May 5th is a day that is very special to Gary and I for a few reasons.
The best reason is that he proposed on this day. We had a party and invited friends and family. He asked me to marry him in front of all of them. ALL OF THEM! I was shaking and perhaps tearing up. It was a great proposal. It was a great day and we like to remember all the good things about this date by celebrating yearly with out friends.
We hosted another party yesterday and it was great. Very low key this year. Intimate and pleasant.
The kids had a blast hitting the pinata.
The adults had a good time chatting. The kids ran around and played outside for hours. The food was good (if I do say so myself!) and I even drank a beer. *picks everyone's jaws off the floor* We had awesome desserts. We had tons of food left. My freezer has lots of precooked meat. (always good for a lazy day!)
We love our traditions in this house. We love our friends. We love this day and what it stand for, for us. Even though things have been so stressful and not good all around for me, days like today make me hopeful for the future.
