In five years, we…

* bought a house
* bought a dog
* adopted two cats
* had (technically) six jobs
* bought a car
* completed one master’s degree (and one coming shortly)
* got kicked out of grad school
* got accepted into a Ph.D. program
* went to Boston, Florida and Ohio together (though separately we also went to Alaska, Hawaii, Chicago, Los Angeles, etc.)
* became members and teachers at Temple Baptist Church, where we also met people who have become very dear friends
* wrote a book (unpublished…sigh…)
* grew into a constant state to improve our relationship with Jesus Christ
* loved each other desperately
* destroyed two floors due to appliances (sigh No. 2….)
* never put Christmas lights outside
* almost burned the house down (and apartment a couple of times…)
* found out traditions, even ones that we start, can be broken, and it’s okay
* saw the Saints win the Super Bowl together
* endured swine flu, diabetes, and wisdom teeth extractions
* said “I love you” every day

Even though our anniversary is not until Friday, I thought that if I can have a birth week, who says I can’t have an anniversary week? Therefore…

Happy anniversary, love.

Whaaat - happy anniversary MONTH! =)

You guys' anniversary is sort of like the anniversary of when we became good friends too - we hung out a good bit before y'all got married, but when you tied the knot we really became close!

So happy anniversary to team Ju-T, too! Haha
