June 27th is a special day for us. It is the day we met. 5 years ago today.
It started off like any ordinary day. Being on summer vacation, I ran my errands as per usual, sat in bumper to bumper Capitol Hill traffic, and finagled my way into a minor fender bender on my way home. Traffic accidents are not my norm, and my blunder definitely clouded my mood for the day (and almost kept me from going out to a celebrate a friend's birthday), but luckily I changed my mind and ended up venturing out in spite of my traffic faux pas. And I can't even imagine how life would be had I not gone out. That dive bar birthday turned into one memorable evening - because I met you. Who knew that this was the night I'd meet my future husband.
This June 27th is extra special this year because it also marks the 2-month countdown until our baby's due date. What a journey these past 5 years just the two of us, and now we're bringing a new life into our little world, which will be a new adventure to take on together. It has been the best 5 years, living, laughing, and loving you. I can't wait for many, many more to come.
I love you to the moon.
