Our 5th Wedding Anniversary

This July 9th Lane and I celebrated our 5th year of marriage.  Wow, how time flies. I had spent the weeks leading up to the date trying to convince Lane to do an all out Korean celebration with me.  This meant wearing couple shirts, going to Namsan Tower (a popular place for couples, featured in many K-drama shows) and “locking our love” on the tower (popular activity for couples).  Though these types of things aren’t really what we are into, I figured, we’ll only have one anniversary in Korea.  I didn’t think it was going to happen until a few days before when Lane suddenly agreed to it!  Hoooray!  We did do one thing that fit with who we are….eating delicious Mexican food. Num Num Num.  We actually celebrated a few days late as we were exhausted from all the fun we had with Jim and Lois while they were here.  Here are some photos of the event.

mmmmmmm tacos and burritos.

sooo many locks on the fence. many with messages.

Good view from below the tower too.

our locks successfully locked. FOREVER!

Korean anniversary celebration...COMPLETE 🙂

On a side note, I found wearing the matching shirts to be extremely embarrassing!  Even though it was my idea, It took all that was in me to not hide my face the whole time.  I was pretty well adjusted by the end of the night, but it took a little time.
