Happy Anniversary!

Today is Alex and my 5th Anniversary. It has been a wonderful five years together. I am so grateful for all that we have and even more grateful to our families who helped us learn how to be loving and kind and forgiving to each other. Each day my heart is open a little more because of Alex.

Here is the banner that I made for Mayme and Papas anniversary party. Alex strung it up this morning in celebration:
And here is the beautiful painting that Mayme painted of Alex and I on our wedding day. I don't think my photographing did it justice though, but you can get the idea. We have it hanging in our bedroom...

Hi Kelcey,
I love your blog these days. I finally discovered it recently and had to catch up on all the previous posts. Now I read it faithfully! Happy Anniversary to you two! It sure was a special day and Benny was so honored that you asked him to participate. It is hard to believe it's been 5 years. What a beautiful painting your grandmother did of you two and Becca and Christine! I didn't know she was so talented! We send you hugs and best wishes! Hope you're enjoying your mom's visit (is she there yet?)
Love, Cindy
