We shared an afternoon exploring Stanley Park, in Vancouver, recently. Alex pointed out this sweet couple strolling arm in arm along the water and said that would be us someday. I had to creepily snap these images of our future selves.
Our first year of marriage was spent chasing the sun. The subsequent years were filled with high highs and low lows. Our anniversary trip to Hawaii was cancelled this week because of Hurricane Ana but how could we be upset when we were able to just get in the car and drive down the California coast? (We're also very relieved that no one was hurt and the hurricane was downgraded to a tropical storm)
I still can't believe I'm married, let alone celebrating a 5 year anniversary. Considering I thought I'd be a spinster, I am consistently surprised about how deeply we care, how we still laugh until our stomachs hurt, and how we continue to learn new things about each other. I wonder if it will be the same when we're walking hand in hand, in 50 years, perhaps with the aid of a cane. We could only hope to be so lucky.
