5 Wonderful Years

Today Andrew and I are celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary. He woke me up this morning asking if I was ready to start having We had "planned" on a 5 year baby plan. You can see that didn't work out and that's ok with us. Today's weather reminds me a lot of our wedding day. We had planned for an outside wedding and I woke up that morning to a cloudy overcast sky. The water poured as soon as we got to the house (we were getting married on the porch of an antebellum home) so we had to move the wedding inside the church. Thank goodness for a backup! As soon as the wedding was over, the sun came out and it was a beautiful day. We had planned for a carriage to pick us up after the wedding and ride us around downtown. That was the only thing "planned" that worked out that day :) Funny how plans change through life.
Andrew and I don't usually buy each other gifts on special occasion....Valentines, Anniversary, Christmas...etc. I wasn't expecting anything this year. I woke up and walked into the living room and there on my coffee table was a purse I've been wanting for a long time! What a surprise! I totally was not expecting it. He was proud of himself...and he should be. I got a new bag that I can't wait to fill. He also gave me a toothpick. I didn't understand it until he told me that on your 5 year wedding anniversary you are suppose to give/get something wooden. He's so I am keeping it because it makes sense and it makes me laugh. :)
We are going to the Melting Pot tonight for some chocolate fondue, my favorite, and going to see a movie. Date nights are always needed!
On a serious note, I couldn't be more blessed than I am today. I have a wonderful Christian husband who has given me two beautiful babies. I thank God for everyday that I have with Andrew. He completes me and the life I've prayed for.


  1. Happy Anniversary! There you go with some more blonde photos! I really like the first photo of your post. Hope ya'll have a fun date night!

  2. And that was just 2 years ago! I've only been brunette for a little over a year. Thanks! We went to the melting pot and to get movies to watch at home. Nice night to stay in and watch the Red Sox :)

  3. Happy Anniversary you two! Enjoy that toothpick! hahaha!

  4. Oh yes, I remember that rain and how thankful we were for a back-up plan ;) It's so amazing to see where you two are now 5 years down the road. You're such a great couple, and the Lord has definitely blessed you two. Congratulations! Mmmm.. and I'm jealous you went to the melting pot. So good!
