Chad and I are a few weeks away from our four-year anniversary, and I can’t believe how time flies. We were engaged for a year and a half before getting married, and dating for years before then, so it’s been a long, long time that we’ve been together. It’s funny that the four year anniversary is the one that’s sparking all this nostalgia in me, since it’s not even a “big” number like 5 or 10, but for whatever reason, I’ve been really sentimental about our long relationship recently.
And one of my favorite memories is one of the first few nights that we spent time together, hanging out in my dorm room and listening to Bob Dylan. It’s funny how so many songs trigger incredibly vivid memories, and for me, one of them will always be my future husband in linen pants and a tuxedo shirt, drinking boxed wine from my dorm fridge and listening to Tangled Up In Blue.
Sometimes I wonder what I would have thought if someone had told me, back then, all the crazy twists and turns that life would take in the years to come. It’s too impossible to even imagine, but I’ll say one thing — if I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t have changed a thing.
