Random ramblings on 10 years of marriage.

Phew...10 years. feels like 100. just kidding, kinda. Seriously though when we met 13 years ago that does feel like ages ago, I feel like we are such different people than we were then, obviously that's what growing up does to you! Except Andrew still plays xbox...he's not giving that up haha!! (nor would I want him too). So i felt this weird anxiety about our 10 year anniversary leading up to it, It just felt like such a big feat. Which is odd because nothing has changed and every year of our anniversaries we have just done dinner and never made a big thing about it, but 10 that's a big one! Over the past ten years its a been a challenge. I would like to say its been a breeze but a year after being married we got thrown into adulthood really fast when we were told our first baby had a 40% chance of survival, that right there is enough to make you snap out of la la land together and really realize something is so much bigger than you. I feel like the experience of Lincoln being so sick and having surgeries and going through all that trauma at such a young age really changed us, of course we still have fun and try not to take things too seriously, but that really put life into perspective for us. I am sure many parents have this feeling regardless of your child being sick or not, parenthood in its self is such an eye opening experience. sure we can make sure as adults we pay our bills on time, do a yearly doctors visit and show up to work, but being responsible for a child's well being and their entire life, well its a lot. Over the past ten years we have had our own struggles like any other couple, plus job changes, family and friend deaths, 2 other pregnancies and surgeries, and moving twice. Its been a roller coaster all right, but we have also had some amazing adventures, we have had some incredible travels in the world together alone and with the kids, great times with friends and family and of course our beautiful babies. Of course its not over yet, 10 years is so so short in the grande scheme of things and I am sure there will be some more trials (hello one day we will have teenagers), more travels and more love. ah that's what its all about.
