Holy Kermoli, we made it to five years! I had been bugging Zach since our anniversary last year that this needed to be big and fun and amazing since it was our 5-year. We talked about Mexico, Europe, Alaska, Hawaii, cruises, all-inclusives, hikes, shows, you name it!
As time went on and this year got crazy, deep down I knew it wasn't going to happen. But, Zach had requested a whole week off at my request so we decided to just keep the time off and spend some time home together, since that has been so rare this year! It turned out perfect! Terran and Zach finally got some really quality time together and we got to be a family, together every day. It was so great. On our actual anniversary, we got lunch as a family and spent time at the Thanksgiving Point gardens. Neither of us had been there before and it was so beautiful! Then, we got a non-family babysitter for the first time and went on a date and did a little shopping. We went to an italian restaurant. I didn't like what I ordered so Zach was the perfect gent and traded me entrees. He did it without even thinking, just being a sweetheart! We talked some about our favorite things over the last five years and had some laughs and reminiscing.
Terran did really well with the sitter and we had a good time just being together. It is so much fun to date Zach some again. It has definitely taken us a while since Terran was born, but we are appreciating the time together a lot now.
