Today JB and I have been married for five years. Five!

50506_98.jpg
One of our first dates; this is early 1999, I think. Notice anything weird about this photo, other than our vibrant youth (does JB look fifteen here, or what)? I totally Photoshopped out my armband tattoo so JB could send the picture to his parents.

(They know about it now, of course, and since I have finally provided them with a male heir to the JB dynasty I believe it’s possible I have been at least partially forgiven.)

The moment JB proposed, caught on camera on New Year’s Eve, 2000 (the armband is back!).

Oh, five years have just flown by. I look back on these photos and remember all that we’ve done, all the days and moments that we were together, and I feel impossibly rich; I am so lucky, we are so good for each other.

My future has never shone so brightly. My past has never seemed so worthy. I feel like I am perfectly aimed, I am walking in the right direction, hand in hand.

Happy anniversary, baby.

    That is a WHOLE lot of empty wine glasses in that honeymoon pic. Were you just starting, or just finishing??

    Just finishing, I think. It was “wine tasting night” on the cruise ship.

    Do you ever age, even a little? You look exactly the same in all the pictures – and that wedding photo my GOD that’s beautiful.

    And i disagree with one of the comments above – JB without the facial hair is indeed very handsome but with? GGGGRRRRRRR!

    Congratulations to both of you!

    You are both impossibly cute!

    I have to convince my workaholic husband to take more vacations. And no, I do not count visiting his parents as being a vacation.

    The church where y’all got married is just gorgeous. Is it in Washington?

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY JB & SUNDRY.

    A bit belated but heartfelt nonetheless!

    Wishing you many more years of happiness.

    I’m so glad you linked that chapel — it’s so beautiful.

    As, of course, are you and your husband and your baby. What a great photo history of the last six years (incl. dates) — I especially adore that engagement photo. I think we have the same engagement anniversary (Jan 1, 00)?

    Congratulations on your upcoming anniversary. My husband and I were married on May 5, 2006 in Gulf Shores,AL in their cute little Chapel.

    It will be our first anniversary.

    Take care,

    Kim
