Today is Benjamin’s and my 5th anniversary! It’s pretty amazing to look back at pictures from that day and think about how much we have been through since then. Even thinking back to 2 anniversaries ago it’s awesome how our family has changed and grown.
Benjamin, these 5 years have been a whirlwind of houses and renovations and babymaking and babyhaving and traveling and cooking and enjoying life together. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner to share all of that with. I can’t imagine what craziness we have in store with Owen as he grows, and I look forward to many more years sharing all of that with you.
This year we’re celebrating by a day on the beach with all of the babies, and attempting an early (read: baby friendly — 4:30pm!) dinner out at a lobster/chowder place for our last night on the cape. We have had enough family around this week that we planned a “night out” for each couple, and Benjamin and I had a pseudo anniversary dinner two nights ago at a DELICIOUS restaurant where we sat overlooking the ocean and sipping wine together. It was lovely.
Next week we’ll be back to adjusting to life in our new home and more regular blogging. The beach has been wonderful, but we’re more than ready to get home (mostly to our own beds)!
