7 years!

7 years ago today, my darling husband and I said "I do."
And without getting too sappy, or mushy on my blog, I thought I'd do a quick look back at the last 7 years in photos. (Totally stealing the idea from Jenni.)

2001--our wedding day




2002 Thanksgiving at the lake
(nice overalls!)


2003 Our Christmas card picture


2004 with our new puppy Bentley


2005 pregnant with Caroline and Meg's matron-of-honor


2006--at the beach with baby C (and SK on the way)


2007--on the farm


2008--at the beach (one of my favorites ever)


A couple of things I've noticed:
1. We don't take pictures by ourselves anymore
2. I REALLY need a new 'do'.
3. Even though our family has changed and grown, I love this man so much more now than in that first picture when I thought I loved him as much as I possibly could. We've been through a lot. That's no secret. But those trials have brought us closer together, and more reliant on our Lord that we ever were or would've been. I LOVE you Josh!

Ok, no fair that you look exactly the same beautimous you for that many years! :)

And you look absolutely GLOWING in the pic where you are pregnant with C. I am also amazed about how much C looked like SK as a baby! Crazy!
