four years!


Four years ago today, I married that guy in the blue striped tee. Later today I get to walk down that same wedding aisle at the Naval Academy Chapel as we rehearse for my sister's wedding in a few days. Some days I still get butterflies when I look at him, and having been through two deployments, many separations, countless arguments, and traveling adventures galore, I love that I can genuinely call him my best friend. God has blessed us richly. We're pretty lucky that we got the cutest darn kid to raise, too.

dress:: {target}
lace vest:: {simply audrey}
shoes:: {reflects c/o blowfish shoes}

Speaking of lovey-dovey stuff, I loved reading this article from Huffington Post (originally written by Lydia Netzer) entitled 15 Ways to Stay Married 15 Years. The tips are a bit out of the ordinary but I found myself nodding my head to most of them! 

On a less mushy note, like most Blowfish Shoes I've received, these Reflects are my new favorites. Casual enough to run around with a kid in tow, comfortable enough to do it all day, and in my opinion, cute enough to wear with a dress. I definitely related to this post from Sarah at Frills for Thrills about how her style has changed since becoming a mom!

  10. My little sister got married on my 4th anniversary and in the same place we got married. At first I was annoyed she'd choose OUR DAY, but now I'm kind of glad! It sure made for a great way to celebrate our anniversary. Congratulations to you both!
