Zero! We were babes. Evening before our wedding. This picture is making me sentimental. Wow. About to embark on our life’s journey. Wow. Nineteen and twenty.

One year. I remember being sad that I could no longer truly claim the title ‘newly wed’. If I recall correctly, we spent our day out at the lake then came into Bonefish for dinner. Lots of stuff happened that year. I remember being grateful for Wesley. He was quite the guy. (still is).Two years. We went up to D.C. and took a little evening cruise around the harbor. Beautiful evening. I can’t remember a specific bullet point about this year. I started my blog two months later. So here’s to remembering future years.

Three years. Definitely settled in. A little bit older. Perhaps a wee bit wiser? We spent the week with Wes’ family in North Carolina. Very relaxing day together. I wrote a nice piece about the week here. Chuckle.Four years. Gladys had been with family for nine months. I was still, er, slender. I posted this on our anniversary. I must have been feeling poetic. I cooked us a nice dinner and we ate outside on our happy patio. Then we got in the s2000 and drove up to the mountains, hiked to a little outcropping, laid down on the rocks and star gazed.

Five years. No longer slender. My heart is full. Lol. So is my waist. But really. I am overcome with thankfulness and joy when I consider the past five years I’ve had with Wes. I pray for many more. We will be spending this particular anniversary at the hospital taking birthing classes. Woot. Wish us luck.

Much love to you and yours.

About A Story of Us

My grandparents 57th wedding anniversary and my first wedding anniversary motivated to journal the adventures life brought our way . I hope to amuse the friends and family I have all over the country and, when I am my grandmothers age, look back at what I have written and chuckle. It's been four years since I began and the snickers I bring myself as I look back propel me to write on. Cheers to the future and happy memories of the past.

    Looking at those first couple of pictures I cannot believe your dad let you get married so young, but I’m thankful for the results. You guys do well together. Love you much.
