Foto Friday- 6 Years of BLISS

On August 2nd 2003 I Married my best friend. Our daily lives have changed over the years, through everything one constant has remained, our complete love, devotion and respect. I am not exaggerating when I say I live in Marriage lala land. 6 years have flown by, the next 60++ I am sure will breeze by.

We were married at the Point Defiance Rose Garden in Tacoma near the Point Defiance Zoo. August is a BEAUTIFUL time to visit with gardens, the flowers are AMAZING. People celebrate birthdays every year, with cakes and candles. We celebrate our Wedding Anniversary by going back to where our marriage began and taking photos. I LOVE LOVE that we have kept this tradition, the album that houses the pictures makes me smile.

Below is our journey over the past 6 years...proof that I am not always sweaty and wearing spandex. (Back to running posts soon, hope you enjoy the little departure from the norm)



Baby Blaine in the Belly

I had a hard time losing the baby weight after Blaine.
Muscle man was much smaller in those days
My friend Sarah took pictures so we did not have to use the self-timer

This is one of my all-time favorite pictures.
Baby Easton little bump
I had just run my first 5K and hubby was getting into weight training.

This was last year... Sunday we will go take the 2009 photos. I can hardly wait..
Guess what??? WONDERFUL Giveaway starting soon....check back :)

Happy anniversary to you and Muscle Man! I LOVE the pictures! What a great idea. It's fun to see the pictures progress from just the two of you, you pregnant, and then with the boys.

Have fun going back for this year's photos!
