casually in 1997 at Princeton, NJ
maybe in 1999 but I can't really remember
grateful and sobered in 2001, a wedding in California
cautious and intrigued summer of 2002, emails from Georgia to Missouri and back again
curious and butterflied and ice cream in hand, fall of 2002
with his car full and dreams for a future, fall of 2003
with a ring and a question, winter of 2004
at the alter
four years ago
And now there are four.
And now there are Four.
