five years together

Yesterday we celebrated five years of marriage! Five years that have gone way too quickly, probably because they've been so enjoyable. Most of the time its hard for me to remember what life was like before Jake, when it was just the two of us and we could go on dates any night of the week. Those three years were so fun, yet I love Deric more now as I watch him grow into his role as a father.

The night before our anniversary we talked for a while (well, I think I spewed thoughts everywhere and let Deric get a word in occasionally) about bigger things than the typical day to day "how's work? how's Jake? what are we eating tonight?" conversations, and it was so good to walk away from that conversation knowing we're right on the same page even though we'd initially had those thoughts separately. I'm very thankful that we have the same hopes/dreams/goals, even if they're not hammered out quite yet, and that we have each other's support. It makes me excited to see what the next five years hold!

Last night, we swapped babysitting with friends whose anniversary was last weekend so they came over to play with Jake. We ate dinner with them and then left to watch Jurassic World, but the theater was so full that the only seats available were down front. Usually we'd just wait for the later showing but we didn't want our friends to stay even later than planned since they have kids of their own, so we came home after about an hour of trying to think of something else we could do. We ended up spending the rest of the evening with Jake on the playground, enjoying an unseasonably cool night, and later ate our movie candy while we watched Netflix. It wasn't too much of a bummer though because Jake is spending a long weekend at Deric's parents for the 4th of July so we've been looking forward to celebrating our anniversary for an entire weekend!
