2 Year Anniversary

posted on: Monday, September 12, 2011


Two years ago today, surrounded by towering trees and friends, I started a life with THE most amazing, loyal, romantic, sweet and handsome man alive. We celebrated our anniversary this year with a couple's massage that was AMAZING and then a nice, fancy dinner. We finished the night with frozen yogurt and a relaxing stroll around Charlotte, while we reminisced about our love story and our dreams for the future. It felt SO wonderful to be able to be my crazy self, acting silly and twirling around on fountain ledges, trying to catch Samuel's eye in that flirty way. Oh how I enjoyed every moment of our anniversary celebration date! (Last year, I felt like I was a walking piece of tenderized meat, still recovering from Káel's birth.) What a difference a year makes!

I love you Samuel Gatlyn, you are my dream love.

  3. You two are one of the most vibrant couples I've ever seen. Your wedding was beautiful and amazing. My three year old daughter asked if she could have a wedding like this and wear a white princess dress like yours. :)

  16. As I was reading your blogs it seems like you and your family are pretty lad back. I think that is great. I was wondering if you have ever heard of a company called SallyeAnder Soaps. They make an all natural handmade soap that does not include chemicals or toxins making it safe for babies. And with a new born in your family that is important. My wife and I have been using their soaps for almost 3 years now after our neighbor recommended their soaps to us. Here is their website if you wanted to check them out. www.sallyeander.com. Their Calendula & Chamomile Shampoo Bar is amazing especially for craddle cap with babies.

  20. oh man, i remember watching this (over and over) shortly after I got engaged and dreaming of having a wedding like yours. That's been two years ago! woah. I will also admit that I watched every other video on the youtube channel, might I add SWEETEST proposal ever! :)

    We washed each others feet in our wedding because i saw it in yours and loved the meaning behind it. Our wedding video is almost done and it is killing me that I can't watch it yet.

    Congratulations to such a beautiful couple!

  22. that was simply fantabulous! :} is the foot washing in reference to jesus washing his disciples feet (showing preference)? i know some people do that for different symbolism, but i would like to know what yalls was...

  23. oh my goodness you guys...thank you for expressing how much you enjoyed this. :) really! <3

    laura....yeah, that is once of the main reasons we did it...showing that we selflessly adore the other and put aside dignity to do so if needed. :) it was one of my favorite parts of our ceremony.
