Only in the past

Recently, I find myself starting many a sentence with the phrase "Do you remember when..."

Apparently spring makes me wistful and reminisce-ful. James and I have been telling our stories to each other recently, remembering the first time we said I love you, or the goodbyes and hellos from his trips in our first year of dating. It's kind of fun to remember those times, to cringe at the awkward/terrible moments, and to feel really good about where we are now.

I've also been reminiscing about college experiences--times when I got new nicknames, times when ordering ordinary breakfast food at Waffle House became embarrassing, etc.

I'm a 24 year old already living in the past. For now, I'll just chalk it up to the weather (which was gloriously sunny today, to make up for the snow. And our lawn is green! Yay!)

  1. We do this all the time, especially around days that have meaning or importance (like the day we call our first official day of being together, or our wedding anniversary).

    The nice thing about life is that the older you get, the more adventures you have (and the more adventures you have to reminisce about!)
