5 Years

Today marks 5 years of marriage. In some ways {how we can complete each other's sentences, how we often know what each other is feeling without words, & how our family has grown in number, to name a few}, it feels like we have been married for much longer. In other ways {how head-over-heels in love we are, how we still manage to 'court' each other, how vivid the wedding memories are, & how we still have a hard time finding any 'pet peeves' with each other, for starters}, it feels like we are newlyweds starting our life together. But however you look at it, whether we've been married forever or whether we're still newlyweds, I am so thankful to be celebrating our 5th anniversary with the true love of my life!

Our lives have changed a lot over the past 5 years...from apartment life {with questionable neighbors} to building our first house...from driving across several states to find our {perfect} dog to driving across the county to welcome not one, but two precious gifts from God...from both of us working 8-5 all week {bringing much stability and consistency to life} to me becoming a stay-at-home mom while you work 6-3 {bringing much joy and faith to life}. The list could go on, but my point is, God has brought us on a beautiful journey together. We have had some up's and some down's...many blessings and some challenges...but most of all, we have had 5 years to grow closer to each other {even when I didn't think that was possible} and closer to our loving God.

Without getting all ushy-gushy romantic on here {you know, since this is a blog}, I just want to say that I love you more and more each day! I am so blessed to have you as my husband and best friend. Happy 5th Anniversary, Sweetheart!! I am looking forward to another 5 years...and another...and another...and...

It's been such a joy to be your husband. I hope you've had at least half the fun that I've had over the past 5 years. Looking forward to the rest of my life with you and our precious family. Happy Anniversary sweetheart! By the way....I LOVE YOU THE MOST!!! :)
