7 years ago yesterday, I married this guy:

We joke that we're never able to celebrate our anniversary because we always have major life events happening around our anniversary (move to Texas, first day at LeTourneau, another move to Texas, move to Afghanistan, etc.).  But this year takes the cake for major life event occurring around our anniversary:

Our ICN nurses assured us that Aurelia would be in good hands if we wanted to pop out for a quick date.  So, we left our 1 week old with the babysitters and went out to eat.  Granted, we talked about our daughter for most of the evening and ran into our pediatrician and his wife at the restaurant.  But it was refreshing to be together and out of the hospital (my first time in a week!).  And Aurelia was sleeping soundly, just the way we left her when we got back.

It's been 7 years of adventure and so much love.  I can't wait to see the adventures our future holds, where we'll go and what we'll do.  And I'm so excited to have this little bugger joining us for the adventure:
