This Year's Love.

I can't believe that five years has passed from the time that Jason and I first met.

We have done so much together across the years, and there are still so many things that we have yet to do. It's kind of exciting, actually, but also a little scary.

For the first time in five years, I'll be spending our anniversary alone. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't lonely; even though I think I have coped remarkably well so far under the circumstances, some days it really does get overwhelming. I miss him. Lots.

But then I think of Jase all those miles away and I feel comforted, because in three short months, the wait will be over. The thought of getting off the plane and seeing him waiting there makes it worthwhile. (Hopefully he'll be waiting with chocolates.)

Plus, for the first time in five years we'll be moving in together, just him & I.

For lack of a better gift, I decided to put together just a little something to celebrate our last five years. And what better way to celebrate than with dorky (and possibly drunken) picture slideshows? Photographs speak louder than words ...

Happy Anniversary, Jase. I love you! (Psst, please let the video load before viewing.)

It's still the 20th over here... but HAPPY 5 Years.

Isn't it weird... to think about where you were 5 years ago?

Laurel said...

Aw... I love it!!!

It's hard to be apart on your anniversary, but you should feel good about how you and Jase are moving ahead in your relationship. It's an exciting time for you two!

That just made me tear up at work. Good job, love. And happy anniversary!

Umm, BTW, I didn't think that the SONG you played there was by David Gray. I just meant the title :) Lest you think I am a big musical dummy. Hee! Congrats again.

Seriously, I have tears. This was just gorgeous...and reminds me that I need to take more pictures of me and my darling husband and not just pictures of the dogs.

Happy Happy Anniversary!

janet said...

happy anniversary you cute little lovebirds!!!

Jen said...

That was sweet. Although I'm sure it would have been a lot better for Jason, (being the blunt Jen I am, it did get a bit boring watching the two of you in very similar self taken pics in the same pose, when I'd seen many of them before ;).) I liked the different and more candid ones. Plus I had to remind myself no one had died and to stop feeling sad (watched too many memorial videos I thinks). ANYWAY, you guys do photograph so nicely. I'm so glad you're still alive. Happy Anniversary!

kirby said...

a. Jason is incredibly tall.
b. HOW YOUNG DO YOU BOTH LOOK AT THE START!?!
c. How very sweet of you. I want to pinch both your cheeks and go 'aww', like a grandma would.
d. That picture you finished with is possibly the cutest/sweetest/grinworthy picture ever.
e. Congratulations

Oh my god, that just made me cry! I love it! Happy Anniversary! You guys are so cute! What song is that? I love it. The voice sounds familar, but I can't figure it out. It's not Lifehouse, is it? No...maybe not...

I couldn't watch all of the video because it was loading so slowly for me, but what I saw is so cute. Congrats you two!
That is such a beautiful song, and who would have thought something so wonderful could come from how you met. :)
