8 years < forever

10 Jul

How can 8 years feel like forever (in a good way) but also feel like the blink of an eye?

From eating mashed potatoes in a hotel room after saying “I do” to fancy dinners on cruise ships to trashing the dress in Letchworth.

From camping and canoe trips to climbing mountains to swimming in creeks and lakes and the ocean. From running 5ks for bagels to running 50ks together.

From binge watching Netflix shows to going out to the movies (all three times we’ve been), from buying our first house to buying our forever house, from needles and tears and sadness to sandbagging and not-sleeping-because-the-house-is-gonna-flood-again.

From family parties to friend parties to Election Day parties to write-your-congressmen parties to derby day parties to 80s party to party just because we can and should, from friends’ weddings to family weddings to crashed weddings.

From puppy Picasso to old man Picasso.

that time Picasso got skunked. “hey man…you really killed the mood for your mom and me.”

From Buffalo to Rochester to Mexico to Costa Rica to Panama to Indian Lake to Bermuda to Letchworth to Ithaca to Florida to West Virginia to Ireland.
