its been 5 years and I can't believe it

I don't know, don't these kids look so young?  It's weird looking back at wedding pictures.  I can honestly say that I don't remember much about my wedding day.  I remember the temple, I remember taking some pictures, I remember eating lunch and I remember part of the reception.  I don't however remember many details from the day, it's kind of a sad thing. If I were able to go back and tell my young self to soak it up, live it up and write it down... I would.  I'm sure grateful for pictures though. 

Isn't there just something lovely about pictures? They capture that moment in time. The places you've been, the people you've met, your experiences. I love pictures.  And that could be the very reason why I am constantly taking pictures--which in turn is the reason why my memory in my phone fills up so fast. Don't hate me. 

Anyways, today marks our 5 year anniversary.  Sometimes it feels like yesterday, other days it feels like decades ago. I think these past 5 years we have experienced sooooo much.  We've gone through school, worked our tail ends off, gone to school again, made our first big-kid car purchase, moved a few times, been robbed, held "together" church callings (my favorite by the way).  We have inside jokes, a lot of them are about The Office--who would have guessed, we've fallen in love with shows, share the same belief in Frasier, we sing the following two songs constantly, don't know what it is about them... something about love. 

I'm so happy, lucky, and blessed to have such a great best friend.  The kind that knows how to make you laugh, the belly laugh kind where your abs get sore.  The kind that can make references over and over about movie quotes, including and not limited to 'the man who knew to little' and 'tommy boy'. And it doesn't get old.  

Happy 5 years Brand, here's to many more and to the future that we can't yet see.

  4. So glad you found your best friend I think that is the secret--being friends and marrying your best friend and partner. Had diner and drinks last night with a friend who is getting divorced but this is b/c her husband wanted a mommy. She made all the money, did all the work, paid for everything put him through school and all he did was complain about his life. So yup no mommies or daddies needed it is all about partnership.

  5. Happy Anniversary!! I feel like I can barely remember anything about my wedding day too--I think the stress/excitement inhibits memory making!
