5 years and the best present I’ve ever given him


5 years ago today, two dorky kids went on their first date together. Inseparable ever since, we’ve taken many, many dorky pictures together.

Enjoy a few from the first couple years.

We were awkward. We were desperately trying to be cool. But we were first and foremost, head over heels in love.

{Still are!♥}




















I look at these pictures and smile, just remembering each occasion and the emotions that came with it.

I also look at these pictures and think of the poor little, extra fair skinned babies we will beget together.


{This, most likely, will not be our child. Ours would be more pale white all over instead of just on her tushie. Or perhaps this same picture, but with the tanned portion more of a sun-seared red. I mean, even our dog is white…}


Finally, on this anniversary, I did give Nick the very best present I have EVER given him.


The gift of me… the mute version of me.

I’ll explain: Beautiful spring weather + crappy allergies to the world in bloom = full blown laryngitis

Yesterday, I could literally only whisper. Even my coughs were eerily quiet.

This made it very difficult to cheer on Kentucky to victory last night, but it looks like they didn’t need me anyway, what with our 30 point win… GO CATS!

{and can I say that I’m just LOVING that Obama picked Kansas to win over UK in the final game and they’re already out. hehehehe….}

Back to my “gift” - Nick has made several jokes about how much he’s enjoying all of this. I can’t spout off a sassy retort in return, but let me assure you, my ability to inflict pain is still fully intact ;)



I love you, baby! Happy 5 years of blessed togetherness!!
