Happy Anniversary to Us!

What a crazy week. Ann Catherine and Melissa's birthday Monday, my anniversary yesterday.

Chris and I kind of feel like we "lost" our anniversary when AC and Melissa were born. It's only two days after their birthday so we are usually so wrapped up planning AC's party that we don't find time to celebrate our special day. Her first birthday party was on our anniversary. And if you read my previous post, you know that her birthday is just so emotionally draining that sometimes we just want to rest when it's over. The last couple of years I have realized that we have to "make" time to celebrate our special day. As we tell Ann Catherine, "Without June 3rd, there is no June 1st!"

Chris took me to Connor's for dinner (it was fabulous!) and then we walked around Bridge Street (and of course, me being me, I ducked into Ann Taylor Loft to "look around." I walked away with capris for $15. $15 - can you believe that?? What a steal!)

When Chris and I stood before our family and friends and said "For better and for worse" we never could have imagined what that would mean in our lives. We survived the "worse" and not only that but our marriage is even stronger. I love that man.

Saturday we are having Ann Catherine's party so I have been running around trying to get everything ready for that. I'm looking forward to it, but I am also looking forward to a little breather next week! This week has been an emotional roller coaster and the ride hasn't stopped yet. :)
