Seven Years Ago Today....

Our Wedding

It's hard to believe that my husband and I took that walk down the aisle seven long years ago. Where has the time gone?! A lot has happened in those seven years. We've experienced job changes, graduations, a home sale, and 1.5 children in that amount of time. Speaking of 1.5 children, we are well on our way to a full 2, as today marks the first day of my third trimester. Now, for a walk down memory lane...

We Took Engagement Photos 

Engagement photos from seven years ago.

It seemed as though everyone was having engagement photos taken, and we JUST COULDN'T miss our opportunity! Engagement photos are now the first thing that I always recommend couples cut out of their budget in order to make room for other things!

Wedding Shower Time!

We had our shower at Gibson's, which was AHHHHHHHMAZING. Turned out nicer than the wedding - no joke! Both were a blast though, of course! 

THE Wedding!

The day flew by. It was an awesome experience being surrounded by all our friends and family on this day. MEMORIES!

Party Time!

Honeymoon In Greece - Santorini 

Greek Honeymoon

One week after we left Greece, the rioting got so intense that most tourist destinations were closed for a period of time. One month after our wedding, the dress store where I got my dress (Eva's Bridal) burned to the ground and all the brides lost their dresses. Four months after our wedding, our venue closed. I'd say we had everything wrapped up just in the nick of time! 

Our First Born Was Brought Home

Our First Born

After spending weeks on Pet Finder, we found this little brown pup who needed a home. We took a 10 hour round trip drive to pick her up, and knew that she was a keeper right away! 

Cabo x3

Cabo Vacay

This one time, we went to Cabo three times in one year. We first went with friends, then sat in on one of those timeshare presentations while we were there. You know, the ones where you should never go on?! Where they give you too much free food and beer? Well, thank goodness we didn't BUY a timeshare, but we did buy one trip back. And then our good friends had their wedding in Cabo six months after that. Boom, Cabo three times in one year.

12 Weeks To Go!

Building a new home

And this is where we stand today! Just 12 weeks until our second born is here. I am pretty sure we will not be moved in by the time our baby arrives, but it is wild to look back on all that has happened in just seven short years. I cannot wait to see what the next seven hold, and many many more! Cheers to the hubs, for helping to make all of this possible! Love you!
