This is what I wore today, for July 4th!
I hope everyone has a wonderful day with friends and family. We are off to dinner and fireworks this evening. I’ve had so much fun making this a “themed event”. ;)
When Ross and I got married, in 2009, we opted for more traditional wedding pictures. I’ll always love those pictures, because they’re memories of our actual wedding day. But, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve really come to love the more artistic shots that so many people have from their wedding. So, for our five year anniversary, I put on my wedding dress, Ross got all dressed up too, and we headed out into the woods to recreate our wedding day, for a moment. I hope you love these shots as much as I do. I am enthralled with the incredible work that Christi did.

There is so much going on in our lives right now; It’s a whirlwind coming in from every direction. But It’s not all bad – quite a bit of it is very very good. Next week, Ross and I will celebrate five years as a married couple. Five. Whole. Years. It barely seems possible. But, I can look back on big events of each year of our marriage – remembering the wonderful times, laughing for hours together (of which there are many), and the difficult times too, where there have been tears – and I realize that yes, it has been five full years of a beautiful marriage. And, I hope God blesses us with many many more years. I do feel like this is only the beginning. Learning to walk in life and grow as a married couple has been the most seemingly insurmountable task, some days. It’s hard to imagine taking two imperfect, and sometimes selfish people, trying to combine their lives, and come out with something good. But by God’s grace, that’s what seems to be happening. An earthly picture of Christ and the church. Marriage is a wonderful thing.
