Wonderful Anniversary Weekend

Last friday we celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary.  I was really looking forward to our day!  Five years just seemed really comforting to me.  I can honestly say that our marriage has gotten better over the first five years.  I think we're closer, we communicate better, we're more patient and understanding with each other.  I just really love him and love being married to him!

I worked in the morning, but in the afternoon I came home to some flowers on the table and a sentimental card.  I got Tyler a charcoal smoker, knowing that I would get to enjoy it too.  When I went upstairs to shower, I was surprised by a second bouquet (a dozen roses) and a funny card.  We went out for sushi that evening and then returned home to watch a movie, but ended up watching diner's drive-ins & dives and the season premiere of Grey's Anatamoy.  We indulged in dessert on the couch, champagne and chocolate covered strawberries made by Tyler.  We enjoyed the weekend off together trying out the smoker, watching the Husker vs Wyoming football game, baking a cheesecake, and checking out a new trail with Bailey.  Pretty much a wonderful weekend if you ask me!
