4 years ago today….

Its 2:15pm and 4 years ago, right now, I was scrambling around my house getting tuxedo stuff together. Four years ago today, there were a bunch of guys at my house swapping tuxedo pants, shoes, and shirts trying to figure out who was wearing who’s clothing. Four years ago today, there was a beautiful woman fitting into a white gown, smelling some purple and white flowers. Four years ago today, there were 150 of our closest friends and family gathering in a church.

Four years ago today, I married my college sweetheart, Emily. Talk about making smart decisions in life 🙂 Since that day, we have lived in two houses (plus a surrogate third floor dwelling of the Taliaferro house), been on two Caribbean Cruises, traveled to Seattle, New York, New Orleans, and St. Louis. We’ve watched her brother Brian get married, and helped Philip learn to drive. We’ve been on vacations with family, including my brother Sean, watched my sister graduate from college and then her double masters program.  And now, we are planning for our first child!
When you get into a long term relationship with someone, you may often wonder “Do I know what I’m getting myself into?”. (It was actually a question oft asked by Emily when I was going to meet her family for the first time. And yes, Phil, Love is a many splendored thing). But do I yet know what I am getting myself into? No, you never really know. Things can go completely wrong, can be boring, or as I have found, can be really exciting and enjoyable when you find the right person.

4 years … and while I may reminisce, I will never look back. Happy Anniversary Emily! I love you!
