Five years ago today, Froggydaddy and I were married at my Grandmother's church by the same minister who married my mom and dad.
We had our reception at the zoo, which was fitting, because there were a lot of monkeys in attendance. It was a great day.
Tonight we had dinner at the Indian restaurant where we had our first date. And I think for the first time in months, we had a conversation that didn't involve diapers, meds, or bills. It was wonderful. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy my husband's company. The waiter was surprised we've been married five years (this is LA, ya know) and he said that we looked like newlyweds. Okay, okay, I'm sure he wanted a good tip, but still it was nice to hear. Because we go out so rarely, we are just thrilled to be in public without a box of cheerios and a diaper bag. I actually wore a dress, and FD opened the car door for me. Sometimes all I need to remember how great life can be is a mango lassi, vegetable korma, some fresh air, and FD making me laugh.
Thank you Aunt "N", Mom and Dad and Grandma W for treating us to dinner and babysitting the Froggy.
