Happy 5th!!!

Boyd and I have been married 5 years today. I can’t believe it! Here are 5 of my favorite things about him:

  1. He is more supportive of me and my ambitions than I ever thought possible. He is always encouraging me to ask the right questions to figure out how to accomplish what I want. No obstacle is too big for him – he is always coming up with solutions and ways to make things work.
  2. He does everything in his power to make me happy. He gladly takes the kids so I can go to book club and cooking club, he encourages my hobbies, gives me a hug and a kiss every time he leaves or comes home, and is the whole reason I started Vanilla Joy!
  3. He is an involved and wonderful father. He puts Elliot to bed almost every night and wakes up early with him every morning so I can sleep in with Gus.
  4. He is taller than me. We would never have gotten past the first date if he weren’t! And he loves me. I’m so glad, because I can be pretty hard to deal with sometimes, even when I’m not pregnant!
  5. He makes me want to be a better and nicer person.

I love you,  Boyd!

Congratulations! I hope this is your best year ever. I personally think every year gets better. I love my husband more today than I did on the day I married him.

Aww, thanks girls! Unfortunately we have two sick little boys, so today is going to happen a little differently than planned, but that’s okay. 5 years feels good!

Awwwww – that’s so sweet. Happy Anniversary! And as a word of comfort, when Zoram got stung by a yellow coat, his ENTIRE LEG was swollen for a week – he totally had cankles and the bite was near his knee. Anyway, I think Elliott will be okay.
