This is us 5 years ago

on our honeymoon.


We didn't have a camera so we took a disposable camera that we never got developed until our five year anniversary. Some how it just kinda never got done. It became one of Jackson's toys.... I don't know. These pictures make me happy. Happy that we're still happy. Happy that despite the fact it was pre-digital camera I didn't have my eyes closed in one single picture. Happy that as a sign of kinda how low-key we are we went to Nashville for our honeymoon. Happy that as another sign of how low-key we are we still own and wear most of those clothes. Happy that even though its been five years (which i realize is nothing) so little has changed. I mean the world has changed a lot around us. But between us, where it matters the most, nothing has changed. Strengthened, totally, but constant.
Oh and for the record, for our five year anniversary, which I hear is the paper anniversary, we totally knocked it out of the park and are under contract to buy a house! I've never been more scared in my life but the excitedness is slowly, slowly creeping in.

Congrats on the 5 year AND the new contract. I hope everything goes smoothly.

It is a BIG step and I was scared out of mind too but once you're in and you pay that first mortgage payment not only to realize you've signed your life away ;o) Just kidding LOL, but you realize that it's YOURS and your fears subside. Congrats again!!

love you sweetie

I'm so excited for you to get into a house! Where is it? West Hills ward right?
It is a big pain buying a house, but after all of the paper work you'll be just fine.

Happy 5th anniversary!
