Our 5th Anniversary

I love being married to this man. He's my best friend. It's fun living with him. He actually lives what he preaches- he's such a godly man. He leads me with the way he lives, not in some domineering way, but in a true loving sacrificial way. He loves the Lord more than me, and I'm thankful for that. And he loves me more than himself- it shows.
I am blessed beyond measure.
On June 23 (our anniversary), I was sick in bed (the kind of sick where you can't do anything- fever, aches, etc.). The "in sickness and health" part of the vows rang true that day. Jesse took the day off to help me with the kids. He was a gem. So, our date was postponed until a couple nights ago. Jesse took me to Sofi, a Greek restaurant in West Hollywood. We were pretty excited about the fact that there were no strollers, car seats, potty trips, questions every 15 seconds, etc. on this date :) We couldn't remember the last time we went out just the two of us. True bliss.
After dinner, we walked over to the Grove. We looked in a few stores, and then plopped down on the lawn and listened to a live band.
I love you, Jesse! I look forward to future adventures with you...
