Eight years ago today Lane and I said "I Love You" for the first time. 16 year old Molly had no idea how that high school relationship would turn out, but even then I hoped we would be together forever. Sometimes I can't believe it has been eight years. Other times I feel like it has gone by in a flash. How did we get from being two teenagers to the grownups we are today?
I am deliriously happy with my marriage. I think that the years of long distance have made us so strong. We can really appreciate the time we have together. Even years ago, I called our long distance relationship "practicing for deployment." In a few months I will put that to the test. I know that we will make it through just fine, but I am definitely nervous.
I wish I could go back and tell my teenage self how everything works out. I wouldn't do one thing differently. My year of being an Army wife has only made me more sure that finishing my education was the best thing I could have done. I am really happy with my life here, and my marriage is a huge part of that.
