Our Anniversary

Today is our 8 year anniversary.  We decided to put a $10 limit on our gifts this year... although I did cheat and get Caleb a new pair of sunglasses a couple weeks ago.  But for today, his gift was a NY steak that I'm making him for dinner tonight.  We never have steak so he will enjoy it :)

Here are some of the big things that have happened in our family in the last 8 years:

August 30, 2003 - Wedding Day!

Year 1 - Honeymoon in Lake Tahoe.  Move to Bellingham (tiny one bedroom apartment).  Attend WWU.  I get a job in the financial aid office at WWU.
Year 2 - Second honeymoon in Hawaii.  Caleb graduates with an English degree.  We buy our condo in Bellingham.  Caleb films first feature film.  Caleb works at a moving company.  I continue school and continue working at WWU.

  1. Happy Anniversary! I can't believe it was 8 years ago that we celebrated your wedding! Watching Legally Blonde 2 in the hotel room the night before, getting up super early to get ready for pictures, and getting to dance with you during your reception!! What a milestone!
