22 Years Ago

22 years ago I was 22.
22 years ago I had finished my first semester of grad school.
22 years ago I was living in Reno.
22 years ago both my grandparents were alive and living in Reno too.
22 years ago I'd go to my grandparents' apartment every evening for happy hour (gin and pineapple juice).
22 years ago I'd go to my grandparents' apartment every evening to fix dinner.
22 years ago I had to blend grandma's food because of her esophageal cancer.
22 years ago I thought I was so grown up.

22 years ago I went to dress fittings.
22 years ago I talked with my mom and Jan about arrangements.
22 years ago I missed my bridal shower in Tennessee but my fiance went for me.
22 years ago I was excited about the new chapter in my life that was about to begin.

22 years ago today that chapter started.
And for 22 years I've been blessed with a wonderful husband, best friend, partner and soul-mate.

Happy Anniversary Hubby.
I love you.

A day late, but happy anniversary. Twenty two is a good number. I hope for two twenty two's for y'all again.
