Last night around 8:30pm, we pulled out of OKC on the road to Golden, Colorado. Steven took the first and last shifts. I only took a 2 hour one in the middle. Not that I slept much when I wasn't driving . . . but anyways. Davie slept the whole way - as planned. We pulled into Golden this morning between 6 and 7am (who can remember after all that). It wasn't until 10 or so that Davie took a nap - AND SO DID WE!
It doesn't really feel like a super special day because of all this exhaustion, but on this day exactly 4 years ago, Steven and I wed in holy matrimony. It is funny to think back to that exact day and remember how I felt about him, and thinking I know him so well and love him so much, I can't imagine that increasing. Laughable. I feel exponentially more intense about this man today than I did 4 years ago. We have changed together, grown together - been through life changing things, good and bad. It makes my heart break for marriages that end after years and years together - AND CHILDREN! Goodness gracious, how hard that must be. I love Steven as so many more things than a spouse . . . or maybe it's that "spouse" encompass all of those things.
For now, we are having a laidback evening staying with some guy friends in Golden. Maybe sometime this week, we can carve out some time to be together and think about this day 4 years ago.
