But really, it does.
Even though when I think about it, so much happens in all that time.
I just realized today that Trevor has been home from his mission for 3 years now!
I just dug through my old email and found some of the notes we sent each other the weeks before he left for the MTC.
At the risk of everyone gagging at our dorky mushiness, here's a few sweet little excerpts of our story from 5+ years ago:

I'm so proud of you!! I'm sure you'll love it, you'll be great! I can't wait to hear from you.. and send you your cake from across the street!
True confessions time: I never sent a cake.
I know, I know. I caught a lot flack for that and have since made up for it, I hope.
I was, however, completely twitterpated the whole week knowing that the love of my 16-year long life (that I had seen a total of 5 days ever) was right across the street being a missionary.
I knew this was something big, and I was right.
I should also mention that I left out the email in which he sent me a bunch of his sexy headshots. For my eyes only, sorry.
I'm so glad I have such a vast collection of emails and letters detailing our entire relationship. And I'm so glad this happened:
