5 Years...

Today, Kevin and I celebrated 5 years of marriage. It's hard to believe it's been five years already. Honestly, the time has gone by so incredibly fast and I have loved almost every minute of it. It is definitely the best five years of my life, and I hope he feels the same! We have accomplished so much in five years...three beautiful little girls, a few moves and countless other things. We have learned so much about each other and what it takes to make a marriage work and be successful. I've never been happier. Don't get me wrong, we sure have had our fair share of troubles, heartaches and times we never thought would get better, times when we wanted to throw in the towel, but it has always worked itself out making our marriage stronger and happier.

Mairead, our oldest, was a honeymoon baby, so when we came home from our honeymoon to learn we were pregnant was a bit of a shock! Not only were we learning about each other, we were preparing to become parents! Talk about jumping right in. Once we jumped in, we never looked back and kept on going. Looking back, I'd do it the same all over again. I'd have our children the same age apart. I'd marry Kevin all over again. In a heartbeat.

I think back to our past and it still amazes me how we reconnected. It really is an amazing story. If you missed that part of our story, you can read I'm a New Englander...He's a Floridian...How did we meet??? I believe our marriage was truly meant to be. I never in a million years thought I'd ever see Kevin again once I left Florida. And when we did reconnect, it was like we never were apart. It didn't take long for us to feel a special connection.

Even though being apart from Kevin these last few weeks has been incredibly difficult for everyone involved, it has surely shown us just how much we really do love each other. Just how special we are to one another. He is my best friend. He is my lover. He is such an amazing daddy to our girls and we cannot wait to have him home with us!

I look back at photographs of the last six years we've  been together. We've made so many beautiful memories. We have had so many laughs. And we have made three beautiful children together. I can only hope the next five years are just as special and memorable as these have been for us. I hope we can continue showing our girls what a marriage should be and how wonderful love can be...because I am in love. 


  1. Happy 5 years you two love birds!!!! I can honestly say it just keeps getting better, so enjoy the ride!!
