12.12 a reflection

Everyone is aware that today is 12.12.12! To some, the date is just another set of numbers on the calendar, and to others it represents a once-in-a-lifetime-lucky-date that won’t happen again until 2101. To me, it’s the 3 year anniversary of the day I said “YES” to spending the rest of my life with my best friend.

On 12.12.09 Craig got down on one knee, and what started as a typical Saturday morning in our NYC apartment quickly turned into the happiest morning of my life; the official beginning of our journey together as S&C. Little did either of us know at the time, this journey would soon take on some of life’s biggest stressors in a very short period, including (in no particular order): getting married, the death of 2 close family members, moving to a new city, changing jobs, and purchasing our first house. And now we’re (eagerly) facing what will likely be the biggest challenge of them all, becoming parents. But through each up & down we have come out stronger together in the end and I can hardly wait for this next chapter in our journey to begin!

Happy 3 year engagement anniversary to my incredible husband, thank you for being you.
