5 Years and Then Some

Did you know that the traditional 5-year anniversary gift in the UK is sugar?  [Well, that's at least what Wikipedia says, and Wikipedia is never wrong, right?]

One of the things that got me interested in blogging in the first place was visiting the forums at the American Diabetes Association and seeing moms there fretting that their Type 1 kids would never find love or happiness.  Maybe no one would marry their sons or daughters because of diabetes.  Somebody needed to prove those moms wrong and reassure them that everything was gonna be okay.

I was engaged when I started Dorkabetic, then got married a couple of months later.  Matt has never known me without diabetes.  We were together when I got my first pump.  While diabetes can cause some worries that I'm sure couples without diabetes don't have to deal with, it shouldn't stop you from being in love.  I mean, just look at how disgustingly cute we are.  I will give you a high blood sugar just by merely showing you these photos!

OMG. Best. Cake. Ever. Wish I could have it every year.
Mmm, carbs.  There we are, on our big day.  Matt is seriously my best friend, my favorite person in the universe.  I am so glad we found each other.  I couldn't ask for a better husband. 

He goes to the D-Meetups with me! (And Allison and Scott and Kelly and Gary and Betty)
Plus he's just so freaking cute.  I can't stand it.

And silly, too.  We are both very silly people.
Happy Anniversary, Matt!  <3


  1. Such a wonderful post Hannah! Thank you! Happy Anniversary you wacky kids!

  2. "Wikipedia is never wrong, right?"

    Uh ...

    I don't know what to say, so I did a Google search for "Wikipedia is never wrong."

    The interwebs said it, so it must be true. :)
