5 yrs. ago today

5 years ago today, 8-2-03, I married my best friend. The 5 yrs. have gone by quickly and as we wait in anticipation for Emily our home grows stronger in faith and love. We are truly blessed each day to be with each other. I am forever thankful that God brought us together at the perfect time in our lives.
This year to celebrate we are going to Italy. We wanted to do the trip during our actual anniversary but going to Italy during the summer is pretty pricey. So instead we are headed there in December during our school holidays. We will actually spend Christmas in Rome and New Year's in Venice. I CAN'T WAIT!!! So since we have to wait for the big trip we decided to do a little vacation to Las Vegas. We leave tomorrow for a week of hanging by the pool and seeing some fun shows. This year we are going to see Cher in concert, should be fun. We got a free airline ticket from our cc points so that makes it more fun and cheap.
Today is also Steve's dad's birthday so Happy Birthday Milton!

Happy Anniversary!!

I was watching the Travel Channel yesterday and they were talking about how people are buying their plane tickets EARLY due to the rising costs.

Which worries me if we'll EVER get to travel abroad anymore. We had planned to travel to Israel/Jordan next year, but with the costs of gas, and the middle east crisis, the dream is getting further away. I'm intimidated to spend money on the plane tickets so early. Do you guys buy travel insurance?

Enjoy your Vegas trip! It's been a year since we've been there, and I'm so glad we went when we did!

Before I forget, this week is all about ASIA/Beijing on the Travel Channel!

I hope you guys have a great time celebrating your anniversary! My sister just got back from Florence...a friend from HS got married there. Now, just a few weeks later, they're celebrating their own 5-year in Hawaii (where they honeymooned).

I'm jealous of you worldly people! ; )
