5 years

I can't believe that 5 years ago today I married my college sweetheart.

What an amazing 5 years it has been. When we said our vows on June 7th, 2003 I would never have pictured what our life is like today.

I am so incredibly blessed to have an amazing husband, best friend and father for my children. Everyday I love you more. Thank you for an amazing 5 years.

**************

Adam and I purchased a dining room table for our house... in leiu of buying gifts. I love it! The cool thing is that my Aunt Barbara emailed me and told me that a traditional gift for your 5 year anniversary is wood. How fitting that we chose to buy our first dining room table. Here is a pic of the new table...

And as far as celebrating, well we will eventually. My best friend from high school, Alyssa, and her little boy, Jameson, are here for the weekend! So we will be having fun with them... we couldn't think of anything more fun than celebrating the day with our friends and family! (Like I said a couple posts ago... when you are out without your kids you just end up talking about them anyway, so why not celebrate with them!)

Congratulations on 5 years!! Thomas and I are celebrating 3 years on the 18th!! I love the table and am still trying to convince thomas that i need one. We get each other gifts for the traditional things each year, so maybe i have another 2 years to wait!!

I knew this day was coming up for you quickly. I am so excited for you and Adam. I am happy for y'all that you have had a wonderful 5 years of marriage. it really does go by so fast. I wonder what my life will be like in 2 years when I celebrate our 5 year. I know I will at least have a dog! :) Speaking of dogs, how is Sammie?

My hope for you is that your new table remains in the Dugan family for generations to come...just as mine as survived the 100+ years in the Loughborough family tree. Your choice is beautiful, excellant taste!
Happy Anniversary!
Love, Aunt Barbara

Congrats!

You were sooooo smart to buy the two extra chairs! We didn't - and now the manufacturer doesn't make them anymore - so whenever we put the leaf in - we have to drag in some kitchen chairs - grrr!
