Five years ago today, we looked like this:


Now we look a little more tired.

We smell a little bit more like spit-up.

I carry a tissue in my pocket, not to wipe away happy wedding tears, but to wipe my child’s snotty nose.

Instead of a fancy wedding dinner, we’ll have peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Instead of dressing up and looking spiffy, we’ll be giving our kids baths and hoping we can catch showers later.

Instead of just the two of us…

It’s the four of us.

Instead of taking photos of us, we spend our days taking photos of them.

What I’m saying is — we were lucky and happy and had a wonderful time on this day five years ago.

But now?



More wonderful.

(And just a bit smellier.)

Happy 5 Year Anniversary to my wonderful, amazing, thoughtful, cute, happy hub!

LOVE you!

And us.

And them.
