Happy 5 year!

Stephen and I just got back from spending almost 2 weeks in Door County (more pictures of our vaca to come!). While we were there we celebrated 5 years of marriage. I love that we return to the spot that we got married every year for our anniversary. It brings back such great memories. 
This year of celebrating seemed even more special as we know it is our last year of just the two of us. The day started with some coffee and breakfast in bed...brought to me by my sweet love...along with a card and some daisies (my favorite flower). We spend the day on the beach and then went out for a drive around Door County. We came back, showered and got ready for dinner. Stephen took me to the Inn at Kristopher' of my favorite restaurants up there. He had written out a list of highlights from the last 5 years and as we sat there having dinner and listening to the live music we talked about everything that we had done. He also surprised me with a trip back up to Door County to stay at the bed and breakfast we went to on our wedding night. I surprised him with tickets to go and see one of our favorite bands Mumford and Sons!
I am so thankful for my husband! I can't imagine these last 5 years without him and I am so looking forward to this next adventure in our life and the new joys that it will bring. He has been such an encouragement to me and I have seen so much growth in him over these last 5 years. He is my best friend and the love of my life. I love you Stephen!
