5 Year Wedding Anniversary

Today is my & the hubby's 5 year wedding anniversary, 5 years! I can’t even believe it!

I can remember so vividly the night we got engaged, it was December 15th 2007 and we spent the day/night in the city, I remember walking the streets and looking at the Christmas lights and window shopping all while the beautiful white snow fell on us.  Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE the snow, so having it snow on this night was so magical.  I remember we were going to go ice skating at the most popular area, Millenium Park, the wait was hours long so we decided not to ice skate.  I remember being crushed.  I had dreamed of this night in my head and exactly how it would play out (this is what I do, I always envision how things will go, and of course they never go the way I think) minus the getting engaged part, that part was I was really surprised about.  After I threw my little pitty party for one, we walked around by the Bean, which overlooks the ice skating rink and I remember the hubby grabbed me and started saying a bunch of mushy stuff (I think this was the point I went numb and couldn't focus on what he was saying at all) next thing I knew, he was down on one knee proposing! My heart was racing sooooo fast but I quickly replied with YES!! We stood there kissing for a while, while the snow fell on us, and I just kept thinking how this night was the *perfect* night of my life.  We finished our night off by going back to our hotel and going to dinner at the steakhouse inside. 

Flash forward to now and we are celebrating 5 years of wedding bliss.  I would love to lie and say that these past 5 years have been nothing short of perfect, but I think even I would puke if I wrote that.  Marriage is definitely not easy, but it something I vow to always work on.  I know I have many qualities that I continue improving on so that it will overall improve our marriage and this goes the same with the hubby.  One thing I do know is that I am not one who will ever give up easily on this marriage thing, I may not be super religious but that day we took our vows in front of God meant everything to me and I will fight always for my marriage.


Happy 5 Years to one of the best hubbys out there (and best Daddy’s too!)
