Today, Forrest and I celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. It doesn't seem quite right! 5 seems like a LONG time to me and in my opinion, we are still newly weds! However, if I stop and think about it, so much has happened in the past 5 years. We got dogs, Forrest graduated from dental school, we've traveled the country and the world, we built a dental practice, we got new cars, we bought a new house. That's a lot to do in 5 years! It's been perfect because I got to experience all of those things with my best friends. I think that's the key to a successful marriage--being friends with your spouse. Whenever anything funny or bad or exciting or sad happens, Forrest is the first person I want to tell. He appreciates me for who I am, crazy and all, and somehow, because of that, I feel more like myself around him. I don't have to be guarded; I can just be me! I know that the future holds so much for us but today is about celebrating the past 5 years! Happy Anniversary!
