On February 1st Lucas and I celebrated our four year anniversary. We started dating in 2008 at a time that became extremely stressful, yet an exhilerating time. Not many people understood the reason for my departure to a new boyfriend, a new career, and a new life at the time. I knew something durastic about my life had to happen though, and meeting Lucas allowed me to break free of the rut I was sitting in. He motivated me to tear down the barriers of my Norcoian life and do things that pushed my limits.
I had no idea where I wanted to be, what I wanted to do with my life, and what was next five years ago. But now I sit here finishing my last week of college, starting my green belt six sigma certification, and working hard in a career that I fought to have. I'm more excited for the next four years together and know from these past years that I will move past my previous expectations and we will do it together.
We have learned a lot, changed a lot, and had a lot of fun together. I'm excited to see what comes out of the next four years and the many adventures to come.
This is a recap of the last four years:
We traveled to London, Dublin, China, San Francisco, and New York
I finished my business degree
I started my career in process design and six sigma
Lucas started his masters in computer engineering
We went from omnivores to vegan
We bought a Leaf
We moved three times
We took 10,000 photos
