7 years and 5 years

Today is the 7 year anniversary of my first date with Doug. We don’t buy cards or anything like that but I do get nostalgic. We had our first date at Brooklyn Bridge in Germantown and I remember being very nervous and drinking a ton of ice tea and trying to sit up straight. 5 years ago today Doug and I got engaged at the Brooks Museum here in Memphis. His proposal involved pulling my engagement ring (that we had picked out together months before) out of his pocket and handing it to me, such a romantic. We’ll celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary in February. It seems like it has been ‘not that long’ and ‘forever’ ago. I can barely remember what it was like before we were together. People always say this but only because it’s true, the older you get the more quickly time passes.
