Five years ago today...

Five years ago we were here:


No, not Paris! HERE!!


We were there to do a little gambling...


Although I stuck to this... I can't count fast enough under pressure to play with real people... it's very stressful!

We were there to enjoy the sun...



And spend time with some friends...


And sample some seriously huge margaritas!



But mostly we were there to do this...


Yep, 5 years ago today Ben and I were married. A lot was different back then. We has less two less children and a car with only two seats. We were able to stay up past 10pm without getting cranky. Ben looked a lot younger (not me though, I obviously still have a youthful 22 year old face ;-). Now the combined number of seats in cars is 11, total children = 2. Plus a dog. We spend a lot more on diapers, and showering every day has become an unanticipated challenge. Sleep is shorter, patience is tested, and our lives are so full up with joy and laughter and love that I never imagined back then.


Happy Anniversary Super Love! I am so happy we got married way back then and love the life we have together that it has led to!
