One night in Rome

We were celebrating our 5 year anniversary.  There was a lot to celebrate.  

It had been 5 years of hard work, late nights, travel (rarely together), studying, distance, disagreements, make-ups, changes, graduations, stress, new jobs, promotions, realtors, open houses, apartment hunting, moving.

That night in Rome...
after an amazing dinner
walking back to our hotel
being lost and happy about it
feeling that you were the only two people on the ancient streets
after a day of wandering through an amazing city 
with many more days ahead to explore... 
I thought "This is the happiest night of my life."

That wasn't true, but it will go down as one of the greats.
