The past Wednesday was mrw42 and my four year anniversary! Our relationship has gone through a lot of changes over these four years. There have been so many changes in that time: living together, our wonderful little Zoe, the other kids continuing to grow up. There have been changes in our relationship too: more security, deeper knowledge of each other, and more shared experience. While the sense of wonder has changed too, it's still present and as strong as ever.

We also have made it past our first spot of trouble. Not surprisingly, Zoe's birth and moving in together created a lot of changes. I think both of us were feeling a lot of insecurity, and I was feeling that we were not spending enough time together. In the past few months, we have built the communications skills to move past that and at least for me to overcome the resulting insecurity. I still wish we were able to spend more time together, but I think that may be true for most people who are as busy as Margaret and I.

I couldn't imagine my life without Margaret; I'm so happy we found each other!
