Gary, So I know I told you on the phone the other night that I was a bad wife and I hadn’t had a chance to get you a card or a present for our anniversary… well that’s still the case, sorry!!… But maybe just maybe this post will count for something!!

5 years ago we said “I Do”.  I didn’t just say it to my fiancé, I said it to my best friend… I said “I do” to you, the man that for some reason or another wanted to “date” me when I was just 14.  I said “I Do” to the man that put up with me for all those years, and in a lot of way grew up with me and watched me grow up!!  I said “I Do” to the most perfect man… for me!!  I look back at the last 5 years and stand in awe of everything that has happened and that we’ve gone through together.  Sure, there’s things I don’t ever want to repeat… but I wouldn’t trade the last 5 years for anything in the whole world.

We moved to Virginia to start our lives together, we bought our first car together, got our first dog, we moved half way across the country to Texas, we bought our first house, we’ve dealt with job changes, started my business, traveled lots of fun places together, and in July welcomed miss Kenzie into our lives.  It has been an amazing 5 years and I can’t wait to see what 5 more and then many more years after that have in store for us.

I love you and am so thankful for you… I don’t know what I did to deserve you as my husband, friend, and now dad of our baby girl, but I know that I have been blessed beyond measure and I thank God every day for you.  Happy Anniversary!!!  <3  I love you!!!

Back in September when my friend Emily was visiting from NC we went out and snapped a few photos… here’s a few that I snapped of Gary & Kenzie…

This photo was my first attempt at using a remote shutter release… LOL… I’m horrible at it!!!  Of course the only photo I really got of all 3 of us has Kenzie crying… 🙂  I still love the fact that I have it though!!!
