Yesterday, and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary. Five years ago, I married my best friend and I am happy to report that we are still in love, we still like each other, and we have a wonderful marriage! We went out for dinner last night and started to list things that our marriage has outlasted. We came up with a few:
- average length of NFL career (3.5 yrs)
- our college years (4 yrs)
- high school (4 yrs)
- the time before a child goes to preschool (4 yrs)
We also talked about how parenthood compares to what we expected and how it has changed us for the better. We discussed our professional goals for the next two years. We just enjoyed each other’s company.
The dinner date was absolutely wonderful. Amidst our busy schedules, work deadlines, and caring for Jillian, I sometimes forget how great it is to just be with J. We don’t have to be doing anything special, just being together makes for a great time.
I am so thankful for our friendship and marriage. And I look forward to many more anniversaries.
Here’s a look back to our wedding day!
