5 years and counting

We had our 5 year anniversary last week. I remember when we first got married and the idea of being married for 5 years seemed like such a long time. Now that we're here, I feel like we've been married for much longer....in a good way. I think it's because so much has happened in the last couple of years in our lives that normally would happen over a span of 10 years or so. Another reason may be that we have grown so accustomed to each other that it is hard to imagine life before we were together.
I'm not going to go all cheesy on y'all. I save that specifically for Jeremy.:) I did post a kissy face picture of us just because I know it makes Jeremy crazy, and hey....after five years, you've got to find ways to make your "spouse" (I hate that word!) cringe so that you can get a laugh. Don't be fooled, Jeremy is the best at this, but saves it for when I'm his only audience.
Anyway, we had a great anniversary. Jeremy planned the whole thing and I was so impressed. If any of you know Jer, you know that he doesn't pride himself on planning things or on being particulary romantic. Poor guy had to marry into a family where all of the men are rediculously romantic and apparently "ruin it for the rest of us". So, when he does it, I am always so proud of him. He really does underestimate himself when it comes to planning romantic things. He is very good at it.
So, here's to you, my lover dover. "You are the best" (said like Nacho Libre). And as for the next five years +, we better hold on tight and buckle up if it is as crazy as the last 5, which, knowing us, I'm sure it will be. Here's some cheese for you: How great and incredible to be married to your best friend who is just as weird as you are and loves you more because of it.

Happy Anniversary! Tell Jeremy that Dave's the black sheep of the family. He takes great care of me, but he's not that romantic. Anytime I tell him something romantic, he gives me this blank deer in the headlights look...poor guy. But these husbands of ours are so wonderful!
