Today is our 5th wedding anniversary. We didn’t do anything fancy, but it was a perfect day as far as I’m concerned. We went to a cookout this afternoon, so I baked a bunch of small strawberry pies this morning with H. And then my mom babysat while we headed to Nicholas for a really great anniversary dinner. H loves my mom, but we came home to a fussy baby who dissolved into hysterical tears when she was in my arms before suddenly passing out on me. She just wanted her mom and dad (and some gripe water), and I never felt more like a grownup than I did in that moment. Life is so different today, but it just gets better and better. And I just keep counting my blessings.

Adam hates when I post photos of him here, but this is a special occasion. So in 5 years we’ve gone from this:

To this:

Yep. The best ever.

UPDATE: Adam wants me to clarify that going to Nicholas is fancy. 🙂
