5 years

Today is the 5th anniversary of the day John and I started dating. It truly does not seem like that long ago that he wooed me with salmon for dinner and promises of watching Scrubs on TV.  

We've had some pretty good times in the last five years and are fortunate to not have had very many not good times.

I couldn't have asked for a better partner in crime, adventure companion, or all around quality character. Thanks for an amazing five years!  I'm excited for what next five years might bring (and the 55 after that...)!
