Five years?!?!

Today marks our 5th anniversary of wedded bless, but tomorrow will be our 6th anniversary. How do we manage that? Well, we got married in the U.S. a year before we got married here in Greece. Of course, our American (and thus, non-Orthodox) wedding doesn't really count in the eyes of my in-laws. Five years doesn't seem like very long when all these other people I know have been married 15+ years, but I guess it is a bit of an accomplishment for me, since I usually can't stand to be around people (even people I like) for more than a few hours.

We went to Litochoro for the day, accompanied by my parents. It is kinda weird having chaperones for an anniversary celebration, but since Thanos and I get plenty of time alone together, it was ok having my parents along. I was glad to show them my most favorite place in the world, and of course they were in awe of Mt. Olympus.

I'll be sappy now, and say that anniversaries are no more special than any other day I spend with my beloved. I am definitely blessed with the best (ok, although sometimes annoying) husband in the world for me (not to take away from all the other best husbands other women have).

Happy Anniversary to you both. I wonder now if that's why my brother in law doesn't treat me with respect (we were not married in the church), lol...ciao

Thank you Vassia, and welcome!

DD, Thanks! And I know you have the best husband, that is why I qualified it. Lots of us women have the best husband, which is a very good thing.

Thanks Ginger!

Thanks ChezBez, I think you and I are running about the same number of years of married life, aren't we?

Rositta, that just might be it. Or your BIL is a jerk. We are anniversary buddies, aren't we? May is a delightful time to get married.

Nottryingforaboy, thanks!

Thanks Cheryl. It wasn't a trip to a hot springs but it is kinda hard to do something like that with parents in tow. ;)

Belated HAPPY ANNIVERSARY wishes from me to you & Doc!

Of course it's not the years that count, but it's good to keep a tally (Husband & I celebrated our 20th this year).

Na zisete!

Belated congratulations, you two!

I would have left a comment sooner, but I actually was just visiting your wonderful country for a couple of weeks. It went by way too fast...

I've been a black hole, and have ignored everyone and everything. Sorry!

Happy belated anniversary! I know there are many more happy years to come, and I hope you had a great week on Crete :)

P.S. Got a giggle out of the qualifiers near the end.
