Things I’ve Been/Done for Longer Than I’ve Been Married

This last Saturday the 3rd of October Jessica and I celebrated our 11th anniversary.  I’ll be honest: there are very, very few things that I’ve done for 11 years.

  • I went to school for more than 11 years.
  • I Lived in Carson City, Nevada for more than 11 years
  • I  have been a Christian for more than 11 years
  • I have generally had some form of (nasty or better) facial hair for more than 11 years
  • I have played the Piano, Drums, Bass and Guitar for more than 11 years
  • I have been able to ride a bike for more than 11 years
  • I have now been able to drink alcoholic beverages for more than 11 years (by 8 days before our wedding)

Other things I have done for a long time, but not quite 11 years:

  • Work for Alt-N Technologies: 9 years
  • Lived in the Denver metro: 5 years
  • Had Abby as my daughter: 7 years
  • Had Evie as my daughter: almost 4 years

Its been a good, amazing, trying, growing, awesome, shocking, changing, unplanned, over-planned, under-planned, more estrogen than testosterone, prayerful, blessed 11 years.  And I can’t wait for whatever the future holds besides my bride.
