It's time for another Throw Back Thursday!
When Matt and I first starting dating, we did lots of mini road trips. We would spend an entire day just driving around and hiking. On this particular weekend, we went to Jay Cooke State Park, which is really close to where we live because it was a great day and Matt worked for the first half of the day. He had just bought his Jeep a few weekends prior, so this was our first trip with it. I'll be honest, when we got rid of the Jeep just this past summer, I was really bummed out. A lot of great memories were made in that vehicle. *sigh*
But, I'm told, marriage is about each person growing and changing. I have to appreciate the way Matt is now. I can tell stories to our children about what their dad was like when he was younger. It's only sad they won't get to experience this version. But I look back on these pictures and I hope our kids look at them and think, gee- my parents were really in love. Because we really were. I can say a lot of things about our journey so far, but it will always start with how in love we were. We still are, it's just different. I think as we age, we find different kind of love. Different things fill our cup, so to speak. Regardless, I do enjoy looking back at these pictures. I do miss my old Matt, but sometimes I feel like I've met a new person and I'm starting from scratch and that's kind of nice too.
