Wow! Where has the time gone? Yesterday, Alan and I had our 5 year anniversary! We celebrated all weekend long starting out on Friday night with our traditional anniversary dinner at...
We got the "Big Night Out" dinner for two and it was perfect!
Saturday (our actual anniversary) we enjoyed a relaxing day together. We slept in (yes 8 o'clock is sleeping in for us) ate breakfast and went to the farmer's market. We did a little shopping and then ate lunch at Chick-fil-A (all I will say on this blog is that we will continue to support this company) and then spent the afternoon watching the Olympics. Go Team USA! We dropped by a baby shower for Kristy & Jay who are having a precious little girl in September and then went to...
which will "officially" open in Bearden on Monday! Our sweet friend, Jean, works in marketing there and invited us to the grand opening shindig. It was packed! We had a great time and bumped into a few friends while we were there :)
On a more sentimental note: I am so blessed. The past 5 years have flown by and we have had a blast. Sure- let's be honest, there have been some tough times, hard decisions to make, and a few big fights, but there have also been times where I have never in my life felt more loved and times when loving someone else has brought me more joy than I ever thought possible. So may the next 50+ years be just as special as these first sweet years and bring us even closer to each other and to our Lord. Cheers!
We have been surrounded by family and friends from the beginning
My favorite day...without a doubt!
