a decade

Ten years ago today, Jon asked me to be his girlfriend. I essentially was, anyway, but today was the day we made it official.

We celebrated over the weekend by trying a new Thai place. It was EVERYTHING. So much delicious that I am already looking forward to going back.

The past 10 years, in numbers:
Number of cities we've lived in: 8
Number of apartments we've inhabited: 7
Number of houses we've owned: 2
Number of fights we've had: bordering 1 million (probably)
Number of pets we've owned: 2
Number of times we've laughed together: Quite a lot, probably near 2 million
Number of new types of cuisine Jon persuaded me to try: 2 (Thai and Indian)
Number of colleges we've graduated from: 4
Number of kids we welcomed into the world: 3
Number of vacations we've taken: 6

We were 18 and 19 when we got together. We had no idea what the future had in store for us or how insanely hard it would be to continue to make our relationship work, but I am so grateful that Jon has never given up on me. It certainly hasn't all been pretty - but I would never take it back.
