Come what may
Today is our anniversary. We have been married for 2 years, and have known each other for 6. We decided to go out together for dinner yesterday, and for the first time, we left James and went out on a "real date" to a nice restaurant by ourselves.
It was pretty cool....but we do have to admit, we missed the boy just a little bit. =) He, however, hung out at his friend Olivia's, and therefore never even noticed we were gone, which is just how we'd like it.
This is us dropping James off yesterday before our dinner, standing in front of Gwen and Brian's.
Hard to believe that around a year ago we had this guy:
We have all grown and changed so much since then! It is truly amazing how time flies. Especially when we look at a picture like this one, taken at a park in Wisconsin four years ago:
Okay, so Ben and I still *mostly* look the same. But who knew how much our lives would change since then? Definitely not us! But thank heavens it did change, in all the expected and unexpected ways that make life sweet. We are blessed to have each other and our little mister and thankful for every minute.
Happy Anniversary to us.
