Four years. In four years, you can complete high school, to which I paid very little attention. In four years you can graduate from college, which I did not, nor did I care to. In four years you can also build a life with someone you want to be with forever, which I have done, and I can certainly verify that I've put more effort into that than college and high school combined.

Rebecca and I celebrated four years together this week, and we did it quietly for the most part. Choosing to go out and celebrate tonight rather than on a weekday, we instead passed the time cuddling on the couch and watching me pass out on the loveseat at 9:30pm. From this, great romances are made, yes? But really, it was nice, as nice as any anniversary we've had, because it was calm and stress-free, which is sort of unusual for us.

We've been very lucky to get past some of the obstacles placed before us in the last four years, but at every turn, it seems like we've realized that it is worth the effort and the occasional troubles, if it means we get to be together. And isn't that what it's all about?

My friends Linda and Sally just celebrated their 17th anniversary together a few weeks ago. I have no idea how that feels for them, but I do know one thing: Rebecca and I really want to find out.
