12 Years of Us!

Today, we celebrate both Father's Day and our 12 year wedding anniversary!  We will be traveling to beautiful Asheville, NC where we will visit the beautiful Biltmore Estate.  I have wanted to visit this place for years, and Eddie's teacher's academy conference this week gave us the perfect excuse.  Plus, fathers get in free for Father's Day, and kids get in free all summer.  It really helped seal the deal that I only had to pay for my ticket.  We plan to enjoy making more wonderful memories together in our beautiful love story.  After all....

Here is a look at the 12 years of us:

There is a serious lack of pictures of us from 2005.  I'm not sure what happened.  I do remember that my sweet husband was playing with our first digital camera shortly after Christmas of 2005 and deleted all the pictures off of it "by accident" before I could download them to the computer.  Not such a great memory but a memory nonetheless!

Thank you for sharing this wonderful journey of life with me, Eddie!  I love you more today than ever.  In just 13 more years, we will celebrate our silver 25th.  As fast as these last 12 years have gone, I know the next 12 or 13 will fly by!  I don't want to miss a thing!


  1. Happy Anniversary :) You both look so happy together....something beyond can just tell you all are meant to be together.

  2. Happy Anniversary to you both. I loved looking at all your pictures over the years. We love the Biltmore, hope you enjoyed your day.

  3. Happy Anniversary! You all are such a sweet couple.

  4. Happy Belated Anniversary!!! I can't believe how young you guys were when you got together :) And I can't wait to hear about the Biltmore.

  5. What a fun look back on your lives together. Isn't it funny to think about how much has changed just in terms of documenting and picture taking in the last 10 to 15 years. I so wish I had blog posts from college and our early years of being married. And digital pictures from those times too!

    I saw that you just posted about your trip to the Biltmore Estate. I've been there! I'm interested to get to your post so I can see how much of it I remember.


Leave some love! Your comments make me happy!
