6 years...

of wedded bliss. Okay, maybe not nonstop bliss, but really, this past year has been pretty spectacular for the Knight and me. For US. Perhaps the impending birth of our baby girl has drawn us even closer, but I also think it has to do with our current level of comfort - with ourselves, with each other, where we've been, where we are in life right now, and where we hope/plan/dream on going next. I like that when I think about "us," I don't just stop with the two people who fell in love 9+ years ago. I now think of "us" as our family - a unit including a momma, daddy, and two hysterical and maddening furbabies. Pretty soon, the humans will once again outnumber the furry family members, and then our "us" will grow again.

Our "us" has spontaneous jig-fests in the kitchen, devours fruit salad and oreos (often at the same time) at an Olympic pace, and trains for and runs marathons/half marathons together. The lines continue to blur between the titles "in-law," "family," and "real friend" for our "us." I love that our "us" tackles our problems together, can get through tough conversations without melting down, and still knows how to kick back and have fun with the best of 'em.

Whatever our "us" faces in the future, I'm pretty sure that "us" is gonna make it.

To the Knight and his Maiden,
