wedding day 2004
Well, its that time again, time to bring out the old wedding albums, cringe at what babies we were, how little we really knew each other, how we definitely didn't know what were signing up for and how much uncertainty and even anxiety there were behind those picture-perfect moments on our wedding day.......
Then we happily close up the books, take a deep sigh of relief that, by God's grace, we have MOVED ON! I honestly never expected married life to be this good. I knew Handy Andy was the one for me when i was just barely 19...but honestly, it was a major leap of faith. We had just turned 20 when we were married and didn't know but a bit about who we were as individuals let alone who we were as a couple. But our God is more faithful than i ever really gave him credit for and has created a friendship and a love sweeter than i ever thought was possible (NOT perfect, mind you! but still very sweet). We've now come to happily appreciate that instead of ever having the chance of "falling out" of a young twitter-pated love, we instead got to grow into a true love we never really knew existed.
So, Happy 8th(right?) Anniversary Cutie Pie ;)
BABIES!!!! i seriously look 15. See what i mean? Who took us seriously!! :)
1st anniversary 2005...or at least close to it...in reality i was 7 months pregnant on our anniversary and not feeling a bit photogenic.
3rd Anniversary 2007- recreated the picture where Andrew proposed....awwwwwww
one of our favorite pics...taken on our 1st generation flip phone! haha
5th Anniversary 2009 - took a quickie, and i mean a 25 hour quickie trip (that Andrew piloted!) to LA. super, super fun.
6th Anniversary 2010- "the honeymoon we didn't have" in Mexico...turned out a little less than idyllic...think: diarrhea, pregnancy, killer sunburn, smashed toe nail- poor andrew; i was seriously a walking hazard for 5 days. :)
yay. we're finally going home. heehee
fun fun fun
2012 - I love you sweetie! Looking forward to another year...and a date night next week when the sickies in our house are well again. ;)
