4 years.

October 7, 2009

This post doesn’t go up until midnight because today I’m taking my first day of vacation since last Christmas and Jana and I are celebrating our 4th anniversary.  Every anniversary I get a little reflective and nostalgic.  Four years isn’t much time but Jana and I have had a whirlwind four years.

Everything’s been fast for us.  We met on a blind date, got engaged 4 months later, and were married 4 months after that.

Then we got married, moved in together, moved to Louisville, and started Youth Ministry at First Baptist Church, Mt Washington (in that order 🙂 within a span of 6 days… and the rest has been about the same pace.  The incredible thing about Jana is that she’s one of those incredibly rare people that the more you know them, the more you respect and appreciate them.

There’s about a million to one shot that Jana will read this since we’re taking a day together today, but I love you Jana.  This year has been so much fun – looking forward to the next few decades together.

    Thanks everyone! It’s been an amazing 4 years. It’s definitely been an adventure, but I wouldn’t want it any other way, and there’s no other person that I would rather spend it with. Love you Josh!
