On Thursday, Phil and I celebrated our ten year wedding anniversary!!! Honestly – I can’t believe I am that old! In my defense, we did get married quite young – I was 23 and Phil was 22. (Yes, I married a younger man!)

Happy Anniversary Honey! (Although my husband never reads my blog – so there isn’t much point writing messages to him here!)


And speaking of anniversaries, 5 Minutes for Mom’s one year anniversary came and went and I didn’t even mention it! Am I terrible or what?!?

I knew it was happening sometime in March. But I have been so busy and preoccupied, I didn’t check until last night what date our first post was. It was March 12, 2006.

Thank you so much to all of you who have made this year such a fantastic experience. It seems like a lifetime ago that we started this site. It has grown so much and we have made so many friends. When I started blogging, I had no idea how many wonderful friends we would make – nor how much time it was going to take! LOL

We are so grateful for your support. 5 Minutes for Mom is all about YOU – thank you for making it such a great success.

Hey – I have an idea – to celebrate why don’t we have a huge contest and give away something really big…like a Dyson vacuum? Oh…we are already doing that! ;) Have you signed up yet?

So – no big anniversary parties this time. But I will leave you with a link to one of my first posts (it is a very short post and will take you less than 30 seconds to read) about my sweet son Jackson.

Happy Anniversary Janice!


28 Sarah April 2, 2007 at 4:03 pm

Happy Anniversary! We are celebrating 10 years as well later this year. Also married young and no regrets there. And yeah, I have to drag my husband to the computer from time to time to get him to read something on the blog. He never initiates it saying he lives it.


29 Nan April 2, 2007 at 4:09 pm

Happy anniversary! :^D My husband and I are coming up on our 10th too (in May). And I was younger than you when we got married! LOL!


30 Romie April 2, 2007 at 4:14 pm

Happy anniversary (later). Hubby and I will hit 10 years in June – I married young as well so know what you mean :)


31 Jennifer April 2, 2007 at 11:56 pm

I hope you guys has a wonderful anniversary!


32 Dakota April 2, 2007 at 11:56 pm



33 Tonya April 3, 2007 at 6:27 pm

Happy Anniversary a little late I know. I just wanted to say that I married a younger man as well and I had just turned 21 :) I hope you guys had a great day together.

Hi Janice!
HH and I had an anniversary (6 years) on Saturday 3/31. How neat our anniversaries are so close together!

I, too, had a beautiful post pledging my undying love to post (b/c HH does read my blog) but he was sick & I was miffed about having to skip our day-trip… so I deleted it! :-)


35 Jen April 4, 2007 at 2:20 pm

Happy Anniversary Janice. The wedding picture is so nice. Here’s to many more!!!


36 Nell T. April 5, 2007 at 1:15 am

Oh how lovely! Happy anniversay.


37 Erna April 5, 2007 at 7:11 pm

Happy Anniversary! We’re approaching our 9th. It felt really odd saying that to a newlywed who was older than me recently and only married 5 months. I was married young too (20). :0)
