This week I celebrated my 8th wedding anniversary. Every year, with each passing anniversary, I always find that I can't believe that much time has gone by.
Even though last year I celebrated my 7th, and I know that next year I'll celebrate my 9th, I know that I will still wonder, "where has the time gone?!"
Now, my husband likes to quip (jokingly, I hope), that it "seems longer" (back off ladies, this romantic is all mine), but I think that we both are surprised every time we think about how fast time flies.
Our big milestone this year is that our cats will be turning 10 years old this summer. This is like you or me celebrating our 50th, so I guess I'll need to whip out the good tuna and cream.
This morning I read about 'motherhood glances' over at as I see it now and again felt reminded: time does move fast.
Watch a few too many Law and Order episodes and there goes another year!
So this is a reminder. Spend time with your loved ones building memories to look back on.
The joy of living life with others is more satisfying than a "really good CSI" or a Thanksgiving Day shopping spree. No great mystery about it, but somehow, I still need reminding every once in a while.
Oh, and my husband got an A+ this year. He sent me 2 dozen long stem red roses from Everyday Flowers in Tustin. They are gorgeous and so perfect. Granted, he bought me roses because he didn't buy me a gift and when I gave him a small gift he felt guilty...but nonetheless, he sent me flowers and the other ladies in my office are jealous, and for this I give him full credit.
