Big week last week: it was James's birthday, followed a few days later by our ten (!) year wedding anniversary. I feel very lucky to be in such a supportive marriage, with two kids to show for it no less, wow. I've been taking some downtime, feeling reflective because I can't believe that time is, as always, passing so quickly. It really is crazy to be beyond the horizon I saw on May 20th, 2000--I knew that I was entering into the soon-to-be realm of parenthood, home ownership, and a good life with James, but of course it was hard to picture the details. It was exciting and scary and everything all at once. To now be in the place I had imagined and have it be my normal, everyday life is almost inconceivable. Here's to the present.
