"Just" Married...

On August 2nd, Matt and I celebrated our 5th anniversary!!! WOW!I feel that 5 years marks that fact that we really aren't newlyweds anymore...and, even though I LOVED our newlywed days, I'm not at all sad to be 5 years into being husband and wife!

I feel that we've learned and done SO much...in our five years Matt has worked at 2 churches, I've taught at 2 schools, we've lived in 2 apartments, lived at a friend's house for 4 months, and built our first house. We've gone on some great trips, gotten pregnant and had a beautiful baby boy! We started a company together and celebrated our son's 1st birthday! We're so blessed...beyond words!!! And, I can't imagine doing any of those things without Matthew Poe by my side. ...

When I look at our wedding pictures, I get a little teary! We were so excited and everything was so unknown...even though we thought we knew so much about one another, we really knew so little! And, in these five years I have gotten to know my very best friend inside and out...and I love him more than I EVER could have thought possible!





We had a 108 degree wedding day...it felt much like this summer! Miserable!!! My little red heart fan went everywhere I did on that day!!! ...
And, on our anniversary this year, Matt was on a plane coming back from Mexico.(Boo!) But, when he came home, we exchanged gifts and promised to really celebrate on Monday night. So, Brad and Remy came over to watch Q while Matt and I went to a movie (Swing Vote) and out to dinner (Brio...YUM!) Even though it wasn't a crazy extravagant night, it was perfect! It was so nice to be out with JUST my husband and celebrate US! When we came home, we danced to the song we danced to at our wedding...which ALWAYS makes me cry! What a special anniversary!

Happy Anniversary, Matthew Poe! You really are my T.G.T.B.T! I love you!
