The Last Four Years

Tomorrow, Brady and I will have been together for 4 years. There was no definite moment where he asked me to be his girlfriend but I wanted a date so that we could celebrate and have an excuse to go out to dinner. In fact, I think I'll make him take me out to dinner tomorrow night.

These past four years have been beyond jam packed. We have experienced so many milestones together and really the beginning of our adult, grown-up lives.

We graduated law school together.

We took the California bar exam, passed the bar exam, and were sworn in together as attorneys. In fact our state bar numbers are only one digit apart. Awww, how cute are attorneys in love?

We got a dog, our little Miss Mickey.

We got married.

We bought a house.

We got another dog, our little (ok not so little) Frankie.

And now we are having a baby! You'll have to wait till June for a picture of him. It has been a crazy past four years, and it definitely has not been easy at all times. But it has been a great four years and I'm so glad that Brady was with me every step of the way.

Sometimes I wish we had started dating in college. We started dating right at the end of law school so we never had any "carefree" time together. We went from studying for finals to studying for the bar to getting jobs to becoming attorneys and slaves to the billable hour. We've never slept in on a Wednesday and then gone to the beach to have margaritas at noon. We've always had to worry about some major life decision. Since we did not have the relaxed experience of college together I can tell you that we are going to live it up in retirement. I'm talking vacation homes in Chicago and Palm Desert, martini hour starts at 3pm after he's done with golf and I'm done with shopping, and lots of traveling. We didn't have college together but we are going to be those crazy, fun loving old people, golf cart and everything.
