4 Years: An Eternity in the Blink of an Eye.

Scott and I celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary yesterday. He brought me beautiful flowers and gave me a really sweet card. I totally flaked and didn't do anything (I thought we were "officially" celebrating this Saturday). What's funny is that our 10 year date-iversary is coming up in October, and to me, that is even more monumental. I mean, that's almost a third of my life - that's a long time!

In some ways, it feels like just yesterday that we got married. While that day now ranks 3rd in the "happiest day of my life" department, behind the births of Max and Cam (tied for 1st, thank you very much), it was still a wonderful day. Mostly, it feels like it isn't possible that so much could have happened in just 4 years. Let's see, we've had two kids, both changed jobs twice, dealt with four major health crises with our parents (one each!), Max has had surgery twice...and that's just off the top of my head.

I won't say it has always been easy or fun, because it has been a lot of work. I will say that the work has been worth it, and that I know we can tackle anything as long as we do it together. I love him more today than the day we got married and I will love him more tomorrow. There is something very sexy about a man who changes diapers without complaining and will get dressed (after he has already gotten in his pajamas) to go pick up Thai food. Scott may not be handy, but he has a heart of gold. Tomorrow he is taking me away (sans kids) to Niagara for a night. We are staying at the B&B where we stayed when he proposed, and going to dinner at the restaurant where he actually proposed. And going to all my favourite wineries...and I'm going to the spa. How lovely is that?
