5th Anniversary Memories

Michael and I recently celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary.  I can’t believe the time has gone by so fast.  I know that seems cliche but it really is true.  Michael is truly an incredible blessing in my life, plus he’s my favorite person ever.  🙂  Since the beginning of our marriage, we have been taking turns planning our trips for our anniversary.  This year was Michael’s turn, and he did an amazing job.  So romantic and sweet!
This year, we went to this adorable bed and breakfast in Fort Worth, Texas called Hattie May Inn.  The house was built in 1904 with some of the original furniture.  Linda was our sweet hostess who told us several stories while giving us a tour.
One of my favorite stories was about one of the original owners.  He had several sons and only one daughter.  His daughter loved to story of Romeo and Juliet, so her dad built her a Juliet balcony that faced downtown.  So sweet!
We also explored downtown Fort Worth, since we had never been here before.  Because our anniversary is after Christmas, we got to see all the beautiful Christmas lights downtown.  It’s one of the perks of having an anniversary at the end of the year.

We watched Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.  We went to the theater in downtown Fort Worth which was awesome!  It had two floors with theaters on both floors.  Our theater was on the second floor, and the theater, itself, was huge!  The movie was pretty awesome as well.  Lots of action, and a nice little twist at the end. I would definitely recommend it.

On the second day after an amazing country breakfast at the Inn, we visited the Kimball Art Museum.  The current exhibition was the Caravaggio and his followers in Rome.  This was the only place in America that was showing this exhibit, so we thought we would check it out.  The paintings were amazing, unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture of any of them because we were too busy looking at them.  My favorite was The Fortune Teller by Simon Vouet.

Overall, the trip was wonderful.  My husband is the best, and I am so lucky to be sharing my life and adventures with him.  I am truly blessed.

If you are in a relationship, how long have you been together?  What has been your favorite trip/activity to do together?

  1. thanks for visiting my blog and your sweet comments! Dan and I lived in TX for a while and took a trip out to Fort Worth too, not at Christmas, but it was an amazing time walking through the streets of what felt like an old Western movie!

  2. We’ve been married 3.5 years–and I agree that time flies! 🙂 I love that there was a Juliet balcony. I totally would’ve been quoting Shakespeare, probably the whole trip, including while I was eating my fabulous cupcake from the Cupcakery. But I’m dorky like that. 😛

    Thanks SO much for your sweet comments on my blog!

    1. Yea, the balcony was so sweet (I stuck my head out there, but didn’t get a picture). Oh man, I love Shakespeare too! My brother and I used to act out Hamlet’s first scene when we were little (pretty much because we thought “unfolding yourself” was hilarious, cause we took it literally).

      Thank you for visiting my blog! I love reading yours!

  3. What a great recap of the trip! Love the photos 🙂 Our third year wedding anniversary is in April, but we dated for about five years before we got married so I feel like we’ve been together forever. My husband is my best friend too and my favorite person 🙂 We went to Colonial Williamsburg for our “honeymoon” and first anniversary. But I think I enjoyed our trips to the beach best (while dating.)

    1. Williamsburg sounds really neat! I like the beach to a certain extent. Unfortunately every time I go, I get a horrendous sunburn no matter what sunscreen I slather on! But the beach is so peaceful, it’s hard to stay away!
