Memory lane

Five years ago today, I woke before the sun came up. Had coffee with my soon-to-be sister-in-law and then got super pampered at the salon. Hubby & I helped each other get dressed in all our finery and then were whisked off for photos. Step by step, getting closer to the moment when we would say very special “I do’s” before family and friends.

Feels longer than five years ago. Those closest to us know just how much we’ve managed to pack into that short time together. We’ve seen each other through good times and bad, through sickness and health, through loss and a birth, through poorer and richer. We’ve loved each other, liked each other, been grumpy with each other, and yes, even yelled at each other. But I’m praying we’ll continue to be best friends for life. We’re still learning how to be husband and wife, a never-ending process. And now we’re also learning how to be a papa and mama.

Today I am remembering how it felt to just be “me” on our wedding day:

Sarah's wedding converse shoes

Remembering our closest siblings, that stood by our side that day:

Blake, Sarah, & Aaron at Sarah's WeddingTina & Marcus at Marcus' Wedding

Remembering the beauty of the sky & how dramatic it was:

And being swept away be a kiss:

Happy Anniversary, sweetie.

One thought on “Memory lane

  1. Congrats on 5 years! I am so happy we were able to be there to celebrate with you guys (even tho we weren’t super close at that time, now that we are sharing life in such a way I am so thankful we were both at each others’ weddings)…such an important occasion/decision. You guys put your best effort into everything you do (including your relationship) and it pays off.

    Also – loving your dress!!!

    love, shauna
