5

this passed weekend, my man & i celebrated 5 years since this day:


shortly after we were married, i made a chaptered mini-album filled with a few decorated pages, and lots of typed passages o' the details of how we met, what my feelings were through the process, etc. i journaled the simple-n-special details of our courtship.

the typed part is probably too boring/personal/tender for you & this blog...
but here are the chapter headings:








myron was brought into my life in a very unique-ish way, at just the right season.

i thank my lucky stars for the pathway & people that led me to him.

he's my exact opposite & my exact match all at the same time.


it feels like just yesterday that i was lyin' in my twin bed covered in hello kitty sheets...comin' to the distinct realization that he is who i was suppose to spend all of my days with.

and for that, i am a happy girl.

here's to five bagillion more, baby.

I just love both of you guys so much! I love how similiar our hubbies are and how similiar we are, and how perfectly opposite we are to them, but not at the same time. Isn't it great? I got tender water spots in my eyes reading this post. You guys are such good friends to us and seeing those pictures reminded me in a sweet way how much I freaking miss you guys! Happy Anniversary, I hope it wasn't too work filled, and I hope you got some more sleep. xoxoxoxoxoxox

Happy Anniversary, Angie! My 1 year is coming up in a few days. For a wedding gift, I had made a book for my husband of our eHarmony q and a's and all of the emails we exchanged for our first year together. I just did a copy/paste from hotmail (a bazillion times) and made his notes a different font and color. I put scrapbook pages here and there and then had the whole thing spiral bound with decorated chipboard covers.

Truth be told, I think I love it more than he does. :)

Happy 5th! The album is so cute!

{alisse t} said...

Oh, girl... Happy 5 years! That's so exciting. Can you believe it's been that long? And how much adult stuff you have been through? Like, living in different places, job changes, birthing a daughter!, and more? I can't believe ours is at three. Five is like a milestone! Wait to go. And cutest album! I wish I would've written down my thoughts, feelings, etc during that time. You'll love having that forever!

Kapri said...

congrats angie! I think it it Myron who is lucky to have such a rockstar wife! Oh, and I think we're going to try to have a slide day soon...I'll email you!

Stephanie said...

Beth Curtis said...

Happy Anniversary!

Marie said...

Now that you've hit 5 years, I expect the marriage advice to be overflowing from your blog to all of "newly weds". I can't wait!
Congratulations!

Jenn said...

Happy Anniversary! I am so happy for the both of you and wish you nothing but the pure bliss for 5 bagillion more years!

kacee said...

Happy 5th Ang and My! You guys are the cutest couple...

rach bec. said...

sooooooooooo cute! ang! you're awesome. i wish i can be like you when i grow up. :)

becky said...

hope you guys had a great anniversary! you two are way cute! and btw, i just realized a lot of things for my {future} wedding are going to be similar to some things at your wedding! i also want a 3/4 sleeve & boat neck dress, and on the actual announcement, it doesn't say "pleased to announce" but "joyfully announce". i LOVE that! i am not sure why, but pleased has never sounded like the right word {adverb maybe???} to describe it! ha ha! i don't know what word i will actually use when the time comes, but it won't be pleased. i'm weird.

becky said...

oh & i forgot to mention the book... love it! just think of how much your grandkids will love reading it... awh, cute!

Marilyn said...

I hope you had a happy day! The book is fab. Your talent shines through! Chloe is a lucky girl to have a mommy and daddy who love each other so much

The Fletchies said...

the book looks amazingly adorable! congrats on five years! if you want to post more of the book, i really wouldn't mind. its really really cute.

Kaytie Brown said...

YAY for you guys!! Congrats on the big 5 years. Happily ever after/eternity to you my dear friend!!

sara dewitt said...

You give me chills on just about everything you write! I think there couldn't be a cuter couple! Myron once again I have to give you props for getting nothing less than you deserve! The two of you alone are amazing people and together, well I'm not as good with words as you seem to be, so I really can't find a word grand enough that fits! Your Pictures are worth a thousand words anyhow! HAPPY 5 YEARS!

-thx for the bday wish your too cute!

I am excited to be the 40th person to wish you a happy anniversary! I thought your book was so adorable, and so "you", but then I read "bagillion" and thought that was way more you! :) Both awesome!!!

Mom2BJM(Amy) said...

I'll add one more to the 40! Congrats to you! As someone said, it does go fast! Here I am 15 years later! They say marriage is a roller coaster, with its ups and downs, and it doesn't really stop!

Kaylea said...
