Here's to five more.

Christian and I ventured into the city last Friday to celebrate our 5th anniversary. I truly believe that Christmas time in NYC is the most magical. After we checked into our stylish hotel the W (Tuscany) on the East side, we walked around the city looking for a good eat.
All the stores were decorated for Christmas, glowing lights lit up window displays. Our hotel room looked out to the majestic Empire State building. It was glowing red and green for Christmas.
Christian and I decided that our 5 years of marriage has been excellent to us. As we sat eating our dinner we came up with a timeline of our 5 years. Here are a few:
We have moved three times, lived and bought 3 houses, and had three children. Christian graduated from BYU; we got a dog, bought three cars, and sold one. Both worked with the youth in the church, said goodbye to a sister after a long struggle with cancer, sent two siblings on missions, visited Hawaii, and drove cross-country from Utah to New Jersey.
The next morning when we woke up at 10:00, we drove to SoHo and visited Anthropogie and had lunch nearby at a charming café.
Here’s to five more!
