5 Years

This is a little late, but I was computer free for the weekend. Friday...May 22nd Jason & I celebrated 5 years of wedded bliss!! 5 Years just seems like such a milestone. But is it really? The past 5 years have been the best. We decorated our house, took vacations, went through several cars, and of course had our sweet baby boy Jacob. Plus all the other great things we have done over the years. I am more in love with Jason then when we got married.

We spent a quite evening at home on Friday. With a dinner of champagne and chocolate cake. My friend Vickie, recreated our wedding cake...well the look not the flavor. Jason took Saturday, Sunday & Monday off work. Saturday afternoon Jake went to his Nana & Pawpaw's house and spent the night. Jason & I headed down town to Atlantic Station and walked around there and then had a great date at IKEA. Who doesn't love that place?? Ahh...the wonderful stuff they have there. Jason enjoyed trying out all the couches and beds. After a great time shopping we had a delicious dinner at Joe's Crab Shack. Sunday I slept until 9:30...I think that might the first time in like a year that I have been able to sleep in. It was great. Because of the sleeping in we didn't make it to church Sunday morning. But everyone is aloud a day off every once in a while...right? We then went to lunch and headed over to pick up Jake.

He didn't really seem to care that we had been gone, or that he hadn't seen us in 24 hours, but it was still good to see him. Jason & I had a great time, but days just don't seem the same without Jake there. We stayed at my parents house and hung out the rest of the weekend and enjoyed some time in the pool.

What a great relaxing anniversary weekend! And of course a blog wouldn't be complete without some wedding pictures.

As I reflect back on our wedding day and remember the love I felt and joy for marrying Jason. I am reminded of our wedding vows. Here is a little piece of what we said.

Jason-Sometimes your nearness takes my breath away
Melissa-and all the things I want to say can find no voice
Jason-then in silence I always know
Melissa-my eyes will speak my heart.

I can't believe how young we looked...or I guess we were! I loved my wedding and of course Love the man I married. What a great husband and now father Jason is.

  1. Such sweet memories. And look at how much else has changed in 5 years! Both sisters now have a son (or another in Amber's case), Jason's brother has a baby, look how much Emily and Nicholas have is so nice to reflect sometimes. You do such a great job of it, and now you'll have your blog to look back upon as the years pass. I have Jake's birthday party invitation on my refrigerator still because it's so cute, and I look at it every day and think of how much he's grown. Just imagine when you look back at your blog in 5 years at these pictures!
