Four Years Ago Today…

Four Years Ago Today... | A Practical Wedding

Four years ago, we got married. Three years ago, we celebrated in Rome. Two years ago, you gave me a necklace at an Italian restaurant on a foggy night in San Francisco. One year ago, we picnicked by our wedding venue during my enormously difficult pregnancy. This year, in our design-y LA vacation rental, you made our baby laugh so hard he could only make squeaking noises and almost fell over.

Four Years Ago Today... | A Practical Wedding

When we got married a friend told us that she didn’t believe in marriage, and I pointed out that it was something that simply existed. I wonder now if we weren’t both wrong.

Marriage is something entirely new. We create it every day.

Here is to all the days in the world.

Love,
Meg

    Happy anniversary! Our first is on Sunday! We’re not celebrating as grandly as we’d like, because we moved to India for my job about a month ago and I haven’t been yet, but we’re together on this adventure. What more can I really ask for? :)
