Every day is so full, so busy, there's not time for much looking back and reminiscing. That said, our anniversary weekend is upon us, and I keep catching glimpses of life four years ago - how full it was of magic and happy and joy. If we had a live-in housekeeper we could probably be that way again, all the time. *sigh* Just kidding. There is still magic and happy and joy - it's just different. It's different when two become three, then four. The dynamic shifts, as you would expect when you make entirely new people and bring their wants and needs into the intimate inner workings of your daily life.
As much as I couldn't have imagined this life then, I can barely remember that life now. Everything is the same, but different. Better. So much better. Which is amazing, because it was unbelievably good back then.
