Six years ago today, I woke up in Florida and took a walk on the beach with Jon.

Then I put on a pretty dress


and the tallest shoes I have ever worn


and waited for the best day of my life to happen.


It was, in my most poetic words, a freaking awesome day.

Surrounded by family and friends as we made a lifelong commitment to one another.


Little did I know

the first anniversary would be Expecting A Baby anniversary.
the second anniversary would be Five Month Old Twins anniversary.
the sixth anniversary would be Dream House anniversary.


But if we
lost the dream house,
lost the dream city,
lost the good careers,
lost the dream life,

I would still have everything I need right here with my best friend.


Happy anniversary Jon.

(I'm not sure how we're going to top Dream House anniversary but I'm sure we will.)

Happy, Happy Anniversary!

It still makes me laugh that we got married in the same general area, barely one week apart from one another. Six years ago today, I think we had just started our honeymoon. :-)

I believe the old Beattle song, All You Need Is Love, is true! Happy 6th Anniversary with your beloved, Jon.
PS: Loved the surprise of your high shoes!

Love this post Laura. Happy Anniversary to you both! The photos are beautiful, but your journey together is even better.

Happy Anniversary! Love your shoes :)

As luminous as you look waiting in anticipation it pales in comparison to what you guys have done together over the last six years.

Wishing you 6 x many, many more years

I hope you had a great weekend. BTW, great movie choice.

Happy Anniversary! Really, nice post and your wedding pictures are GORGEOUS!

Irene said...

Happy anniversary! Brings tears to my eyes.

I'd have to guess that your Dream House anniversary is better than your 5-month Twins anniversary, knowing what I know now. :)
