5 years ago on a beautiful September Saturday I got to marry this guy. I seriously cannot believe that it has been FIVE years already since we were married. I remember that day like it was yesterday an it still holds its own as one of the very best, most fun days of my life. Everything went great, I loved my dress, my flowers, my bridesmaids, and groomsmen, I was so excited to finally be marrying Joe in front of all of our wonderful family and friends.
Since our wedding we have had so many great memories as a married couple. We traveled hundreds of miles on the bike, we've cruised, we've built our first dream home, we've camped, we've gone to concerts, and we've also done a lot of just enjoying each other's company at home with our pup and our cat. Not every day has been perfect or memorable, we live a normal every day life with a pretty boring routine, but that is what marriage is about. We have stuck together through those mundane days and through the days when things have gotten crazy, hectic, and emotional.
I definitely thought that we would have kids right away, but we got to enjoy five kid-free years together just being married, being able to go and do whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted, and now that is going to change, but in retrospect, I am really happy that we were able to do that for so long. Now we are going to be starting a new chapter and a new human life will be put first before our own and I can't wait to become a parent with this guy by my side. I know it will be so hard and such a challenge, but I think it will probably be one of the most rewarding things we will do together.
Happiest of wedding anniversaries to my love.
