Justin and I celebrated 8 years of marriage this week. How lucky I am to get to spend every day with my best friend and a wonderful man! We usually celebrate in a pretty laid back manner and rarely even exchange gifts. I thought it would be interesting to document how we have spent each anniversary and so without further ado, a list of our anniversary celebrations.
Wedding Day: May 22, 2004 - Married in Dallas, TX
First: May 22, 2005 - Attended Candace and Jeremy Wiley's wedding in Waco, TX and stayed in the honeymoon suite at a local B&B.
Second: May 22, 2006 - Attended a recruiting dinner for work. We celebrated a few weeks early with a trip to Italy!
