Established


It could be argued that we were established circa 1982, when we were in preschool together, sharing our favorite Eeyore doll or playing side by side under the cots during nap time. Or, as fifth graders, on the farm - swimming in the river, riding wave runners and driving golf carts. Or on July 4th, the summer before our Junior year, watching fireworks, in the sky and in each others' eyes... all these things certainly contributed to a firm foundation.
Perhaps "Jenni and the Betz" was established as we sang and danced together, partners in Show Choir, and in crime (somewhere, there's a large stash of of road signs to show for that). Or, over the course of four years at different colleges, maybe the never-missed-a-weekend visits established us. Adopting a dog, committing to raising Colby together, may have had something to do with forming a stable base.
In 2002, our wedding made us all official like. Buying a home, constructing and finishing the basement, definitely helped us feel established. Adding two feet, and then adding two more... that's what really did it. Growing our family gives us kind of a settled feeling, a permanence. We've got a good little plot right here to live on...
