five years {& counting}

today, my husband and i celebrate five years of being married. five years! that's crazy talk. we've been together for almost nine, so five really shouldn't seem like such a big deal. but it is.

i remember on our honeymoon that we agreed that on our fifth anniversary, we would come back to the exact same spot {windjammer landing/st. lucia}. well, times have definitely changed. we were blessed with cayden last spring AND we were finally blessed with a new home just a little under a month ago. so suffice it to say, we didn't exactly have the funding to go on a big trip this year. but that's ok {we have a small beach trip planned for end of the month}. we love where we are in life and look forward to hopefully saving up for a big trip on our tenth anniversary. {who knows what might happen between now and then though.}

instead, we're going out to dinner – just the two of us. it'll be nice to relax for a couple of hours and talk about how we've come to be where we are.

sweetheart, i can't wait to spend the next five, ten, even fifty {if we're lucky} years with you. you make life so wonderful for us all...

{and a few photos from the big day. we look like babies!}

Happy anniversary! I love the grandma pic too. And the one of you two under the veil - I have a picture of my sister and I like that (not kissing, just laughing) and it's one of my favorites.
