Happy 5th Anniversary to Us!

5 Years! What an adventure it has been!! Since we've been together, Mike and I have been busy, we've:

  • Added 2 incredible little girls to our family
  • Run 2 marathons together (Mike has run more w/o me)
  • Purchased and completely renovated 2 homes
  • Begun new careers
  • Traveled on many vacations to beaches, mountains, overseas, etc...
  • Built many friendships and memories together... and on & on
I feel so blessed to be able to live life with my best friend. We share so many dreams and goals together. It's hard to believe how fast this year has flown by! Really Really flown by---to think that it was a year ago to the day that we decided to proceed with adopting from Ethiopia (but, we didn't start the paperwork until October) and now we have our little Ethiopian princess here with us! What a year.
