It is the first anniversary of my ongoing relationship with the love of my life. As we continue to grow, I discover new and exciting things each day. What was once just an affair of convenience has become an extension of my very being. I almost can't remember just how I got along before my Iphone 5.

The limitations of the landline became evident to me in my early married life. At 1365 Rock Court, in the late 1980s. it was becoming apparent that a more portable form of communication might have its place. As we were expecting our first baby, being able to reach in the Baby Daddy became vitally important. Derek worked on construction sites at that time and , like every other responsible, new-to-be father, he strapped on a "beeper" and waited for the beep. It was even a high tech pager, which VIBRATED when it rang, in case the construction equipment drowned out the closely anticipated beep. We hoped so much to use it. The plan was that when I called Derek's office, they would then page him on site. He would then go somewhere to find a pay phone to call into his office to get a message with a location where he might then call me. It was so smooth and efficient. our daughter was 2, by the time he found us.

Something better was yet to come. Although it seemed that communication was becoming simpler and easier to maintain, were we ever truly ready for the exponential take-off that was yet to come?
