In an Instagram post shared Saturday afternoon, Shannen gave a glimpse into the memories she was making while in Mexico.
“5 years ago today I made one of the best decisions of my life. I said ‘I do’ and married my best friend and soul mate @kurtiswarienko,” she wrote while meeting a zebra. “Life has thrown us some huge curves and we have faced them together with strength, love, passion and a desire to stand next to one another thru it all.”
She added, “I have learned what partnership truly is with this man. Yes we love to travel and have adventures together like today… hanging out with Vicky the zebra but everyday is an adventure with Kurt regardless of where we are and what we are doing. #thisistruelove #anniversary #mexico.”
Not to be outdone, Kurt also had some nice to words to share after waking up bright and early to enjoy a special day.
“6′ O’clock in the morning. Electrical storm. Deep in the most magical part of #Mexico,” he wrote. “The universe is alive and kicking. Happy Anniversary @theshando I love you.”

“He loves me with pink hair or no hair,” she recently wrote on Instagram. “I’m blessed to have such a strong support team starting with @kurtiswarienko who loves me more every second. Can’t imagine my life without him.”
She continued, “Cancer is not pleasant but it can bring out the best in relationships or the worse. Thankfully, it has made our marriage stronger.”
