The Organic Cotton Anniversary

Five years ago this guy and I stood up in front of a bunch of people and said we were in it for the long haul. Well, so far so good.

(This is one of the only pictures from our actual anniversary where Brent does not look like he's about to bite me. I'm not sure why he seems to do that in photos of the two of us, but you'll be sure to notice it now that I've mentioned it.)

Five years ago this guy was but a thought, a dream, a hope...

Five years ago I never would have imagined adorning my front yard with a sunbleached plastic slide and a rusty dump truck.

Five years ago I was friends-for-life with her mom. (Some things haven't changed.)

Five years ago I would have thrown away a broken camera.

Five years ago I never could have imagined how funny it would be to see my kid try bubble gum for the first time.

Five years ago I had no idea how much love my heart could hold.

And just how does one spend the fifth anniversary? We rounded up a babysitter (thanks Grandma!) and biked down to dinner at Cornucopia and then it was off to Ninkasi for a beer. Or two. Since I rarely venture out after dark (how lame am I? Oh wait, I have two kids!) I found that my bike light was missing, so clever, resourceful Brent suggested that we wear headlamps. Oh we were a sight.

And to commemorate the occasion? T-shirts from the brewery. Matching ones- oh yeah! Five years ago I would have never seen that one coming...

  2. Happy anniversary! But I thought the 5th was the wood anniversary... we received a cedar wood plank as a gift this year. I like the cotton t-shirts tho! :)
