Our last Anniversary...


Without a child. 5 years and 1 day ago we exchanged vows in a beautiful gazebo in Hawaii. We had a harpist playing in the background as we exchanged vows and promised our lives to each other. We had and still do have so many dreams for ourselves. I so tried to post this yesterday, but blogger was being a pain. I can't believe that it has already been 5 years. We've lasted longer than many we know, and longer than I'm sure many predicted. HA!! The last 4 years have been difficult as we've tried to start a family. Sometimes we've even talked about how having a family has dominated our marriage. We finally feel that weight off our shoulders as we get deeper and deeper into this adoption. We finally feel that we are reaching our "lasts". So last night we raised a glass to our last Anniversary without a child. I look forward to last birthdays, last Thanksgiving, last Christmas, last New years, last Valentine's day. Heres to lasts...
