5th Anniversary

Justin and I celebrated our 5th Wedding Anniversary last night and let me just say.... Justin pulled out ALL THE STOPS. As amazing as he usually is, I could have never in a million years expected such an incredible surprise. 

First... he pretended like we were just going out to eat at a restaurant. (Since we are dirt poor I honestly was expecting to go to a fast food restaurant.) When he pulled into a neighborhood I started getting a little confused but he said he just took a wrong turn and was cutting through the neighborhood to get to the next main road. I didn't think anything of it because I was too distracted looking and pointing at all of the super cute houses in the downtown Mesa Historic District. 

Suddenly we stopped in front of a house and I immediately recognized it as Justin's kindergarden teacher Frankie's house. Not only is Frankie's house the cutest in the whole world but Frankie herself is the cutest women in the whole world. Anyway, we came inside and she had such an incredible table display set up for us. She put so much time into every tiny detail including the heart shaped napkins, fancy crystal and tableware, candles, roses (which were from Justin and his parents), and romantic music playing in the background. It literally took my breathe away and made me tear up...

As amazing as the display was, it was nothing compared to the four coarse meal that Frankie prepared for us with all of my favorite foods. For an appetizer she served the most delicious bruschetta, then a yummy caesar salad, followed by the best lasagna I've ever tasted, and lastly a cheesecake with fresh strawberries that was to die for. 

After dinner Justin took me to the exact spot where he proposed to me 6 years ago and we reminisced about all the good times. The whole night seemed like a dream. I'm not sure what I did to deserve such an amazing husband but I  couldn't be more grateful for all that he does for me. I love you Justin and I can't wait to spend the rest of eternity with you :)
