Not sure if I totally believe this yet, but as of today, Donnie and I will have been together for four years. FOUR YEARS. I don't even know. Donnie and I high-fived on our 6 month anniversary because it seemed like such a long time -- and now four years?!
My love, I could not have ended up with a better partner. I look back at our four years together, that we've shared, and feel so honored to have spent it by your side. We lived in France together, we have an amazing family of three kitty-boys at our home, and an incredible immediate family made up of the best people we know. We got MARRIED, we have art nights, we run a business together, and we encourage each other to pursue really big dreams. It's just about the best that ever was.
Obviously, there's so much more to say, but I'm going to leave it at that. If you want to take a peek at the story of our early-dating years, here's Part I and Part II that I wrote on our dating anniversary last year. Perhaps someday I'll attempt to document the year when he moved to France with me, or the time we spent working 6 or 7 jobs between us, or the chaos that was wedding planning. Perhaps someday I'll talk about our favorite date spots, or our dreams, or our adventures. I'd like to share some of that, someday.
For now, I'm just going to say that I'm the luckiest duck alive, and I couldn't be more grateful to have a partner like Donnie by my side. Love you, D-Ray!
