Last Saturday Nick and I celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary. I very much enjoy walking down memory lane, thinking of that significant day in our lives, all the things that led up to it, and all the places we've walked since. Our life together has been pretty awesome, and I couldn't ask for a better partner, co-parent, and best friend to walk beside me in this wild and precious life.

The night before our anniversary, we had a wedding to attend. That was magical all in itself, celebrating the union of newlyweds at the same time as celebrating our anniversary. We weren't able to secure a babysitter two nights in a row, so we had to celebrate a night early. We left the reception after dinner to sneak in a little date before we had to be home.

We hoped in the car and didn't really know where to go. We were stuffed to the brim, so the thought of grabbing dessert wasn't too appealing. We took the road less traveled towards home, which led us right to the site of our wedding reception five years earlier. Being that it was a golf course, we made a spontaneous decision to slip inside and grab a drink.

Sometimes the best plans aren't having any plans. Spontaneity is fun.

Where we ended up couldn't have been more perfect or symbolic. We talked about our wedding, how we crammed 175 guests in that tiny little club house, how flippin hot it was that day. We talked about how glad we are for the obstacles that have brought us to where we are today. And we talked about our future. We dreamed together. And that may be just one of my favorite things to do with him. To look ahead with excitement, and make a semi-concrete plan to get us there. He's a good man. A hardworker. Handsome as all getout. I love him.

Saturday morning we awoke and decided we were going to celebrate our anniversary with a family adventure. Something we talked about doing all spring and never did.

We went golfing. It was awesome. Everyone loved it.

Our score keeper.

Sister's got some skills.

But her Mama? Not so much.

Jokes on me.

Doodey was just happy to run around and chase the balls.

We ended the day with a family movie night of watching our wedding video. It was so fun to show that to Nugget. What a great day. Perfect in every way.

Happy Anniversary to you, my Mr.

So happy to be your Mrs.
