5 years of marriage

 It seems like this day was just yesterday...
     On May 22, Manny and I celebrated 5 years of marriage! We both can't believe how fast it has gone.  As we look back on the last 5 years, we are so thankful for the blessings and the trials, but most of all we are thankful for God's faithfulness.  In some ways, when we look back on the last 5 years it has looked a lot different than we may have "planned" before we were married, but we wouldn't change it because after all God's plan is way better than our own!!
     So in the last 5 years....we've had 6 different jobs (between the 2 of us), Manny became a CPA, we've had one pregnancy, bought a "new to us" car and still drive my first car (with over 300k miles!), took in 2 little doggies, have lived in the same place (we are  moving when baby arrives!), left the country once, driven thousands of miles between Illinois-California-Colorado-Idaho, been snowed in for a white Christmas in Illinois, attended lots of football games and events, spent 4 anniversaries at the beach (this year I would look like a beached whale so we passed), took Manny to 7 new states, have spent 4 years in a "young and married" small group, Manny has coached Colton Football for 5 seasons including 1 CIF championship, have lived simply, and shared thousands of laughs!

And looking back on 5 years of Anniversaries....
