I think I’ll stick around for many more

Friday was our anniversary – five years of marriage!  Woo!  Actually, we’re stretching the celebration across the whole weekend, since Saturday was the five-year anniversary of getting our first kitty, Stella (Yes, we got a kitten on our first full day of marriage.  It was our first joint decision as a married couple.  Priorities, people!), and today is the 8-year anniversary of our first date.  Lots to celebrate this weekend!


We’re keeping the celebration pretty low-key:  we’re trying to be frugal (something we both struggle with), and we’re trying to stick to our diet (high-protein, high-fat, low-carb).  But it’s possible to keep it simple and still enjoy special occasions, especially with meals like this:

T-bone steak with pesto shrimp and broccoli topped with Asiago...yum!

And for dessert…

Coconut chocolate chip cookies...an experimental recipe that ended up a winner.

Simple and delicious. (And in keeping with the theme of this blog, luxurious!)

I feel like our years together so far have flown by, but at the same time I feel like we’ve been together forever.  I thank God for bringing us together early in life and helping us to grow together, instead of apart.  We love each other, agree on the important stuff, encourage one another to grow and be better, and have a whole lot of fun.  We’re in it for the long haul!

And now, since I’m not sure you’ve ever seen her, and because this is her special weekend too, here is Stella.  She doesn’t photobomb my outfit pictures the way our other kitties do.  She’s a little shy.

Pretty girl.

We love her. 🙂

We wish you a wonderful Sunday!
