THE best five years of my life! I love you, Joe!


And what would a tribute to the love of my life be without the lyrics to a cheesy country love song? Thank you Brad Paisley for this one...

I THOUGHT I LOVED YOU THEN

I remember trying not to stare the night that I first met you
You had me mesmerized
And 3 weeks later in the front porch light taking 45 minutes to kiss goodnight
I hadn’t told you yet...but I thought I loved you then


Now you’re my whole life now you’re my whole world
I just can’t believe the way I feel about you JOE
Like a river meets the sea
Stronger than it’s ever been
We’ve come so far since that day
And I thought I loved you then.
I remember taking you back to right where I first met you
You were so surprised
There were people around
But I didn’t care I got down on one knee right there
And once again I thought I loved you then


Now you’re my whole life now you’re my whole world
I just can’t believe the way I feel about you JOE
Like a river meets the sea
Stronger than it’s ever been
We’ve come so far since that day
And I thought I loved you then.
I can just see [me] with a baby on the way
I can just see you when your hair is turning gray
What I can’t see is how I’m ever gonna love you more
But I’ve said that before.


Now you’re my whole life now you’re my whole world
I just can’t believe the way I feel about you JOE
Well look back some day at this moment that we’re in
And I'll look at you and say and I thought I loved you then
And I thought I loved you then...

Happy Anniversary! I forgot to tell you that when we talked on the phone last time.
Nothing better than a happy marriage! :)

Congratulations! You are an amazing family.

Congrats on 5 years! Scott and I have our 10 year in Aug. I seriously can not believe how fast time goes by. OK, like your post below, I have not been blogging very well lately, which means I didn't see your post about needing to know on Tuesday until after the fact. I hope you found enough people. Scott will be out of town that weekend though, so I can't do Vegas. It sounds like so much fun though!

Happy belated anniversary!! It seems like you've been married longer than 5 because so much has happened in five years. It doesn't seem like a big enough number to have accomplished and done all that you've done in that time, but I guess it is! You two are amazing and I am so glad you have each other! You're the best!!
