5 Years of Marriage

our 4 year anniversary | oh lovely day | photo by jennifer roper

Today is my 5 year wedding anniversary. It was a magical day and I love reliving it each year on my blog and reconnecting with my husband on a date.  The wedding details are lovely, the wedding planning is fun, but what really matters is the marriage and the love. In four years we’ve been through some stuff, had two babies (one just two weeks ago!), had successes and failures, had complete and total joy, and a few good fights, and through it all, we remember our vows every day (we had them put on a Paloma’s Nest heirloom bowl so we can always remember them):

I take you to be my spouse, my constant friend, and my love from this day forward.

I vow to be your faithful partner, in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, in joy as well as sorrow.

I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, and to cherish and respect you.

I will love and honor you all the days of my life.

    What a wonderful idea to put your vows where you can always remember them! Also, adore that shot with you hidden behind the parasol.

  •  Surprised this fella with a solo ice cream date after school today and it was good. The company and the ice cream.   Each one of my kids teaches me different things in different ways. Today this one taught me that two tantrums and a skipped nap do not a bad day make. Because despite his seriously trying my patience today we actually had a pretty good one. And his smiles are just the best ❤️ / Alternative caption: I want his bangs  #mommacalvinselfies #calvins3rdyear #battlefieldmotherhood
     Cure for this heatwave? Slowly walking around in air conditioned Trader Joe's and buying all of the mini pumpkins  it worked for a little while.  When it's hotter than blazes you wear your most tropical outfit  #quincysweekbyweek #35weeks
