• 5 Years of Marriage

    our 4 year anniversary | oh lovely day | photo by jennifer roper

    Today is my 5 year wedding anniversary. It was a magical day and I love reliving it each year on my blog and reconnecting with my husband on a date.  The wedding details are lovely, the wedding planning is fun, but what really matters is the marriage and the love. In four years we’ve been through some stuff, had two babies (one just two weeks ago!), had successes and failures, had complete and total joy, and a few good fights, and through it all, we remember our vows every day (we had them put on a Paloma’s Nest heirloom bowl so we can always remember them):

    I take you to be my spouse, my constant friend, and my love from this day forward.

    I vow to be your faithful partner, in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, in joy as well as sorrow.

    I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, and to cherish and respect you.

    I will love and honor you all the days of my life.

      What a wonderful idea to put your vows where you can always remember them! Also, adore that shot with you hidden behind the parasol.

       Even though this guy was up at 5 am (oy!) I am working hard trying to get a Mother's Day gift guide + giveaway ready to go live this week. It's a really good one full of all of my favorite things (this photo is a major hint at one of the prizes) so I'm taking volunteers to come hold this teething baby so I can work. Any takers??? (Mostly kidding...) | And yes, you could win one of these custom silhouettes (or something else from @palomasnest if you prefer). Look at that rendition of Calvin: his facial features, his curl, his no-neck, his puffy baby chest, and his little neck fat roll. It is him to a T ❤️ #OLDgoodiesguide #OLDlovesmoms
       What I would have given to have a @zac_posen bridal gown back when I was shopping for my wedding dress! I just got to see his new bridal collection at @davidsbridal and it is beyond fab. Classic with an edge, modern twists on traditional bridal styles, in silhouettes that make all women look good, and made for the everygirl's budget too. I'm crossing my fingers for a red carpet event soon so I can wear one of his special event gowns. I'm going to share more on the blog this week so stay tuned. And the gentleman behind the gowns was just as lovely as his designs.
