The Big 5 final paper is done, my roof is scheduled to be fixed tomorrow, my church curriculum is written and both boys are alive and - more importantly - sleeping. I can finally focus on the fun things, like celebrating our 5 year anniversary! Actually it is difficult to say we're celebrating because 1) This is our eloping anniversary and technically we agreed to celebrate the "second" wedding 2) Our wedding was on Leap Day (not on purpose) so it doesn't exist this year and 3)We have too much to do to actually celebrate.

Appropriately enough, I'll be spending our sort of anniversary officiating at a wedding - although it's kind of humorous that this couple is getting married after being together for 18 years and I married Robbie after two weeks. But love works in mysterious ways. Some days more mysterious than others....but I digress.

Just for fun, here's our "marriage by the numbers." In the last 5 years we've:

Moved 5 times
Visited 20 different states together
Dated for 2 weeks
Had 2 weddings
2 dogs
2 kids
And purchased 1 house that needs a whole hell of a lot of work

No wonder we're so exhausted!

I'm pretty sure the 5 year anniversary is the electronic slideshow anniversary, so here's a little something for my true love (WARNING, it's pretty long!):

  1. Hey, love the slideshow!! Ari watched it with me and kept saying, "oh, there's Daddy" everytime he saw Robbie...not sure what that's about. But Happy Anniversary anyway!

  2. I told her the truth, Wendy... its time Ari is properly introduced to his father. I can no longer live this lie...

  3. That was really beautiful! I miss you guys. Hopefully we can reschedule my visit soon. *hugs*
