five . . . in photos

"The power to love derives purely and solely from the knowledge that one is already loved." - in a sermon by Joel Walker (one of our pastors in Nashville at Midtown Fellowship)

I've tried a couple times to write something in relation to that statement, but I'll just let the sentence speak for itself and move on. =)

When planning our simple (but awesome) honeymoon, we thought to ourselves, "Maybe for our five year anniversary we'll do a fun trip." Here we are at five years! Hooray! And now we find ourselves saying, "Maybe for our ten year anniversary . . . " (or whenever the youngest little person in our lives isn't breastfeeding).

I love living life with you, Aaron! You are the best: husband, friend, father of my little ladies. Happy Anniversary! I wanted to put a video up of Lydia saying "five," but she wouldn't cooperate for the camera. I'll get it eventually.

Here's a little photo walk through the past five years. (Maybe if you're lucky, I'll hang out with the scanner someday for some photos from the five-and-a-half years we spent dating.)

(This photo journey has shown me that Aaron and I rarely/never take photos of just the two of us anymore, even on our anniversary. Also, there are a ton of photos of Aaron and child(ren), some of me and child(ren) but next to none of all of us. I will work on improving these gaps in my photo library from here on out.)


  1. So sweet. Happy Anniversary.

  2. Happy Anniversary! Five years have gone by so quickly and there have been wonderful blessings. (Lydia and Heidi are just two of them.)

  3. Happy Anniversary! :) Your wedding picture of you two laughing is due to my funny toast, i am 99.9% sure. Okay, that is all!
