6:18am. I look out my bedroom window to see the sky turning on, illuminating the silhouettes of trees in the foreground from the depths of the brighter background. The house still quiet, I lay silently and run through my 'to do' list for the day. After hitting the snooze twice, Tim reaches under my pillow and takes my hand whispering, "We've been together longer than we haven't."
And it's true. We started dating in 1994 and have been together ever since. 20 years. I can't think of anyone else I'd rather spend over half of my life with and beyond.
