Ready for a gushy post today? Cause that is what you are going to get!! May is always one of my favorite months, summer comes, school is out, and we celebrate our anniversaries! Our dating and wedding anniversaries are only 3 days apart! Which was to make sure that Simeon remembered when our anniversary way! If the 20th hadn't been a Tuesday in 2014, it probably would have just stayed our only anniversary, but we weren't going to wait for a year that made the 20th a Saturday! It wouldn't have been until next year!
Anyway, lets take a trip down memory road. . .
THEN - 2 Year Dating Anniversary
Simeon and I had both just finished our first year of college when we went to celebrate our 2nd dating anniversary. I think we went to a movie and Simeon's brother college graduation party! I was already done with the whole long distance thing and was ready for Simeon to come back and marry me already. Of course, Simeon has other plans and really wanted to get his Associate's in Bible from Grace University in Omaha. (Apparently he is really determined to live in Nebraska!)
(Excuse the crappy quality photos! Point & Shoot + Facebook download = grainy photos!)
Look at those two crazy kids! We thought we knew so much and were ready to take on the world together. Hahaha! I was just about to start my job at Records & Registration at State and sublease and apartment right above Simeon's apartment so that we could be together the entire summer. I was also taking two summer classes that made me completely crazy for the month of June. Ever gone through the entire Old Testament in one month? While learning calculus as well? It's crazy! Simeon was working for his parents the whole summer and spending the rest of his free time bugging me.
We started experimenting with cookings together and watched countless hours of Stargate. We made blanket forts and lied to the community pool so that we and Simeon's mom could get a family pass instead of paying double the amount for three individual passes. I honestly don't think we spent more than the hours we were both at work apart.
4 Year Dating Anniversary & Wedding Day
For us, the celebration seemed to last all week since we not only got married, but we were celebrating our 4 year dating anniversary as well!
We were so excited to start our lives together! And were going on our first big trip, just the two of us! We spent our honeymoon in Omaha (Nebraska. . . again. Seriously, maybe we are just meant to be in Nebraska!) so we could go see Wicked and spent the week walking the old market and picking out stuff for our new home together! But all those honeymoon photos I took are somehow gone! :/
2 Year Wedding & 6 Years Dating Anniversaries
Honestly, I still can't believe that it's been so long already! It seems like just yesterday we were planning our "perfect" day (which, if I'm being honest, I barely remember most of it since it was so crazy!) So much has changed in the last few years!
We graduated with our bachelor degrees!
We have the most adorable little puppy!
We are moving out of state on our own!
Simeon is about to start grad school!
I have started my own business, and while it works better for me to also have a part time job when we move, it's doing really well!
We've grown so much as a couple and know that we can still continue to grow as a couple as we grow older together.
