Five years ago yesterday I celebrated five years with the love of my life. I love that we were married in July...it's a great summer month and it seems to fit us well. We have been so busy trying to get settled into our new home (which we also agreed would be our anniversary gift to each other along with new sunnies for each of us) that we weren't able to do a huge amount of celebrating but thanks to my mom, we were able to sneak out for a quiet, romantic dinner at our go-to dinner spot, Jeff Ruby's. The steak cannot even be described with words and the dinner conversation was lovely. We discussed favorite memories over the past five years, goals for the future, our babies, etc. So nice.
Currently, we are in a rented mini van heading south for a little vacation with my family. The trip has been prolonged due to many diaper changes, nack-nack (snack) stops,breastfeeding breaks, etc. but I was just looking in the rearview mirror at my beautiful husband and thinking I wouldn't rather be anywhere else in this world than smashed between these two carseats with two sleeping, sweaty babies at my sides....trading winks with my driver. Our marriage is my greatest blessing. The past five years have been wonderful and I look forward to so many more.
(I'm ashamed to admit that I could not find one recent photo of the two of us. We must take some this week!)
I love you more than life, Thomas. Zipdog, I do.
