How we celebrated our 5th year of marriage!!

September 4, was our anniversary. It is so hard to believe that it has been 5 years! These have been the best and most exciting 5 years of my life. This past year has deffinantly been a trying time for us but I think that it brought us closer not just to each other, but made us totally rely on God! And we all know a chord made of three strans is stronger than that made of two!

I hadn't expected anything special on our anniversary. About a year ago we had planned on going to the caribbean but due to all of our medical bills and things we decided not to. But I woke up Friday with a dozen of red roses delivered to me, and I had called to thank Matt for them when I realized he was pulling up in the drive way. He had planned a whole night, just us two to the beach. The beach is my all time favorite place to go. There is something about the sand between my toes and the roar of the ocean that brings sanity to my soul. We had a room that was beach front. We spent hours on the beach, played a round of goofy golf, and had a fabulous dinner at Carrabba's! We woke up Saturday to a thunderstorm and some SEC football on tv. It was a perfect 5 year Anniversary. I am so thankful to have a love like ours!

Love y'all!

Congrats on 5 years! I can't believe it has been that long already. Time flies! Glad you two got to get away for a little while. So sweet!
