5 Years, Happily Ever After

This post is very late, but better late than never!  Brian and I reached our FIVE year anniversary on May 8th.  I love Brian more than anything in this world.  I have loved our many years together and I can only dream for many more to come.  I remember our wedding like it was yesterday.  It was one of the best days of my life.  Everything went perfectly.  

 Don't we look young?!?
I honestly did not expect much for our Anniversary because it was on a Tuesday.  Side note, we were married on a Tuesday, how cool is that?  Anyway, I got home from work and Brian had the entire evening planned.  I came home to these:

I am a sucker for red roses.  They were gorgeous and they smelled wonderful.  Brian lined up a babysitter for Averie and made reservations at Log Haven up Millcreek Canyon.

 I don't know if everyone has been up there or not, but it is absolutely gorgeous!
 The food was amazing.  If you haven't been, GO! The atmosphere is wonderful and the food is great.  I am so lucky to be married to such a wonderful, romantic man.
 Speaking of romance, I'm not trying to brag, but I have to show you my gift.  I have been asking for a wedding band for 5 years to go with my wedding ring.  My hope was to get a band for our five year and a band for our ten year.  Don't get me wrong, my ring is gorgeous. I have just always wanted the bands to go with it.  Here is my ring before:

Brian and I went and looked at rings and it was so much fun!  It was like getting engaged all over again.  Only this time we had a wild toddler in the showroom.  Thank you Jared for having a play room for kids.  BRILLIANT.  Well after looking at several bands I was a little discouraged, nothing looked right with my ring.  I started to think that maybe my ring was not designed to have bands with it.  Well we ended up finding the perfect band for the ring.  It was perfect.  We started talking about getting another band in 5 more years and we were informed that "it would be very difficult to match this particular band".  Of course it would.  Spoiled brat me had to have both matching bands.  This is how it turned out:
Isn't it gorgeous?  I am still trying to get used to it.  It is a little more than I was going for, but the bands completely complement the main ring.  There, bragging over.  Sorry, couldn't help myself!

I just feel so fortunate to have such a wonderful husband.  He made this Anniversary completely memorable.  I LOVE YOU BRI!
