this weekend brian's sister and her husband came to town, and it also happened to be our four-year anniversary. while we usually go out to dinner (and will get around to that eventually), it was quite fun to spend the day with close friends. i've always enjoyed celebrating our anniversary, but this year it felt a little more special. now i know that first time i said something to him, his text message asking me to dinner, our awkward first date where i ordered wine and he ordered coke and i asked him a million questions, that first date where we ended up talking until 4 in the morning - that was just me getting to know my husband. and my husband getting to know me. i know we will have many more years together - spending this one with some of the wonderful people whose love and support helped get us to this point seemed fitting, to say the least. here's to four more years.
