Our Anniversary

Wednesday my husband and I celebrated 9 years together as husband and wife.
Since it was a school night we celebrated at home with our two favorite people.
It seemed fitting we celebrate as a family in the home we have created with each other.
I decorated the table pretty and made a yummy veggie lasagna(recipe shared below) and even though we sat at home and ate our dinner just like any other night at home it was perfect.
