5 years ago...

5 years ago, today, Joshua Chase Davis...

You asked me out on a date. I was giddy. Ask Chelsea. We went to Johnny Carino's and I stuffed my face with the bowtie festival. I was already smitten. I had no idea what you were thinking. You looked mighty handsome in your vintage La Tigre polo. 

This photo was as close as I could get to that time. It still makes me laugh...reenacting our childhood teeball "buddy pics." 

Here's to the weekend that "young love" surprised us & it was all history from there ;)

Fast forward five years and we've had some crazy adventures, but I'm still smitten...and I'm so glad you asked me to dinner :) I love that we can drive to Carino's tonight & celebrate "anniversaries" like these. Celebrate every milestone. Celebrate the Love that God blessed us with. Celebrate every step of this adventure.

I remember talking about celebrating our 6 month "anniversary" of being married while we were in the air on our way to Malaysia and someone made fun of us for being excited about that "milestone."  Personally, I think it's awesome that we celebrate little things like this. 

Here's to celebrating.

Happy five-years-since-our-first-date-iversary, love! I'm getting the bowtie festival tonight!

Here's to love.

I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine.
