8 years.

Eight years in to this beautiful thing called marriage. And, oh, what a journey! I wouldn’t trade it for anything. He’s everything. And I love him so. Year #8 has been full of change and adventure. The light of our life, Samuel Sawyer, joined our family. We moved in to a new home. Both started […]

Our Wedding & 5 Years

Well, officially, as of today, it has been 5 years of sweet marriage with my delightful husband! I can’t believe how fast time has flow. Sometimes, it feels like we have been married for so long that I can’t even remember a time when we weren’t married. And other times, I can’t believe that it […]

365 day celebration!

Yesterday was our anniversary as you probably already know from this post. Fortunately and unfortunately, we attended a wedding for most of the day. It was fortunate in that we got to be a part of the lovely Kirsten and Ray’s special day (you might remember Kirsten from here). And it was such a wonderful […]
