Earlier this month, on the 10th, Lucas and I celebrated our fifth anniversary. It's hard to believe it's been five years, but at the same time, it feels like we've been together forever. These five years have certainly been full of their ups and downs as every marriage is. We've had way more good times than bad times, though, and God has been so gracious to us. This fifth year has been just wonderful. We began our fifth year by finding out that our little baby would be a girl and ended our fifth year holding her in our arms. I can't think of any better anniversary gift in the world!
Our wedding day
We had planned to stay the night at the Omni Mandalay hotel where we spent our wedding night and first anniversary, but in the end, we weren't able to leave Emily overnight. Instead, we had dinner at The Keg while my parents babysat. After we came home and put her to bed, we watched our wedding video, which included a fun interview with us the week before the wedding. It was neat to get to go back and re-live all of that. I had ordered two miniature wedding cakes from our favorite bakery the day before, so we also got to enjoy a slice or two while we watched the video. It was a wonderful evening, and although we missed getting to have a night away, things turned out to be just perfect.
