yesterday we'd been married for seven years. sometimes it feels like we just met, other days it's like a world ago. i feel like the same, but then, when i look at photos i see me, but also someone else. sometimes i miss the one i left behind.
i don't walk around feeling older, but i can see we were younger. the skin around the eyes, the smiles on the lips. as much as i love what we have today, i feel a little bit sad when i look at us back then. the time that was, the no return.
to live is a constant goodbye to what was. most of the time i don't think about it like that, because i am busy saying hello, or preparing for new arrivals. that's what makes dates so special. they make us remember, grieve, and appreciate.
so, here's to seven more of both famine and great plenty, for better and for worse. together.
