Five years ago today, we were here. I couldn’t imagine that anything would make me happier.

And my incredible, strong Todd has been by my side the whole way. Leading our family, guiding me, and teaching our boys.

It’s been a big year with lots of changes. And, yet, Todd is my constant comforter and protector. Reminding me to pray and turn it over to God. Reminding me to focus on our blessings. And loving me despite my unlovable ways.

I’m excited about the next five years and can’t wait to see where we are at our 10 year anniversary. How our family grows as we settle into our home. And then at our 50 year anniversary when it’s just back to Todd and me.

Todd is the strong, level-headed one that keeps us all grounded. And I’m so thankful he chose me.

I’m thankful for all the laughs and his quick wit. I’m thankful for his kindness and humility. And I’m thankful for his big heart and the way he loves me and loves our boys.

    I love Smash too. I hadn’t eard about it being cancelled but read a bad review of this season-even though I like it-so I’m not surprised. I was at Target today, and saw that they had the soundtrack to Bombshell. It’s the whole story. I wish they’d put one out for Hit List too.

    How is Hayes already two?

    Happy Anniversary! I remember your blog was the first I ever read- I found it through Southern Weddings Mag, right before you got married, when I was wedding planning. Ha, you were my gateway blog! Anyway, congrats on five magical years- can’t wait to see you and TC next month!

    So so sweet! Is it normal that I completely teared up when you said the things about 50 year anniversary and it being back to you two?? I once remember when I was in HIgh School I asked a friends mom if she would be sad when all her kids were gone and she said well if I didn’t love my husband I would be sad, but instead I look forward to that season of our life. Love that and it’s so true. Happy anniversary to you two!
