7 Year Anniversary

Today Jen and I celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary. Last year for our anniversary we went to a romantic Italian restaurant, ordered an expensive bottle of wine and lingered over dinner and dessert. We used to love to just sit and talk and imagine what our life would be like once we had Grace home. I also surprised Jen with a diamond anniversary band as a gift.

This year was a little different for us. I picked up Thai take out on my way home from work and we ate on fold up tray tables in the family room and watched Grace crawl around on the floor. This year we set a budget of $50 for gifts so no expensive jewelry this year.

Our lives are drastically different now and we are loving it. We wouldn't have it any other way. We finally feel complete, who needs all of that expensive, romantic stuff when you have a face like this to look at....

Happy Anniversary!

I couldn't agree with you more....life with Children is worth sacrificing all of those guilty little pleasures we had before we were parents!

Sounds like a perfect celebration!
