a relationship in numbers

Five Years 

In 5 years we've had a lot of numbers. 

8 Christmas trees decorated. Remember when we used to decorate two per year. One at my apartment and one at yours?

7 airplane trips. I used to squeeze your hand so tight when taking off and landing.

6 graduations. We survived grad school!
1 romantic first anniversary dinner overlooking Boston (which I unfortunately, ahem..."redeposited" later that evening).

5 spoooooooky dinners.

8 weddings attended. 

2 ski trips. 

1 sunrise canoe ride after a very eventful night on the cape. 

3 trips to Bermuda. 

2 awesome cats. 

2 trips to the hospital. One each.

8 baseball games. (that I can remember)

0 days without talking to each other. 

1 sailing lesson. 

10 birthday cakes. You make the best.

1 evening ice skating on Frog Pond. 

3 fall getaways. 

1 home purchase. 

about 100 kitchen dances.
4 St. Patrick day celebrations.

4 summers on the Cape.

2 black friday trips after Thanksgiving dinner.

100's of evening walks. 

5 moves (combined).

2 deaths. 

8 babies born. 

1000's of skipped heartbeats. 

Countless smiles and laughs.
Immeasurable love.
