Two years ago today I married Mark. It seems like every year our lives take a drastic turn and when our anniversary comes around we are in a totally different place than we were a year before. The day of our wedding we were living in a beautiful one bedroom apartment above a metro station in the DC area. I had just been offered a new job a few days before and our lives were moving so quickly.
Fast forward a year.
At our one year anniversary I was so sick because…. I was PREGNANT! Very few people knew at this time and I was a bit of a hermit. It’s hard to be social when you are hugging the porcelain altar. Things were progressing at the job I had been offered a year before, and I was feeling like I was getting into the groove of things there. In anticipation of a possible pregnancy, Mark and I had moved into a two bedroom place slightly closer to where I worked, but we were still in Maryland. Oh, and we were both gearing to enter into a new decade (our 30’s!).
And this year….
This year our little one is with us and our lives look drastically different. For one, we no longer live in the DC area. Colorado and my family have welcomed us with open arms. I am a full time mom, medical coordination, and feeding nazi for Lyra. While our lives have been in a bit of turmoil with Lyra’s complications, we have stood together as a team. Sure, we argue and things have been quite stressful at times. But, at the end of the day, we know that we have each others backs. In the end, we always work together. I am so grateful to have him as a partner down this bumpy road. Life is a journey full of twists and turns. Sometimes we drive it, and sometimes it drives us. At least I know I have a partner to face those challenges with. When I have a bad day, he is there is help keep me moving. When he has a bad day, I try to do the same. I am so lucky to have him by my side.
