Happy Anniversary – Six Years of Awesomesauce

Today marks our SIXTH anniversary! It’s not as extravagant as last year’s, but this isn’t the 5th or the 10th, now is it? We went to Downtown Disney as a family today, but with no approved babysitter in town this weekend, we’ll go out for a nice dinner next weekend – it’s all good!

6th AnniversaryA lot has happened in the last year, most of it surrounding fostering since the end of April – all but one day of it being our second placement, “Boy.” He recently turned 3 and is really a ball of energy!

  • we got licensed in April and had a very fun party in June to celebrate with family
  • Beautiful enjoyed a full year at home and I managed to keep the business open for a 3rd year
  • my best friend got married in July in Ohio and honored me with the duties of best man
  • we took Boy to Ohio to meet Grandpa and Grandma
  • in September, we laid Grandpa to rest after 11 months on Hospice
  • we are getting to know Boy’s parents and they are coming to church with us now

Lots happening, but the days all seem to blur together until an event or crisis happens. Last year seemed to get away from us, but this year is going to be filled with date nights and intentionality.

Here’s looking at seven years, Baby!

    Happy Anniversary!  You guys got married the same day as some friends of ours – they celebrated their 6th yesterday.

    • Thanks! Was it as hot as ours? Her dad thought the 3rd week of October would be cool and hurricane-free. Hurricane-free, yes – but it was ~90 around 2pm.
