Our five year anniversary celebration

Happy 5 year anniversary to us! March 7, 2012 marks our five year anniversary.

We have spent the last five years loving each other through good times and bad, health and sickness, and richer and poorer. For those of us that are close, you know how drastic all of these have been for us. Marriage is a lot of work, and we are honored to have reached five years together. We have spent many nights working through disagreements and many days laughing so hard we couldn't sit up straight. We have desired, born, and began raising a child. We have grown closer, become more stable, learned about life, love, and marriage.

So for our five year wedding anniversary, we celebrated the right way- a relaxing get away filled with enjoyment, food, and alone time for the two of us. We started by staying a few nights at a bed and breakfast. We were far enough away that we could leave our daily life behind, but close enough if we were needed we could return home within a few hours. It was perfect. The B&B we chose had a comfortable feel, with interesting locks all over.

We chose The Parlor Suite, and it was sweetly romantic.

For another relaxing note, we chose to get a full spa package. We invested in hour and a half massages, and full hour long pedicures. It was wonderful, and we were both melting off the table. I even got my toes painted a fun sparkly green.

For lunch, we went to the Beehive Grill. It's known for it's good food, and boy did it live up to that reputation.

We started with an appetizer of a chicken queso. It was the best queso we've ever had. Grilled to perfect crispness on the outside, while the inside was filled with chicken and cheese, topped with fantastic salsa and a side of sour cream.

I had a chipolte chicken wrap, with fries and onion rings. The chicken wrap was excellent, a perfect mixture of hot and cold. The onion rings are fantastic! They make their own fry sauce, and I was smitten with it.

DH had Black Chicken pasta. It was al dente pasta in a creamy alfredo sauce, with broccoli and a side of garlic bread.

We took dessert with us, because there was no way we had room to eat it then but we didn't want to miss out. We ordered the famous chocolate cake - a pound of chocolate cake, filling, and frosting, topped with more chocolate sauce, whipped topping, and powdered sugar. We were in heaven over this one.

It was wonderful to spend time with each other. We love our life, our marriage, our family, and all we have going on. That all made this get away that much sweeter. We are happily looking forward to many more years together.
