A little voice inside my head said,
"Don't look back. You can never look back."
A day late, but for once, perhaps not quite a dollar short.
We are not date-obsessed people. We have spent anniversaries apart over the years. We passed 'couple' and 'handful' and are rapidly lazing our way toward double digits, and yet ... here we still are.
Perspective says how utterly young and naive we were on that day. We probably haven't learned much, but at least we have a mortgage to show for it.
