5 Years

wedding3

Today is Matt and my (edit: thanks for the heads up on the grammar mistake) five year anniversary!!! I'm pretty sure the first thing I said to him that day at the end of the aisle, 5 years ago, was 'you friggen cut your hair!'. Indeed, his sister-in-law had got a hold of him that morning and whipped his cute scruffy style into business shape. And I hate business hair; cut so short at the sides that you can see scalp.

5 years later, despite the fcat that he still sometimes gets the business cut, despite the fact that we butt heads over politics and despite the fact that he always lets me know that he is the only skilled driver on the road, I'm glad I ended up with the sweetest guy I know. Sometimes he drops by my job site with a drink and a kiss and I can't think of a better sight in the world, than his truck coming up the driveway. This is love.

How exciting for you two!! My other half also thinks he's the best driver out there...and that women and foreigners are the worst (and if it's a woman foreigner, forget it!)

Congratulations! I agree about the man hair. I think you mean "Matt and my" or maybe "Matt's and my". Either way, "I's" is not a word.

I was going to text you, then I remembered you were in Holland so I became sad.
Happy anniversary. One of the most funnest weddings (and certainly most different) I have ever been to/ been part of.

Congratulations times a thousand!

My senior prom date got a haircut the day of and it was definitely the first thing I noticed! Senior prom is NOTHING compared to a wedding, and I'm glad you can see him through thick and thin hair. :)
