5th Anniversary

5 years ago today my sweetie and I were married in a beautiful ceremony and then we celebrated like crazy with our family and friends. The next morning we left for our wonderful honeymoon in Maui, and upon our return we packed up and moved to Arizona. Never a dull moment for us!

I can't believe how much we've been through over the last 5 years. We've made a very comfortable home for ourselves here away from all we knew. We've enjoyed many trips and lots of sporting events and concerts. We've made new friends, and we have local family now. We've also dealt with my dad's devastating injury, our infertility, fertility treatments and medical expenses we never imagined, two miscarriages, our journey through domestic adoption, and finally life with our beloved boy. I truly hope that the coming years aren't nearly this eventful, but every bit as joyful!

And how are we celebrating? Well, our big celebration will come next month when we go back to California to stay at the Grand Californian, like we did on our wedding night. We'll also spend the day at Disneyland.

As for tonight, I'm sure to still be packing. Andy and I leave bright at early tomorrow morning for frigid and snowy Omaha. Maui sounds much better. Too bad my 100 year old grandma doesn't live there!

  4. Congrats to the both of you! We just celebrated 5 years last year, and though they have been filled with way too many eventful-but-not-desired things as well, we have loved every one of them that we've spent together. :)

    Have a great trip, and I hope you and Andy aren't too frozen when you come back!

  13. That sure was a great time had by "all". "Good times" is what I remember about that day. And all the events leading up to it (tea anyone?), too. Missing you from California. Isn't it interesting how life changes (some good, some bad, but all lessons).
    Happy Anniversary friend. Celebrating in my heart for you two.
