5 Wonderful Years

Yesterday Marvin and I celebrated 5 years of marriage. It is hard to believe that time has gone by that quickly. Anyone who is married can attest that it only gets better. I didn't quite understand that concept 5 years ago, but it is so fun to look back and see how closer we have grown together. It is fun to think that 5 years ago I didn't know about his sleepy "it's time to get up" sigh/stretch, or the way his eyes get big and smiles every time I make bread or his favorite foods, I didn't know that I would almost get goose bumps when I catch him staring at me and my pregnant belly. There are so many little things like that that make 5 years so much sweeter than the day we got married. We are so thankful to be able to journey together and I am so honored to have Marvin as my husband.

Every year we try to do something out of the ordinary for our anniversary. This year we decided to go swimming, it’s out of the ordinary here unless you want to go to the river. Some friends went to a pool at a hotel outside of our town last year and said it was awesome. So since it has been incredibly hot we thought that would be a great place to spend the afternoon. For a few hours we escaped Nineveh and entered an entirely different world. We had fun relaxing in the water and enjoying being outdoors for the first time in a couple of weeks.

Later we headed to one of our favorite restaurants in town that has little huts where you can eat at in the summer. It proved to be a great relaxing evening and we even had live entertainment that wasn't too bad. It was a perfect way to celebrate 5 years! We can't wait to see what is in store for us these next 5 years. Thanks to everyone who has supported us along the way.

Congrats on 5 years. It's pretty amazing isn't it? On our anniversary I always find myself looking back down the path Dad brought us on to find each other. I am so excited for you and the baby, you are looking great! Our little one arrived almost 4 months ago- a miracle as we didn't think we could have one. All is well and we are thinking of you often.

Happy 5 years! You guys are so great for each other. I think that it was certainly meant to be...for goodness sake, you were saying "starvin' Marvin" ever since high school. You look so great!! love you!

Hey you two! Happy anniversary! Dave and I just celebrated our 5 years the weekend before you, so when I looked on your blog, I was reminded of what we were doing the day of your wedding and why we weren't there! We were on our way home from our honeymoon. Remember how every weekend in the summer seemed full of Challenge weddings? Actually, this past weekend I was at Lindsay Walter's wedding and Kari Marshall was there (now Kari Breed) and also Ryan and Ging. Just add some crazy Texan boys and a Marvin and you have our D4 team! We seriously need to have a reunion!
Congratulations and may the next year of transitioning into parenthood be a blessing for you!
