Happy Anniversary to us...7/26/2003

I can't believe that today we are celebrating our 5 year anniversary! That seems so crazy to me! I can still remember the first time we met and that seems ages ago! We aren't doing any celebrating this weekend since family is still in town from Andrea's wedding yesterday (pictures to come soon! Such a fun day though!) So next weekend we are headed to Portland for 2 nights away from Lily! I can't wait! We will relax, sleep in (what's that like?!) eat out and swim. It is going to be so much fun!

I love my husband and I am so thankful for the godly man that he is. He is a wonderful spiritual leader of our home and is a fantastic daddy to Lily. I always heard people say they marry their best friend and I truly believe that. AJ is my best friend and we've grown so much closer within these last 5 years. I love that I get to spend every day with him! He makes me laugh all the time and when he wants to be creative he plans fun and special dates! But most of all I love how he encourages me in my walk with the Lord. I am so thankful for him! Happy 5 years AJ! I love you!
Such an OLD photo! Check out my super bad perm! And AJ looks like a baby! I think I was 19 and he was 25-he robbed the cradle! This was actually taken the night we said "I love you" for the first time! Awww :-)We had a very large wedding party! But so much fun to have everyone we love be a part of it!
The Kiss :)
Bubble tunnel!My parents rented this carriage for us to ride away in! I felt like Cinderella for sure!
