five years ago...

i squeezed into this white dress with the help of my mom and sister...
and walked through this vineyard to meet up with my best friend

it was the easiest decision I had ever made

which is how i knew it was just right...because you see, decisions had never been easy for me

my dad walked me down the most beautiful aisle lined with candles and under gorgeous hanging chandeliers

we were surrounded by friends and family who supported us then and have supported us since

we said our vows, not really understanding yet for ourselves all that they would mean
our friends sang "In Christ Alone", a song i have come to love even more than i did that day

we kissed

then we had a party! what a fun party it was! 

we have been watching our wedding video over and over with the girls and my favorite part is seeing all of you who were there celebrating with us! 

family and friends

these are eric's grandparents. they turn 90 this year. they have been married for a really long time. they lasted the longest at the "married couple dance." I have a whole new appreciation for the winners of those dances now that I know the work that goes into a good marriage. 

these five little cuties are so grown up now. some said this is a foretelling of what is in store for eric...

how fun would that be?! 

this little man is almost 6!!!

so many many friends came from near and far


and so many cousins!

we danced the night away

our cake was delicious...cheesecake...yum

we ended the evening with a traditional apu alum dance to neil diamond's "Sweet Caroline". who can remember who started this tradition?
 i am continually amazed at how God has given me things that i didn't even know that i needed in a spouse. these last five years have included a couple of small moves and one big one. new careers, new friends, new little family members, two of our own beautiful children and....

ONE MORE ON THE WAY!!!! if you made it to the end of this post you get to hear our news. Baby #3 due Oct 30. We are thrilled and so thankful for all that God has blessed us with.
