8 years


This picture always makes me laugh. Why are we sitting so far apart? I suppose it's because we had only been dating a few months and Evan was meeting my parents for the first time. One of them took the picture. We were so young!
Eight years ago I married Evan. I was twenty and he was twenty-two. We had no idea what life had in store for us. We weren't orthodox yet, he had not finished college, I had never lived on my own and got my drivers license only weeks before our wedding. We were definitely young and maybe a little stupid but I think things turned out pretty well. Between a sassy toddler, a teething baby and loads of laundry I haven't had a chance to get terribly sentimental and gush over our love but I did dig up a these old pictures and they make me happy. I love this man and he loves me. May God grant us many more years!

Congratulations! Both photos are good, but I know what you mean about the "what were we doing" in some.

Many Years!

aawww...these are so great! Maybe you sat far apart due to the embedding of ccbc rules and regulations. HAHA... Thanks to them I learned that there really is no such thing as an innocent frontal hug. :)
