• 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.

       We had our first date 20 years ago today when we were practically babies in high school. We were on and off (and on and off and on and off) through college, survived a 3 year long distance relationship before there was FaceTime and when one of us didn't even have a cell phone. We've done 11 years of sharing a bathroom, almost 6 years of marriage, and now almost 3 babies. Some days have been so easy, and others are incredibly hard. Each day we make a choice to love each other and enjoy this beautiful life together. And to do it our way, following our dreams and raising our children to be open minded, good and kind people. Our way, ride or die, till the wheels fall off. Me and you. Happy 20 year date-a-versary my social media-less hunk of a husband.❤️ We should have gotten a sitter  //  by @hazelnutphoto from our gender reveal, which I'll be sharing next week!
       Had a super #happymail day thanks to the 2016 calendar preview from @papersource. At first I was all like "the color, the design, the pretty, oh my! " but then I thought "2016, January, due date, holy shit! " I feel like the next 6 months just flashed before my eyes. Slow down 2015. The calendars and planners are real purty tho. #mypscalendar
