Wow--Number 5!

Today, Dee and I are celebrating 5 years of marriage. It's been a crazy (but good) 5 years. We have moved twice and had 2 children. Dee got a job coaching at the high school level, and I finally earned a head coaching position. Then I gave up coaching a year later. We've watched our parents go through a heart surgery, a head injury, and an autoimmune disorder. I suffered an ectopic pregnancy. Dee has been dealing with diabetes and sarcoidosis. All I can say is WOW. I am so glad that he is by my side every step of the way. Here's to another 5 years, and then another, and another, get my drift :-)

These are some of my favorite wedding pictures. Keep in mind that we had film (gasp), not digital at our wedding. Five years ago, many photographers were not quite ready to make the leap to digital (for weddings anyway). These are scans I did a long time ago before I had a good scanner, so the quality is not the best. One thing that I am going to do this summer is have my negatives (our photographer gave them to us) scanned; then I will have high-quality digital images of my wedding photos.

These two kiddos have definitely changed a lot! And my little niece in the Cute Cousins post below attended the wedding in her Mommy's womb. I can't believe how fast little ones get big!

I have to say that our wedding day was absolutely gorgeous. I was taking a huge risk by having an outdoor wedding in June in Texas. How we ended up with no rain and with a lovely, 80 degree day, I will never know. Well, I do know how...I prayed a lot for great weather!

This is us on our Honeymoon. Since we had the whole summer off, we took a "road trip" to Florida. That way, we didn't have to return on a certain day; we could stay until we wanted or our money ran out :-) This is us at Disney World Animal Kingdom. It was our first time to visit WDW. Now we can't wait to take the kids.

Well, that's all for now. I hope you enjoyed my little trip down memory lane!
