Happy Anniversary Brent!!

This post is for Brent, who on our fifth anniversary is on a boat in Seattle! I love you. Thanks for five great years-they are only getting better!

10 Reasons Brent and I have made it to five years (in no particular order)

*Brent is flexible and easy-going.

*A few good books: The Five Love Languages, An Act of Marriage, and What We Wish We'd Known When We Were Newly-Weds

*Three beautiful kids that bring immense joy to our lives

*Communication daily...several times a day-even when Brent is not home we talk during every one of his breaks. (We started this when we were first married and I wondered how long it would last, five years later he still calls me during every break-you know your loved when know the time of day because the phone is ringing!)

*Remembering what we found so attractive in each other when we were dating and continuing to try to improve those good qualities for each other!

*Did I mention that Brent is flexible and patient

*Jacque had discovered that the old adage, "A way to a man's heart is through his stomach," really is true! :)

*We've learned a note, gift, or a simple text saying, "I love you," goes a long way!

*A love that started as tingles and romance has grown much deeper and stronger than either of us imagined!

Thank you, Brent for all of this! I love you and miss you. See ya in a week and a half!

Congrats guys!! Time flies...we will celebrating ours in November too! I'd forgotten we all got married that same year. I loved what you wrote...the depth of married love IS amazing.
