25 and 5

Today is our 5th anniversary! We can't believe it has already been 5 years! Time flies when you're having fun. We have grown up a lot in 5 years, and we have grown closer as well.

August 12th is also a special day, because it is Stephanie's birthday! She is 25 years old. This works out good for me, because I only have to remember one date. However, if I ever forget, I am going to be in twice as much trouble! Yikes.

Please wish Stephanie a Happy 25th Birthday! She feels that birthdays aren't as good as they used to be. That can seem true. Nothing can capture the magic of those birthdays you have as a kid. It might be a true blessing that our anniversary is on Steph's birthday. August 12th will always be a day of celebration for her, even if her birthdays aren't as fun as they used to be as a kid.

It's hard growing up, but there is much celebration in accomplishing something that many people can no longer do. 50% of marriages fail, and that number is constantly growing. Not many people make it 5 years. With God's help we plan to make it 55 and beyond. Each year Stephanie gets older, we can celebrate our accomplishment of staying together and staying true to each other. If Stephanie ever feels old, she can always hang on to the fact that I am older and she will always be younger!
