Where we came from, and where we're going....

On Friday my Mister and I will have been wed five years. They've been hard years as often as good ones, for a whole host of reasons, but we're not giving up. I think it's a sign of times to come that we'll be celebrating our anniversary this year as a family at the Gandhi-King Conference in Memphis. In honor of where we've come from, and where we're headed, I share the following sometimes telling quizlet I filled out at a mama friend's behest. (I'm not at all sure how the tagging thing goes, but post away in the comments if you'd like to share your own answers.....)

1. Who eats more?

sometimes me.
