5 Years!

Dear 5 years of marriage,

You came much quicker than I expected. ¬†I seriously can’t believe you are here already. ¬†You feel like a big deal. ¬†Because you are half way to 10, which is a big deal. ¬†In many ways you were what I expected. ¬†You have brought many moments of Vu laughing at how funny I am. ¬†And sure I guess many moments of me laughing at how funny Vu is too. ¬†You have come with many Star Wars viewings and quotes. ¬†And you have seen many moments of trying to disguise vegetables as delicious food for one tough critic. ¬†But then you have also come with some unexpected things too. ¬†First of all you haven’t managed to get Vu to not pull up the sheets every night. ¬†I was really hoping for that one. ¬†I also didn’t realize you would come with annual trips to Disneyland/world. ¬†That one has been really fun. ¬†And you didn’t bring as many new sports cars as had been anticipated, although this last car was a pretty big deal for someone in this household. You have seen us through many ups and downs of life. ¬†I am glad you were around for both of them. You have made it easier to get through those downs, and increased the joy in those ups. ¬† Also, there has been a lot more bacon in my life since you have been around. ¬†Thank you for all the good and beautiful things you have brought me, and also for the lessons I have learned and the ways I have grown. ¬†You are the bestest!



P.S. Happy Anniversary Vu!  Love your guts!
