Before the kids, chiefly. Well, technically Kid #1 was the size of a…raspberry, a couple feet out of the frame of the photo. Our last anniversary of Just Us.

Before free time was an object of lust. Before the absurd, quotidian perfection of watching them grow.

After a lot.  The wedding, the house, work drama, family drama. After some of the gut-ripping loss….but before most of it.

I could take the same picture now, our feet in slippers on the coffee table, and in ten years find it and write, “before all this…” I don’t yet know.
