It is hard to believe we got married five years ago.
-I have changed my hair color four times.
-We made croissants three times – you’re lucky if you got to taste them!
-We’ve been on between 90 flights together to 14 countries.
-We’ve lived on three continents and visited four.
-We’ve had four addresses.
-We studied Mandarin and Tall Mountain French.
-Apparently, I searched Google over 8000 times while logged in.
-We both discovered the Thirties.
-I think we’ve flown with about 100 bottles of wine and smuggled in about 20kg / 44lbs of delicious cheese into the United States.
-We gained two sister-in-laws and two nieces.
-I had a baby!
Still, every time I think about the angle I want to take for an anniversary blog, I’m not sure what to write. I think that’s because all the most significant things that have happened in our marriage simply cannot be listed in a bullet list like the one above.
We postponed our anniversary celebration until next month when we go to a special restaurant in London (babyless!). So, yesterday, we technically weren’t going to celebrate. But Tall Mountain doesn’t know how not to celebrate. 🙂 He came home from the airport with a bouquet of flowers and fresh macarons from Frogs French Bakery in Tucson!!
Here’s what our fifth anniversary looked like…
How things have changed since 2007…in the most wonderful way.
