4 years ago today, I talked about how much I love Kenny in front of about 200 of our closest friends and family members.  Second best day of my life.

3 years ago today, Kenny surprised me and took me out to the nicest restaurant we will ever go to and spent the most on a meal we will ever spend.

2 years ago today, we went to a cute BYOB restaurant near our first apartment in Chicago. We had moved to Chicago a few months before and had just gotten jobs.

1 year ago today, Kenny came home with the sad news about having lost his job.  We decided to keep our dinner reservations because I was pregnant, and we knew this would be the last time we’d be able to go out on our anniversary without arranging for babysitters and such for a long time.

Today, I’m going to go home after work and try to get Eli to go to sleep before his wonderful babysitters come. Then we’re going to go out to somewhere special Kenny has picked out.  This will be the 4th date (if you count two weddings) since Eli was born. Those other years he was just my husband.  This year I watched him become a father.


  1. you guys are so adorable. Congratulations!

  2. Why doesn't Blogger have a "love" button?

  3. Love you guys! I knew there would be an amazing new post on this most wonderful of days! Enjoy your date! Dare I say that you have actually had 5 dates? :-)

  4. Love to my daughter, Emily, my son, Kenny and their offspring Eli. Just sitting here and remembering the wedding. I loved it.

  5. dLove you three!! Happy Anniverery and here is to many more wonderful years together!
