June 16th marked our 5 year anniversary! We weren't going to do anything super special but our great friend offered to watch the kids for us overnight so we could go out and sleep in! It wasn't until she emphasized that this was a "big one" that I really stopped to think about it. With the common trend being a quick divorce among people our age and especially in our military lifestyle, 5 years is a big milestone.
For us, it seems like just yesterday we said our vows--we've lived in 3 different homes and endured over 22 months apart. When I think back to the weekend I met Garrett not much has changed. I knew from that moment that I was going to marry him (love at first sight DOES exist!), and I know now we've built a strong foundation for our marriage that will last forever.
Happy Anniversary my love, the best is yet to be.
