9 years ago...

Nine years ago today, I went to prom with my husband.  That sounded weird - he wasn't my husband at the time, just a guy I thought was cute.  He was a senior and I was a...freshman. Gasp! I know.  Believe me I've heard it over and over and Matt heard his fair share of, "What are you doing taking a freshman to prom, dude?!"  We ignored everyone (thankfully) and can now laugh about how long ago that seems.  

One year ago today, Matt asked me to marry him.  In honor of this day that we have celebrated every year since we first went to prom, I am going to take a little trip down memory lane featuring some of my favorite memories.  I hope you don't mind!

Matt -
The past 9 years have been such a blessing!  Although, not perfect - I wouldn't change a thing.  I hope you enjoyed this blast from the past photo collage as much as I enjoyed looking through each and every single photo album on my computer!
Cheers to the next 9 years being even better.

  12. what a sweet memory lane. :) you guys are darling together! i'm currently dating my high school crush; after five years of separation for college and coming back to the same city, we decided that our friendship was more than a foundation for something more. i can definitely relate! :) only, i rejected him for prom... but we're re-creating 'prom' this year! haha.
