5 years, holy crab!

Yesterday Kristofor and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary. I'm sure everyone says this, but has it really been that long? It's hard to believe! 

We went out to eat at Kobe, an awesome Japanese restaurant near where we live. I had a perma-smile the whole time, the food was so delicious. 

This lucky cat thing greeted us at the door... but we couldn't figure out what that other little critter was??

This morning we were getting ready for the day together and I mentioned how hard it's been for me lately to motivate myself. I don't get it - the weather is lovely, I'm not overwhelmed by work or school, but for some reason I struggle every day to get things done.

I expected him to say something like "Yeah, that sucks. It's hard sometimes. You'll be fine." But instead we had a long conversation about things we have to look forward to this year and next. He reminded me that we've been in this "going to school" stage of our lives for a really long time, but there's a light at the end of the tunnel. (We'll both hopefully graduate with our Bachelor's this December) He listened to me vent, gave me helpful suggestions for how I can push through how I'm feeling, and even told me how he motivates himself.

It was nothing big, just a nice reminder of how good he is for me. It felt good to have his encouragement and support.

I'm so blessed to have him. I'm so excited to see where our life takes us.
