5 Years

Five years ago today, my life changed forever.

It was the most magical day ever, everything a girl could have wanted for her fairy tale wedding.
DSCN5357 Why yes, that is a horse drawn carriage. I’m totally not kidding about the fairy tale part.

We were surrounded by friends and family and the amount of support and love in every second of the day took my breath away. We needed it too, at the tender ages of 22 and 24, having just spent our 8 month engagement on opposite coasts with no where to live and no idea how we would get there.


The 60 months since that one day have been the best and most challenging of my life. We were such babies, like little kids playing at being married instead of actual grown ups. Through deployments, months of living in different states, buying a house, and financial and emotional challenges we managed to hang on and survive because of our love for each other and because we’re too stubborn to call it quits.The birth of our beautiful baby boy has totally changed our relationship, one million percent for the better. It took a few months to adjust but right now I can say I am even more madly in love with E than I was the day we said “I do.” He has become a better husband since becoming a father and I am thrilled that our little family is so full of happiness and laughter.

    That was one of the absolute sweetest things I’ve ever read! First you make my ovaries melt because your kid is so damn adorable, and now you’re melting my frozen little heart into a puddle of ahhh’s and eye-dabbing tenderness. One of these days, there isn’t going to be anything left of me, and I’ll have you to blame.

    Also, that top photo from your wedding is one of my top ten favorite wedding pictures of all time. You guys looked so ridiculously happy, and it’s such an artsy and wonderful shot.

    Happy anniversary!!! I hope you two will be able to get out of the house and spend some time together to celebrate :)

    Happy Anniversary! This is a beautiful post and it looks like a wedding for the ages. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a groom look so pleased. Congrats and I hope you guys can celebrate. Thank you so much for dispelling the notion that children automatically means the end of love and romance.

    Oh, I’m tearing up! What a lovely post, and a lovely wedding. I’m glad that having a baby has made your marriage stronger. So many people have babies for the wrong reasons, but it sounds like you and Evan were at the right place to do it.

  8. Oh, you looked beautiful at your wedding! Happy Anniversary, sweetie!
