• 5 Years of Marriage

    July 12, 2013

    Five years ago today, I married my best friend.

    549 (640x425)

    550 (425x640)

    562 (426x640)

    And it’s been a wonderful and amazing adventure ever since!

    I honestly can’t imagine some of the best moments of my life without Mal by my side. He’s the greatest guy and, boy, do we have a lot of fun together! With that said, here are our (Mal helped me brainstorm) favorite moments from our first five years of marriage!

    Welcoming Murphy into the family.

    I can’t imagine our lives without this little furball!

    And, of course, CrossFit. We’ve had a ridiculous amount of fun WOD-ing together!

    The first five years of marriage have been a blast so far, and I can only imagine what the future holds for us!

    P.S. Here’s a recap of our previous anniversary celebrations. Mal and I had a good laugh about last year’s “celebration!” Haha!

    P.P.S. Here’s our engagement story in case you’ve never read it!

    Happy Anniversary to you and Mal! I’m so glad to have the chance to follow along on your journey. Someday, I hope to marry my best friend, as well, as I feel first and foremost a solid friendship is the basis for a healthy, long-lasting and fulfilling marriage.

    Happy Anniversary! I gotta say all the pics of Murphy are always adorable but that pic of him as a pup is too cute!

    I would sing my parent’s “Happy Anniversary” song, but it would be lost in translation, so I’ll just say it: HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Nothing is better than being married to your best friend.

    It’s amazing how fast time goes by! I have a wedding anniversary coming up soon–while marriage isn’t always easy, it gets better with time.
