5 Year Anniversary

Thursday, July 2, 2015

Hello Everyone!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic summer so far. 

Things in the Simmonds household have been in full swing as we are getting ready to move to Oklahoma. It was a sad day the day I came to the realization that we were to leave my home state, my job, my home, and my family and friends to support the Mr. in what I hope will be the beginning of an exciting career as a football coach at a 6A high school.

We put our house on the market and are in the process of selling it to a nice family from Washington. I can only pray that they enjoy this house and our community as much as we did. 

It seems like every 5 years something monumental happens in our lives. 10 years ago I met the Mr. on a hot summer Wednesday night at our local karaoke joint and 5 years later we got married.
Fast forward 5 years, and not only are we celebrating our 5 year anniversary, but also our babies being almost 6 months, and us moving to Oklahoma. 

We got engaged in September of 2009 and decided on a June wedding since we were both teachers at the time and knew we would have time off to prepare before and afterwards. I booked the best available date and settled on
June 26th
We had a wonderful lunch at Estillo Gaucho, our favorite Churrascaria Steakhouse in Frisco, and then headed out to Perkins Chapel at SMU where we got married. 

My how our lives have changed since then.

We have gone through so much, including buying a house, putting several stamps on our passports, having our twins, and now making a significant cross state move, but no matter what the challenge we face, we are better as one than alone, and that is all that matters.

Happy Anniversary Mr. Simmonds!
