August 22, 2003 - a thirteen year old boy asks me to be his 'girlfriend'

August 22, 2009 - I marry that same boy.

August 22, 2014 - I stand in the doorway of our Brooklyn kitchen with the stupidest smile on my face, on our fifth anniversary, telling the one who's always been mine about our happy surprise. We're up early packing for a trip to Niagara Falls and the house is hushed. I tell him we'll be taking an extra person along to Niagara Falls and he can't help but make his smile match mine. We stop for a moment and stand still against each other. Neither of us were prepared for this, but we're both filled with joy.
