Last Friday, Mike and I celebrated 5 years of being married. When I was younger, imagining what my future would look like, this is exactly what I saw--
We're not much for gift-giving, but 5 years is kind of a big deal. Mike surprised me with a pink Kitchen Aid mixer I've been eyeing and a blue hydrangea that will bloom in our front yard for many years to come (hopefully).
I planned a surprise getaway for us on the sly, so on Saturday morning, I sent Amelia into our room with a note that told Mike to get up because we had big plans.
My mom stayed with the kids and we had a glorious time laying on the beach reading, going out for a real meal, and spending the night in a hotel without children. Amazing.
This week it's just me and the little miss while big brother Will is at dinosaur summer camp. He was originally signed up for the half day program, but when he realized all his little friends were eating lunch together and staying for the whole day, he insisted that he should too.
At least I have good company.
