year four

If you missed year one, year two or year three you can go back and read them before you start year four!
We celebrated our 3rd anniversary with dinner and a movie. Also on our anniversary last year I found out I got the job in Cookeville. I found out that morning and I think we were both a little in shock all day that I would be moving sooner than we both had planned. We sucked it up and still had a great day together!! Matthew finished up his senior year and graduated with a degree in accounting, I started Tech in August. He turned 22 and I turned 21. Matthew started grad school in January and was offered a graduate assistantship.
