5 Years Strong

Five stargazer lily stems Ken had delivered throughout the day

June 25 Ken and I celebrated 5 years of marriage, and it was a fantastic day! First, Ken had flowers delivered to me while he was at work. The first delivery of lilies came with a card that said, "The Wedding Day", the second "January 23, 2009: A Son is Born", the third "For the Future". For those who don't know, stargazer lilies are one of my favorite flowers, and were also the flowers we had at our wedding.

We went out for a date night that evening, and Ken had planned everything out. We went to dinner at Bugatti's, a wonderful Italian restaurant where I had the BEST basil-cream tortellini. Then Ken surprised me with the new Deeanne Gist novel from Lifeway. Next we split a piece of the most decadent Godiva chocolate cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory. We stopped at the George Fox campus on the way home to take some anniversary pics, and ended the night with a bit of the wedding cake replica and champagne with strawberries.

For a couple who rarely goes out alone, it was a special time to celebrate with my husband. We look forward to many more years of marriage to grow together in the Lord and as a family.
