Anniversary

Today is our 5 year wedding anniversary. We got married in Mexico on an island called Isla Mujeres. The island is great because it's a little off the beaten track. It has all the best things about a beach vacation in Mexico without all the annoying things (like vendors constantly trying to sell you things while you are trying to relax on the beach with a margarita). We rented a house on the beach for the week and only invited our immediate family. The ceremony was on the secluded beach in front of the house at sunset. It was a perfect day and a fun week of vacation with our families.

At the time, I always imagined (planned?) that we would go back to that house, or at least back to the island for our 5 year anniversary. I also imagined that we would be making that trip with a toddler. Things didn't quite work out that way, but I am so grateful to have something new to celebrate this year. Maybe we'll make it back to Mexico for our 10 year anniversary with our 2 little ones in tow.

Here are a few pictures from our wedding:










There are better pictures, but I am a little nervous about posting pictures of myself so I tried to only use ones where you can't totally see our faces.

  14. Happy anniversary!! It looks and sounds like a wonderful place for a vacation! Really makes me want to go there. I always imagined we would do something fun and special for our 10th wedding anniversary. Well, we have celebrated 15 years now and we have yet to do anything. Oh well. Maybe for our 20th!!! Even better than your vacation this year, you are celebrating your pregnancy!! Woot! Woot! I think the 10year plan with twins in tow sounds amazing.
