The Chocolate Anniversary?

Husband and I decided that we would not exchange gifts for our anniversary. We were going camping and figured that was enough. However, Husband felt compelled to do something, since it was our 5 year anniversary, so he got me chocolate (smart man!). Each type of chocolate corresponded with a year of our marriage and as he gave them to me, he explained how it represented that year. Now, without further ado, I share with you our marriage, according to Husband, summed up in chocolate:

 The first year was sweet.

 The second year: Something about Canada...not really sure what he was trying to get across. He was coming up with these things on the fly. Apparently his thought process ended with "get chocolate".

 In the third year, he orchestrated all the love in his heart for me.

 The fourth year was like a cool, minty breath of fresh air.

The fifth year was full of laughs and Snickers.

A little cheesy and lame? Yes. But very sweet!

5 year anniversary photo shoot

We are coming up on 5 years of marriage! Crazy! We haven't had any pictures done since our wedding so I thought now would be a great time to get some. I asked a friend with great photography skills if she would take them in exchange for us watching her kids sometime. She quickly agreed...a little too quickly! We had fun taking them and I love how they turned out!

Graduation day!

He's finished! He's finally finished! Husband completed his Master of Divinity and graduated! Oh happy, happy, happy, happy, happy, happy day!

With his happy graduation balloons and treats.

He got a really bad cold a couple days before graduation, which caused us to miss the church service on Friday night and the Commencement service Saturday morning. No worries, though: We watched the Commencement at home!

However, he got medicated enough to feel up to going to his actual degree presentation ceremony. Here he is getting congratulations from the director of the MDiv program.

The medal around his neck is for graduating with high distinction. The red, white, and blue cord is because he is a military grad.

With one of his professors, Dr. Roden. This is the professor who taught Husband the Hebrew alphabet song, which he then taught me. I hate them both!

Hooray for graduating!

I am so proud of Husband! He rocks!

Husband and our friend WVL, who graduated with her Bachelors degree! Way to go WVL! She was too lazy to get back into all her grad regalia.

He's pouting because now he has to get a job!
