Today is our 10 year wedding anniversary.  It's hard to believe that 10 years have gone by so quickly.  I remember during our first year of marriage the "growing" that happened between Andy and I.  Not only as young adults, but as a couple as well.  Andy and I got married when we were 21 years old, and a couple months after the big day we moved 500 miles away from our family and friends. Looking back, it was probably one of the best decisions we made.  At the time I remember thinking, we're going to be married for the rest of our lives? Are you kidding me?  I was ready to grow up, buy a house, have kids, build that white picket fence, yada yada yada.  Of course, that wasn't what happened.  We both worked full time, didn't love our jobs, worked too hard for too little, paid too much for an apartment, and bought a dog!  Sure, we bought a house less than a year later and well, another dog. The kids didn't come until later... 

It was almost 5 1/2 years of married life before our son Hudson was born.  This was a major milestone in our marriage.  The first time Andy changed Hudson's diaper, fed him, kissed him, swaddled him, made me fall in love with him all over again.  To see such a hard-headed "manly-man" be so proud of a pathetic little 5 pound peanut made my heart melt.  Almost 3 years later when our baby girl was born, I felt that the strings that tied our hearts together became stronger again. The birth of Hadley completed our family.

So, now here we are 10 years into our life together, I truly feel like we are moving forward in love, with faith, and our family complete.  I look forward to the years to come, and will hold on to the memories of our past.
