This past month has been full of celebrations. My first niece was born, and after scary complications she is home and thriving. My husband finished his MBA at Wright State. And we celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary.
Both my husband and I are the romantic type, and we love to reminisce, especially about Wright State University.
To celebrate Jacob graduating (since he won’t get to have his actual ceremony until the school’s December commencement), we walked around campus and visited all of our favorite spots: the library, the old writing center where we worked together, the engineering and liberal arts buildings, and the classroom where we met.
It’s amazing how much Wright State has been a part of our lives. It’s where we met. Where we worked together and lived next door to each other. Where we had our first date and first kiss. Where we said “I love you” for the first time. It’s where Jacob proposed and where we planned our future together. Best of all, it’s where we got married.
After seven years and three degrees between the two of us, Wright State has become my favorite place in the world.
To celebrate our anniversary, we also were nostalgic and did what we alway do on our anniversary—recreate parts of our honeymoon. We went to the Ohio State Fair and saw Casting Crowns in concert. Then we went down to Cincinnati for a night, doing a riverboat tour and staying in a riverfront hotel.
All of these places hold so many special memories for me. I love getting to walk down memory lane with Jacob every year as we celebrate our anniversary. I can’t believe we’ve already been married for three years! I know there will be many, many more years to come filled with even more special memories and places.
We had to say goodbye to Wright State, but now we’re stepping into our future. We’re an aunt and uncle now. Jacob has two college degrees and will be starting his third at the University of Cincinnati next week. And we’re starting our fourth year of marriage more in love than ever.
I’ve really enjoyed taking a break from work and celebrating all of these occasions, but now I’m feeling nice and refreshed and ready to get going on my work-in-progress!
