5 Years of Mostly Wedded Bliss ;)

Ben and I celebrated 5 years of marriage this month on August 7th. We started dating on 8-4-09 and were married on 8-7-04. We have had a great life together so far. I am very blessed to have him as my husband. We celebrated by going out of town for the weekend. We didn't want to travel far because Paxton Michael was due any day and we wanted to see him on his birthday. We drove to Helen, GA, which is a little German themed town a few hours away.
We had a great dinner at a steakhouse on the river Friday night and walked around the town. On Saturday morning, we hiked to a waterfall and spent the afternoon floating down the river on tubes.

That night we drove to Atlanta and ate a delicious dinner at a restaurant called Canoe (we love to eat so I always seem to mention the good restaurants). We spent the night at the same hotel we stayed at on our honeymoon night (before flying to the Bahamas for the week). We shopped in Atlanta the next day at Lenox Square Mall and drove home that night. We had a wonderful weekend and look forward to many more anniversaries together!
