5 years...

5 years ago today, Sean and I decided to make thing official as in dating official. We decided to take that plunge into a relationship with no idea where it would led us. Obviously that decision led us to marriage and then in two months (!) parenting. 5 years ago seems like a long time ago but it has really gone very fast. There is no one else I would rather have a 5 year dating relationship with of course. 

With going back to work last week, Sean has been amazing. He has stepped up to make dinners and do the cleaning. I came home yesterday from work after a long commute home thanks to Halloween and he had cleaned the house, bought mums and carnations and put them in the bathroom for when my mom, aunt, sister and cousins arrive today for my baby shower tomorrow. Marriage is about team work and I am so thankful for a husband who understands that and acknowledges when roles have to change at times during marriage. 

5 years ago, we both decided each other was someone we wanted to get to know better, to see if each other was who God intended to be a marriage partner, and to see if at the end of the day despite any fighting or arguments, we were still best friends and life partners. Together, we have pushed each other's buttons and said stuff we regret but still receive forgiveness and love from the other. 

Sean knows me better than anyone else and at the end of a work day, there is nothing like falling into his arms as he gives me a welcome home hug. There is no one I would rather attend church with each week, to attend weekly small groups with and to challenge each other's walk with God to help each other grow closer to God and subsequently each other too. 

Happy 5 years Sean~ here is to 5 plus many many years together :-)

I love you Sean and so glad that 5 years ago we decided to see if this relationship was worth it and indeed it was :-)
