everything we have been through, Phil's been an absolute rock. He works hard. He's kept his focus. He's kept us on track. He's kept me going when I didn't know if I could. He goes along with my crazy ideas. He is kind (everyone likes him more than me). Marrying that guy was, without a doubt, the best decision I ever made.
Phil, I'm so glad I followed you around at Ryan's birthday party. :) I love you! Thank you for being amazing during 5 of the best and hardest years of my life. Here's to 60 more!
