anniversary

yesterday was our fifth wedding anniversary
five years of marriage
where has the time gone?

really
wasn't it more like five months ago
that I was planning and preparing
walking down the aisle
leaving on the honeymoon?

five years

they've been good years
and i'm looking forward to many, many more
because each year
just gets better

~~~~~~

we had fun
as we celebrated
he gave me flowers
and a new pair of earrings
i got my hair done by a professional
(because really, i'm pretty clueless about hair)
we left all three children in their grandparents' care
and dressed up and went to dinner
we ordered the fancy entrees
plus an appetizer and dessert
(something we never do)
we took in the sunset
and we talked and talked and talked

because
after all
five years
only comes around
once
