seven years in seven photos

Marcus and I are celebrating our seventh anniversary. I can't possibly find the words to reflect on these past seven years--there are just too many memories. Instead, I've gathered seven photos, one from each year.

This was a difficult task, and I've had to leave out so many of my favourites. But it's a wonderful way to look back on the adventures, growth, and love we've shared since we met when we were just 18 years old in 2014.

A busy year! Marcus and I spent the summer in Montreal, the fall semester on exchange in Edinburgh, and our winter holidays in Barcelona. (This photo was taken in a Glasgow museum).

You and Marcus make a very lovely couple! While there are many special photos, I think my favourite image is the tin-type photo taken for your birthday in 2019. There is something timeless about it. It could have been taken at any period since the dawn of photography.

Every one of these resonates for me, Julia. It’s really wonderful to look back and feel how the years have passed.
