Earlier this spring Matt and I realized we had finally been married almost as long as we had dated (six years, two months and two days, if you're wondering). The day we've been married longer than that seemed like a milestone worth celebrating, so we did the math and figured Aug. 15 to be the magic day.
But then we forgot about it, until today at lunch, when Matt thought of it. We knew it was sometime in August but couldn't remember the exact date. When we got back to the office we checked it out the duration calculator at www.timeanddate.com -- and we've already missed it by almost a week! Sad! I have got to get better about writing down dates in my planner. They just don't stick in my head.
It is crazy for me to think that we've actually been married longer than we dated, because it felt like we dated forever -- at the end of high school, all through college, and then an extra year. (Click here for the detailed timeline.) Of course, six years isn't long at all in the scheme of things.
I wonder what life will be like in another 2,274 days!
