Six Years of Bliss

Jesse and I celebrated our sixth wedding anniversary over the weekend. We had a lovely evening out to dinner with just the two of us. A big thank you goes to my parents for letting us ruin their dinner plans at the last minute to come over and babysit for a few hours.

Later that evening, in my effort to be a little romantic (don't worry, this won't get X-rated), I asked him in honor of six years together what are six things that he has enjoyed about our life together. I was hoping to hear things like "waking up to your beautiful face every morning" or "eating your wonderful homemade dinners every evening." I had to laugh when one of the things he chose to put on that list was, get this, Viggo. Yes, he put the dog on the list. The list that was supposed to be about our marital bliss. If you know my husband this should not be a surprise. To him, life just isn't enjoyable without a dog close by. On the plus side, at least I come in second to something that I'll probably outlive.

I love you, Jess!

Christa, Christa, welcome to the finer years of being married! Only now will you hear such wonderful words from your true love. :) You just have to laugh at how we all change, not in a bad way, just different. I am happy for you both. Has it been 6 years!? Wow! I pray you have many more years ahead and just as many laughs to go with them. :) Becky
