Yesterday was Spencer's and my 5th wedding anniversary! It's amazing to think that we've been married for so long. At the same time, it feels like we've always been together. Probably because we almost always have. We've been friends for 12 years now, and we started dating 9 years ago. Nine! Spencer pointed out that another 5 years and we will have been together in our lives longer than we've been apart. What an amazing thought. We didn't have a lot of money to do anything extravagant this year (economy is still getting to us and all our extra money is going to my education) and my mom just had surgery again so we didn't really have a babysitter at our disposal. So last night we waited until Evie was asleep and then my mom (wonderful as she is) stood guard over the sleeping child (who graciously stayed asleep) while Spencer and I went out to dinner at Rodizio Grill. I put my diet on hold for an evening and just enjoyed the occasion. I had a passion fruit martini and gorged myself on grilled pineapple. I enjoyed making Spencer's gifts this year. He's always teasing me about getting on pinterest but he sure enjoyed getting presents inspired by pinterest projects! I made him one of those "52 Things I Love About You" things out of a deck of cards, and I made a chalkboard print that kind of chronicles the last 5 years of our lives. I framed it in white and it's going on our wall in the living room. The last five (9/12) years have been so amazing, I can't wait to see what the rest of our lives have in store for us!
