Fifteen years ago today I walked down this beautiful aisle to exchange I Dos with Honey.
I had so much fun yesterday looking through old pictures to find a few from our “big” anniversaries. This was our five year anniversary. We had just arrived in St. Lucia to celebrate on what was our first trip away from baby John.
Sister took these beautiful pictures of us in her courtyard on our 10th anniversary. We drove off in the Jeep for a night at the beautiful Serenbe Inn.
We’ve done so much in our fifteen years together, with our proudest moments involving raising our family. I’m not so naive as to think we get it all right, but I do know these two are wholly and completely loved by their parents.
And, of course, we finally got our girl as well. She completed our family and loves us all more than we deserve.
In addition to our boys and Elsa, we share a mutual love of reading, murder mystery shows, Georgia Tech, cards and puzzles, Disney, Alanis Morisette and Zac Brown, movie nights, game nights, seafood and sushi, road trips, sudoku, costume parties, pool lounging and math. And now, I’m adding silly matching t-shirts to the list…
We’ve been saying this in unison ever since Frozen came out four years ago. (We are dorks and we own that.) Sometimes they are actual sandwiches, but usually just the proverbial kind.
When I spied these at Once Upon a Mickey Tee I knew we had to have them. Fifteen years seemed like the perfect occasion. Don’t think that we don’t love the fact that when we behave like this it is increasingly mortifying to the eleven year old :-)
Honey is smart, hardworking and honest. He’s also so incredibly patient and tenderhearted and kind. And I think he’s incredibly handsome. Some days I can hardly believe he’s mine – I still remember the first time I laid eyes on him on my first day of college! He was dating an older ZTA who was tall and skinny and had long blonde hair. I never would have guessed that we’d go on our first date three and half years later.
These fifteen years flew by. I mean, it seems like yesterday that we walked down the aisle. But I can also hardly remember life before him. You know?!
Thank you to Sister for taking the beautiful pics of us!! I look forward to growing very, very old with this man. Happy 15 years, Honey!
