We were driving over the bridge towards our East Peoria apartment tonight.
I looked over at Ike and smiled - feeling much the same and grateful for the stirring up of old memories and the reminder of how precious it is to be married. A year ago right now, we lived hundreds of miles apart. Phones were our form of communication to bridge between the weekends we were able to be together.
Long distance relationships do have a sense of romantic beauty and story-like glamor in thought! Yet, my favorite memories of our engagement are definitely the times we got to spend together, in person.
Spending time getting to know Ryan, Alyssa and their sweet boys during that visit is a special memory.
Long distance selfies. :) :) :)
