Today we have been married for five years! I don't know what it is about number five, but I feel like Steve and I have been talking about this anniversary ever since before our 4 year anniversary! I think it has something to do with the fact that this is the first year where we are no longer in school! yay! Five years seems like a long time, but at the same time, it's like our life is just now really starting to happen if you know what I mean.
This year for our anniversary we're doing a little getaway to the Coeur d'Alene resort but we were only able to make reservations for a couple weekends from now because apparently the weekend of August 22nd is really busy! But for today, in honor of our five year, here are five things that I love about Steve:
1. I love that Steve is the daddy to our two boys. Seriously, what a great example my boys have. I feel more relieved when I think that I have Steve at my side, helping me raise our boys. We're not perfect parents but together I feel like we actually have a shot at this thing. I know that I can trust that Steve wants the very best for them and is willing to sacrifice for them. And I love him so much for it.
2.Whenever we get in fights, he's always the first one to say he's sorry. A good quality to have and something that I obviously need to get better at.
3. Steve is actually an amazing cook! Hello, what girl wouldn't love this in a husband?! But this is something that I didn't really know about him when we first got married. Steve loves to cook but only with the best (most expensive;) ingredients which means it always turns out really really yummy. Cowboy burgers, roasts, chicken sandwiches. And my personal favorite: pancakes. Steve makes the most amazing homemade pancakes I have ever had! They're perfectly fluffy but they also melt in your mouth and I have no idea how he does it! He just eyeballs his recipe every time which makes it very hard to recreate! I've tried a handful of times and have failed every single time. Ha. Steve, keep it up. Your cooking is simply amazing. ♥
5. I married an incredibly hard working man. One of his best qualities is that failure doesn't shut him down; it wakes him up, pushes him to try harder until he succeeds. And he always does. He also never gets embarrassed. Seriously, I've never known him to be embarrassed and you put those two things together and you get someone who brushes off failure like it's NBD. It just makes him try again until he's figured out what works. This is one thing I've always loved about him and I'm super proud of all of his accomplishments.
I love you, Steve. Thanks for letting me brag about you ;) But especially thanks for making the last five years by far the best of my life ♥
