5 Years!

Gabe and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary on Friday! The 5 years went by pretty quickly and obviously a lot has happened in our lives. While we were out on a date, we were talking over the 5 years and agreed we have both grown up a lot! Of course we have had our challenges, just like every marriage, but I feel incredibly blessed to be married to such a wonderful man! The Lord exceeded all of my prayers, desires and expectations I had for my husband. Thank you Lord!  He knew exactly what I needed and desired and gave me that and SO much more!  

Thanks to my friend Lex who stayed with our girls, we were able to go out for a nice anniversary date.  We ate at the Sunbird Restaurant which is on a cliff overlooking Colorado Springs, such a beautiful view! We have said many times that we would like to go there, so this was the perfect occasion for a fancy dinner. Keep in mind, we often go to Chipotle for our dates, so this was a big step up! We were very happy with the Sunbird; their food and service was wonderful! After eating we took our coffee out onto the patio where they had fire pits and watched the sun begin to set. 

So thankful for our first 5 years and excited to see what the future holds for us as a couple! I love you Gabe!

 Obviously not a great photo,but you can see the awesome view from our table...

I love this man, can you tell?
