My 7 year anniversary with Joshua is coming up soon (September 19th) and I have been trying to think of what to do for him. I decided last night that I am going to put together a little album of our 11 years together (since we were dating/engaged for 4 years before we got married).

I was going through a ton of old pictures tonight and it made me laugh to think of all the things that we have been through so far. For some reason, I had forgotten that he paid one of his friends, who is a pilot, to take us flying for our 6 month anniversary. I had forgotten about how we begged my parents to let us get married before I graduated college. We took my mom out to lunch and had a whole speech about how we were ready and all of the benefits to us being married. I mean, we had already been living together for like two years...Finally they took pity on us and gave their seal of approval. I had even sort of forgotten how we did a totally impromptu dance to You Are the One I Want from Grease at our wedding. I am super shy and get nervous when people look at me, but I lost myself in that glorious moment with my new husband.

I can't wait to see what other memories pop up as I make this for him.


  1. Aw! That's so awesome! I love thinking about those kinds of things-well, they actually just pop into my head for no reason or prompting and that's what I really love. It's hard to just remember all the amazing things people do for each other.
    (Speech?! How cute!)

    Oh yeah, 11 years is a fucking long time!

  2. That is so awesome!!!
    Oh and I second what Courtney said~ Marriage and relationships are hard ~ 11 years is a huge accomplishment!
    Love the story about the impromptu dance at your wedding! :)

  3. Aww! That is so sweet. I love to hear happy stories! I love your Grease dance.
    We danced down the aisle to footloose as we left our ceremony. One of my favorite things.
    Happy anniversary!
