Happy Anniversary to Us!!!

4 years!!!! an amazing, amazing 4 years it has been! Happy anniversary to us! So- as I have mentioned before here, I didn't preserve my wedding dress and started the tradition of wearing it every year. It's amazing to look back and see how our family has grown and changed. A look back through the years...

Our wedding day 7/21/07

1st anniversary (almost 7/12/08)

2nd anniversary 7/21/09

3rd anniversary 7/21/10

and now our 4th anniversary 7/21/11

I was looking forward to throwing my dress on all day.Fingers crossed that it would fit- and it did. we posed for our family pictures- though was missing Hunter who was in Michigan with his Grandma Carolyn. Hopefully next year he can join us in our photos. The family isn't complete without him. 
Owen loved the veil- again.
We posed for pictures and then headed out to our usual anniversary dinner at Flemings. For the past 3 years we have gone there to celebrate and for the past 3 years have sat at the same table.

We had a nice dinner and then did a little shopping. the perfect end to our night. Thank you to Aunt Jen for watching our crazy kids!

This post actually goes really well with Kellys Korner Show Us Your Life Series. The topic this week is best wedding advice. We're obviously no experts, being that we've only been married 4 years (though together for 6) but I will say this... I truly married my best friend. We have so much love and respect for each other. We listen to what the other says, we care how the other truly feels and we talk. And the best? We laugh. Boy do we laugh. I have always said I will never have frown lines because Sean makes me smile every day. I am truly, the luckiest girl and very, very blessed.


  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE how you wear your dress!! I did preserve mine and maybe that was a mistake ... it's just sitting in a box!

  2. I love that you wear your dress every year!

  3. May your and husband continue to be blessed with a good life together!
    I love that you wear your dress every year. I still have mine and this would be a great way to celebrate our anniversary!

  4. What a neat tradition to wear your wedding dress on every anniversary! After 17 years, I can no longer fit into mine :(

  5. So sweet!! Happy Anniversary. I am LOVING the dress idea. Although, I'm nervous to think about whether or not I'd fit in mine.
