Half a decade!

The Chef and I celebrated 5 years of marriage on Friday!   A good friend volunteered her babysitting services so we could go take a gormet picnic to the beach.

We enjoyed lovely wine and cheese platter

A delicious salad with pecans and dried cherries, along with chicken and mushrooms in white wine sauce.  Yum!!!

We finished off with eclairs while watching the sunset.  It was lovely!

We had meant to go to a movie, but ended up walking and talking on the beach and lost complete track of time!  It was so good to share how much we’ve grown in the past 5 years, how much our communication, expecations, patience, intimacy, and vulnerability has grown. 

Here’s one of our engagement pictures (we were young’ins!)



  1. happy Anniversary! What a wonderful celebration!

  2. glad you had a great anniversary! i love that you guys meant to go to a movie and lost track of time!! so nice to have uninterrupted convo!

  3. Sounds like a wonderful way to celebrate guys! Congratulations on 5 years, what an accomplishment to look back and say that you’ve grown in all those areas! Well done 🙂 And I must say, you look amazing in those pictures. You might have been young’ins in that older picture, but you’re definitely still looking hot. 5 years is agreeing with you guys 🙂

  4. btw, by “you” I mean you Hols. You can tell The Chef that he looks hot if you think so, but I was meaning you specifically… lol.

  5. What a wonderful anniversary celebration–so creative and romantic!!
