10 Years

Today is our 10th anniversary! It may be cliche, but I am married to my best friend and the love of my life. Although it has been ten years, (I barely recognize Kenny in this picture without his goatee - and we won't EVEN talk about me) I still remember being the girl in the picture. Excited about our new life together, crazy in love, and thinking 10 years was so far away and I would be so old by then. :) We have had a great first 10 years, sprinkled with trials, but many more blessings!! I can't even believe how much life has changed in 10 years and how much I truly love him more every day! I wouldn't want to be on this journey with anyone else!

I WAS THERE!!

You were BEAUTIFUL (and STILL ARE!)

I remember watching you say your vows... I am pretty sure I teared up a little :)

As for my ol' youth pastor, well- it has taken ME time to get used to seeing him WITH the goatee- because, until we all found each other back on Hilton Head , I had pretty much pictured you two in my memories the way you appear in this picture :)

Happy 10 years... you two are a special couple and have been blessed with a beautiful family.

p.s. To this day, your reception was the classiest, most beautiful arrangement I have seen/been invited too

You guys look adorable!!!! What a beautiful picture! I wish I was there but sad to say I didn't know who you were then. I think we met a few months later.
You guys are a wonderful, happy couple. It's obvious how much in love you two are! Happy Anniversary!

Thank you!

Kelly - you didn't mention that my reception was also (probably) the only one that you were rudely told not to eat anything. Do you remember that? I remember Ben telling us that the wedding director told him he wasn't allowed to eat anything (since we weren't done with the receiving line) so he stuffed some food in his pockets before you guys left - I was mortified that she had done that. :)

Becky - actually we didn't meet you for another year! So just think, we're celebrating our 9th year friendship anniversary. I do believe I deserve a present! :)

What do ya think the pad of paper with the fake flower was for? I meant to give you a "Happy 9th Year of Friendship card" but the store had just sold their last one. :o)

DeAnna said...

So true, I guess I owe you a gift then. :)

Becky said...

True. my address is....DOE! almost forgot where I was for a second there.

Wow, what a beautiful picture!!! Congratulations on 10 years. It is so wonderful that you are so happy together and still so in love. I know a lot of people who don't have that kind of marriage. It must be so wonderful to be married to your best friend. Mr. Right and me want to be just like you when we finally find each other. ;)

Well, what a surprise. My sister, Rebecca, snooping around on us. I think she's hinting for a bff necklace, Deanna.

How beautiful you both were on your wedding day! Happy 10th Year Anniversary to you both!

We celebrated our 3 Year Anniversary this past May. We were married in Ireland, so there are lots of good memories of that day! :)

By the way, Thanks for your comment on my I’m taking a vacation but my blog is not post. I'm sure I'll have lots of pics/videos to share when I return. :)

Happy Anniversary Guys!! It doesn't seem like it has been 10 years. Like I said...Time Flies!!

kelly said...

Oh Yeah- I do remember that, now that you mention it-- I think Ben stuffing it in his pockets made it more memorable than it would have been otherwise... I think most people kind of agreed that it was right to wait on the newlyweds, regardless of how the coordinator came across...
The funniest memory I have about that trip is the Cheez In A Can Incident... perhaps it is better recounted in an email, as it could get lengthy :) Have fun going to Chatanooga-- they have a great aquarium there!

I'll go work on that Cheez Email now....
