5th Anniversary - Wow!

So, today is Chris and mine's 5th Anniversary!  Crazy!  The crazier thing is that we dated 7 years before getting married, so that totals a lot of years!  It's nice that he is AROUND this year (not deployed or in the field).  He has softball games tonight, but that is pretty appropriate for us, I think (although don't tell him, but I have my fingers crossed that they get cancelled) :-)  The past 5 years have brought a lot of amazing changes - we've moved 3 times (if you count Chris living in Ft. Knox, KY), we've gone through 2 deployments, we've had the most awesome baby....and another on the way.....WE JUST HAVE SO MUCH TO BE THANKFUL FOR - and we are - so thankful!  I thought you guys might like to take a ride down "memory lane" and see some pictures from the wedding...I don't have too many on the computer, but this is what I could find.  Chris and I were talking a couple of weeks ago - and Chris told me that if we were going to pick a "wedding dance" song for the present time, we would dance to "Then" by Brad Paisley.  It kind of describes how we feel about our life together up to this point.  Sorry for all of the "mushyness", but you gotta have it every now and then :-)  Here's to lots more great years ahead on this adventure of life that we are doing together...and that's the best part about it!  



Then (Brad Paisley)

I remember trying not to stare the night that I first met you, 
You had me mezmorized 
And three weeks later in the front porch light 
taking forty-five minutes to kiss goodnight 
I hadn't told you yet, I thought I loved you then 

Now your my whole life, Now your my whole world 
I just can't believe the way I feel about you girl 
Like a river meets the sea, stronger than its ever been 
We've come so far since that day 
And I thought I loved you then 

I remember taking u back to right where I first met you, 
You were so surprised 
There were people around but i didnt care, i got down on one knee right There 
and once again I thought I loved you then 


Now your my whole life, Now your my whole world 
I just can't believe the way I feel about you girl 
Like a river meets the sea, stronger than it's ever been 
We've come so far since that day 
And I thought I loved you then 

I can just see you, with a baby on the way 
I can just see you, when your hair is turning grey 
What I can't see is how im ever gonna love you more 
But I've said that before 

Now your my whole life, Now your my whole world 
I just cant believe the way I feel about you girl 
We'll look back someday at this moment that were in 
And I'll look at you and say 
And I thought I loved you then 
And I thought I loved you then
