All my memories of our wedding day are good. I mostly owe this to the most amazing Maid of Honor a Bride could have! She made sure that the day went smoothly, and if there were any last minute bumps in the road, I never heard about them. She dealt with the stress of the day so I could truly enjoy my wedding.
Each anniversary we try to get each other the traditional/modern gifts for each year. This is both challenging and fun! The 1st year anniversary gift is paper. Ken made me a stock certificate stating that I own 100% of the stock of Ken Parsell. This has worked in my favor many times over the past five years! The statement "You don't own me" is quickly followed by a quick point toward the stock certificate and a smirking declaration "Oh yes I do!"
The 5th year anniversary gift is wood. We both had to be creative on this one, and I can't wait to see what my wonderful husband has come up with!
Marriage comes with it's challenges, and blessings. I am truly thankful that I get to spend my days married to my best friend and love of my life. Many people have asked us over the past 5 years if the honeymoon is over yet, and both of us always respond "Absolutely Not!"
