5th anniversay: wood

Sometimes days are too busy, life is hectic, time flies by… and before we know it, we have neglected our relationship – our love.

We started our day as usual… coffee with pure maple syrup and cream, and toast topped with avocado, eggs and sauerkraut (you need to try this… it is SO good!!!) Then we exchanged gifts… I gave my husband a wooden cutting board… I know he likes sticking to the theme of traditional wedding gifts, and the 5th year is wood… I’m more of a practical gift-giver. I gave him a couple of other things wrapped in the leftover paper from our wedding gifts (awww! lol). He gave me an adventure… hiking in the woods and a stay in a wooden cabin… he’s more creative than I am.:)He even arranged a sitter so that we could hike solo!

Our time in this little cabin, tucked away in woods, was so perfect and very much needed.

As we listened to

the bugs and birds singing,

and the trees whispering,

our minds slowed,

our hearts opened…

and we could actually listen to,

and hear,

each other!

It was such a beautiful way to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary…

reflecting,

remembering,

and dreaming together!

Instead of completing the hike on the first evening, we picked a spot that felt peaceful… we sat and prayed and listened and just talked… it was amazing.

When you’re still super attached to your momma, you get to stay in the anniversary cabin and sleep in the middle.:)
