tales of something simple - 38 weeks at 36 east state street

i believe

Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.

all types of chaos

38 weeks at 36 east state street

This is where it started.  It’s where we began.  36 East State Street.  It was this little hole in the wall apartment your Daddy paid $550 a month to live in.  He had this tiny creme colored couch from Ikea (I don’t think you could actually call it a couch actually it was so tiny and awful and hard), and an oven that would have killed you if you turned it on while the window was closed.  The door to the apartment was thin wood and anyone under the age of 83 would have surely heard every movement and noise inside from standing outside no less than four feet away.

This is where I first cooked dinner, where we watched our first rented movie, where we would snuggle up on a double bed that sat on the floor and talk about our dreams.  This is where we had our first fight, our first “I love you” and our last goodbye kiss before I left at 4am and drove all the way to Florida…only to return to a house he built four months later to stay for good.  This is the place I will always remember as magical–a place where new love blossomed and mature love outgrew.  We have many stories from this apartment, some of which you could piece together on old business cards which Daddy would use to write notes to me on the back of and leave taped to the front door.  It was silly and romantic and part of a time that I remember with such happiness.  This is the place where we started and back then neither of us could have told you that here we would be, six and half years later, bringing you to see it.  As big as we dreamed and as hard as we loved and as much as we planned, we never could have known the fullness of the life we would create over a series of days, months and years that followed. We never could of dreamed of such a beautiful you.

We could have wished for, but couldn’t have truly known what strength, what love and what genuine happiness our lives would become and mean as they joined together.

We couldn’t have wished for more.

We couldn’t have wished for better.
