5 Years

Five years ago, after almost an entire of year of playing the "Should we" or "Shouldn't we" game, after college graduation, a trip to Africa and a move to Boston on my part; college graduation, a move to Atlanta, and then a move to New Jersey on his part, The Pilot...who wasn't quite a pilot just yet...asked me to be his girlfriend.

We took selfies before they were called selfies.
For the first year, we kept the Mega and Bolt buses in business through countless trips back and forth between New Jersey and Boston.

At the end of that first year, he moved to Florida, and as a penniless flight instructor and a penniless grad student, we saw each other all of four times that year.

At the end of that second year, he moved back to New Jersey and became a pilot. We saw each other much more frequently, but still not as much as we would have liked.

That year, I finished grad school and we took our first trip to Europe, visiting London and Paris.

Right after our 3rd anniversary, we moved to DC together and the long distance finally ended.

Seven months later, he asked me if I would marry him. I said, "Are you serious?"

Two months ago today, on the fifth year of us being us, we walked down the aisle and promised forever.

Since it isn't really our anniversary anymore, I'll just say, 'Happy 5 Years.' Here's to the next adventure!


  1. So so sweet :) Happy 5 years to both of you!!

  2. Awww congrats! Long distance is super tough, you guys are meant for each other. BTW, We also got married after 5 years of dating.

  3. Happy 5 years together, and here's to many many more as husband and wife!! :)

  4. Yay! Congrats. I just love long-distance success stories. :) (And I definitely plan on celebrating our dating anniversary still even though we're married now. We celebrated it for 10 years - it can't just stop being a special day!!)
