Five Years And Tomorrow

A friend from my college years recently sent me some pictures from our times together. The first one was right after our horrid geology field camp - it was the first time Laura tried sushi! So here are some of us geo gals with our mouths full of tasty fishies! Goodness, but I do miss SLC's sushi restaurants!

Then here are some lovely shots of my wedding. Ryan looks so young! I feel like such a cradle-robber!!!

P.S. - In case you are wondering about the title, it's from a song remix by Marmion. The song is called "Five Years and Tomorrow," and I believe the lyrics go something like this:

"I cried for five years
I was in tears for five years
I decided to make a difference
There was a call
A loving influence
Start tomorrow
But understand today
Get out of your sorrow
And meet the new way"

I may be misquoting the exact line here and there, but that's the gist. I always enjoyed that song 1) because it made for excellent driving music while I was commuting back and forth between SLC & Nevada (working on a mining claim), and 2) it always made me think of my life before Ryan - nearly 5 years in a horribly abusive relationship, and then I discovered a calling that took me far away and allowed me to heal and learn. I did get out of my sorrow, and I did find a new way of living.
