I cannot believe it has already been 5 years of marriage for us!
I wanted this anniversary to be extra special so I decided to create a post all about us!
We have been together since 2009 and it seems like time is just flying by. I guess that’s a good thing.
I figured I wanted to create a post about looking back through the years to see how much we have changed and grown together.
We have been luckily enough to celebrate so many amazing anniversaries together, but I always love looking back and seeing the little moments in-between.
So get ready for a little stroll down memory lane with me.
It all started back in 2009…
Boy meets girl, girl falls crazy in love with boy, you know the usual fairytale story
This is the first picture I have of him and I absolutely love it! 2009!
Our first Football game together in 2009!
This is one of my favorite pictures from July 4th, 2009. You can see how silly we are.
In 2010 I graduated from undergrad
In 2011 we adopted luna and sammy!
In 2011 we also went to Halloween Horror Nights and killed the costume game!
Also, in 2011 my amazing husband dressed up like the riddler and created a treasure hunt all over our house! It was amazing!
In 2012 we decided to get professional Batman & Catwoman pictures taken, because we are awesome! (I think this was a dating anniversary surprise).
2012 was also the first time I started sporting bangs as an adult
In May 2012 we got engaged. Jesse proposed to me on this gorgeous private dock in Key West, FL at sunset while playing our favorite song and sipping on wine. It was magical and this picture was taken the next morning on the beach.
This picture was another visit to Halloween Horror Nights in 2012. I thought this red hair looked so good at the time. LOL WHAT WAS I THINKING!!!?!
In November 2012 we made our Save the Date cards that would be sent out to all our wedding guests. My mother was the amazing photographer behind these.
Then, In 2013…
Then in 2013, we registered for our wedding
We also took incredible engagement photos in 2013. (My mother was once again the amazing photographer)
And in 2013 we had our rehearsal dinner at Jesse’s mother house which was so comforting and relaxing before the big day!
Then on October 13th, 2013 we got MARRIED!!
It was a magical day, this is the first picture I took of both my engagement and wedding band in 2013.
In 2013 we also did a mini honeymoon to Halloween Horror Nights and my husband has these shirts made for us!
Then in 2014, Married life starts and we are the best at it! Matching shorts and face masks!
Then in 2014, we go on an AMAZING cruise for our true honeymoon!
Then, in 2015…
In 2015 I start PA school!
My best friend Casey also gets married in 2015!
2015 is also the year we took my all time favorite trip to Baltimore and Washington, D.C.
In 2015, while we were in Baltimore we got to play with Penguins!
Then in 2016, I kiss goodbye to my husband non tattooed skin right before he starts his huge sleeve.
In 2016 we also go to endless Panther’s Hockey games. This one was Star Wars Night!
In 2016, I also Have my first PA school social.
Durning one of my PA school breaks in 2016 we head down to Key West for a little getaway.
Oh yeah and 2016, was the year I started having my husband cut my hair! True Trust right there.
Then, in 2017…
Then in 2017, I buy my baby snowflake. Yes I named my car Snowflake.
In 2017, I graduated PA school!
We went to Disney in 2017 to celebrate me being done with PA school!
Then in November 2017, we road trip it from FL to NC for my first real PA job interview.
Then in Dec 2017 we pack up our lives to move to Asheville, NC.
Our first night in our new place in NC in 2017. We had to sleep on an air mattress because the movers didn’t arrive till morning.
2017: We immediately celebrated our new place in a new state that night. BTW we did not like the champagne lol.
We have our first night out in NC in 2017!
Now in 2018…
In 2018 we get our first look at what it is really like to live in snow and freezing winters!
In 2018 we see our first NC waterfall!
In 2018, Jesse buys his first NC car!
In 2018 we also go on our first real hike together!
And now, in 2018, we are living happily ever after here in NC.
So there you have it, a little trip down memory lane to celebrate our 5 year Anniversary. Of course we have been together much longer than 5 years and I am so grateful for every single year together.
This year we will be spending our anniversary in Disney again. We always loved getting away to Orlando when we lived in FL so we figured why not keep the tradition alive and do the same for this anniversary.
I have to say one of my all time favorite compliments that we still get is, “are you guys newlyweds?” 🙂 To me it’s a huge compliment if people still think we are newlyweds. It means our affection and love for each other has not decreased at all.
Talk to you guys soon!
