A few interesting facts about our fifth anniversary...
-- this was the second anniversary that I wasn't 9 months pregnant, or 8 months pregnant or 6 months pregnant. In other words, I am usually pregnant on our anniversaries.
-- this was the second anniversary we spent without eating out.
-- this was the cheapest anniversary we ever celebrated.
-- this was the first anniversary I didn't get flowers.
-- this was the first anniversary that I got a set of china instead of flowers. (my idea.)
-- this was the first anniversary that Toby made the dessert for. (yes folks, I am serious.)
-- this was the first anniversary that grandparents kept the kids.
-- this was the first anniversary and time in history that we stayed home by ourselves with no kids for the night.
-- this was the first anniversary we spent in this house.
-- this was the first fifth anniversary we have ever celebrated.
-- this was the gazillionth time I've muttered to my husband with my arms around his neck as he sweetly looked down at me (11" of height difference gives him the advantage to "look down" at me all the time) "Can you believe we're married?"
After all these years, I still can't believe it happened to me. To us. Marriage is wonderful. And anniversaries are so fun. Especially fifth ones.
