4 Years Ago...

4 years ago today, I married my best friend. I am so blessed to call John my husband and partner in life. Things have changed a lot since we first started dating 7 years ago. We gave up the uptown lifestyle to move out to the burbs (which we said we'd never do) and have fallen in love with life as parents. We're taking on the challenge of 4 kids in 4 years. I can't imagine anyone else that I'd rather do that with!

Instead of a nice dinner out like we'd originally planned, Austin came home from daycare sick. So we cancelled our plans and spent our anniversary at home. One of the perks of Austin being sick is that he is so ridiculously snuggly. So John got a lot of cuddle time.

Luckily I had Nurse Addie around to help me out. I didn't have the heart to tell her that in between the toes is not the best place to try to get an accurate temp.

I think Addie enjoyed our anniversary dinner of spaghetti!

After the kids went to sleep, John and I did get to hang out a little and drink the finest cream soda out of our wedding champagne glasses. These flutes are special because John's grandmother gave us money and gave us the challenge of picking out a wedding present that we could pass down. So that pretty much ruled out a lot of the things that we first thought of (like a dinner out, nice bottle of champagne, kitchen appliances, etc). So we chose these Waterford crystal champagne flutes in the Wedding Heirloom pattern. We only use them on our anniversary and always think of John's Grandmother.

Happy anniversary John. I am so thankful that God made you for me!
