10th Anniversary

Friday is my 10th wedding anniversary! Insane that I've been married for 10 years.  How am I old enough to be married for 10 years? Crazy.

So...what are our big 10th anniversary plans?  Well, I will be flying across the country, leaving Brian with the kids for the weekend.  My best friend, Karen, is having a party to celebrate her marriage, baby, and the long awaited completion of her PhD. She has been a busy girl.

It is funny celebrating Karen's amazing year on our anniversary.  The 3 of us go way back.

At Karen's house before a school dance. I think this was 1992.

I can't believe I'm even sharing this picture.  It was 20 years ago.  I'm the one on the left with the RIDICULOUS hair.  Pretty cool we are all still together.  I'm sad that Brian won't be at the party.  It would be great for the 3 of us to celebrate together.  We have all done an awful lot since this picture was taken.  We have been separated by many miles and have gone years without talking. But when we got back together, it was like no time had past.  This is true for me and Karen as well as me and Brian.  They are two of the most important people in my life.  

Brian's 37th birthday party.

Here are some wedding pictures, because I got caught up looking at them this afternoon.

It was an amazing day. It has been an even more amazing 10 years.  


  1. Love all the pictures!! Enjoy your weekend away - then you get to enjoy a belated anniversary back here!! Best of both worlds :)

  2. Love the pics! Congrats on 10 years and here is to many more!

  3. Crap, Im crying.
    I remember B crying, we were drinking PBR in his mom's condo, watching a rerun of the wonder years where the older sister got married. You were sitting on B's lap and he got all teary - he said it was becuase he knew one day you'd be his wife. We were 18 or something.
    I also remember how well I played pool ;) the night the three of us got together in Baltimore after 5 or some such years of barely seeing each other. It was like a day hadn't gone by. I really love you both alot. And I really love that you still love each other so much after all these years, not just the 10 you've been married.
    I wish B could be here too on Saturday, I loved your wedding. Besides, I'm not sure he'll really believe I actually got married if he doesn't witness it! There's a lot of love in this message, but i guess that's just how we roll.

    1. Awesome memories!! Although I don't remember you being great at pool that night...
