Friday Photo Flashback


Alicia started this carnival because we all have old photos from years back that we love to share!!!! I always look forward to digging through my old pictures and recalling what was going on during that time to figure out what picture I am going to share that week. Head over to Alicia's and join in on the fun!!


This week was an easy one for me because today is a very important day in my life. Today five years ago my husband and I said I DO. This picture was taken the day after we got married on the sky lift at Gatlinburg. We went to Gatlinburg TN for our honeymoon and rented a cabin for the weekend. It was the most peaceful and perfect 3 days I have ever had...I vividly remember driving up there winding around the curvy roads towards the cabin in the dark. I remember feeling a peace come over me knowing that I was safe and in perfect hands...I knew at that moment that I was where I was meant to be and would never ever live another day without this amazing man that was sitting next to me. I have never been more sure about anything in my entire life...I just knew at that very second that everything was perfect. You see I never believed in soul mates...until I met my husband...we met and the world stood still. We climbed mountains to be together...went against what everyone wanted for a good amount of time and made some mistakes along the way but through it all we knew what we wanted and were determined to get it. I knew the day I saw him that my life had changed....remember from before now that I was already engaged but something was different about this man and I wanted to know everything. It still amazes me that there is one person in this world that was meant for me...when I look back at our lives and see how our paths finally crossed I see how all along we were heading in the same direction long before we even knew it. I feel blessed to be able to share my life with such an amazing man. We've been through alot-highs and lows-honestly there have been times in the last year that I had no clue if we would see today. We don't have any big plans for tonight...except for the baseball field of course...are you really surprised? :)

What a sweet tribute to your hubby. Happy anniversary!

No, I'm not surprised you have no big plans. We have spent many an anniversary doing some church activity or something with the kids, lol!

Congratulations on your fifth anniversary!!! Enjoy the baseball games and I hope hubby's back will heal up well after all of these ball games and practices.

It's so nice that you are so in love with him still and that you've weathered a lot together. Five years may not seem long to some, but nowa days it is.

Have a great weekend.

Happy Anniversary! It's our five year anniversary today, too!
We were able to go to dinner, but the rest of the day was spent racing against the clock to get our house ready for company this weekend.
How romantic. NOT!

Happy Anniversary! I bet your life has changed quite a bit since the time that picture was taken. Kids alone totally change everything! I'm so glad you have weathered the storms and are still very much in love.
