5 Years in the Marriage Tank!

That's right. Today is our 5th anniversary. Five years ago today I was getting gussied up for our wedding, counting down the moments until I would be Edwin's wife. I was nineteen. I don't recommend that most people get married so young, but for me it was the best possible decision. There are no regrets, only joy. I've spent 20% of my life married to Edwin, and it is my sincerest hope to see that number hit 80% and higher. There's only one way to get out of this marriage, and we're taking our time getting to it.

Here we are right after moving to Louisville our first summer after getting married. That would be Emma the cat in my arms.

Just before our first anniversary at Thanksgiving.

This is Christmas, 2005. I'm great with child, that would be DeLaynie, at this point.

January, 2007. Here we are in front of the White House. It was cold. Check out our poor snow baby.

Last Thanksgiving. I am quite pregnant in this picture. DeLaynie looks so young!

This year, just after decorating the Christmas tree at mom and dad's new house. We couldn't keep a clip in DeLaynie's hair, but she is a girl, I assure you.

Happy anniversary! DeLaynie does look really young in the second to last pic. But she also looks really old in the last pic! Edwin looks basically the same. He's going to be 50 and look the same. I can't imagine what it's like to get prettier as you get older. I'm going down hill fast. You are much prettier at 24 than you were at 19. Not that you were ugly at know what I mean. Right? I just shouldn't type.

We hit 5 years last July. It made me so happy to realize "5 whole years! And we still like each other!"

Does it make you feel old? it did me a little bit, but in a good way :)

Congrats on reaching the 5 year mark!
