Way Back When-esday- Anniversary Flashback...

As I mentioned yesterday, each year as we celebrate our wedding anniversary we go back to the place where our reception was held. We started a tradition of taking a picture in the same spot each year and already so much has changed.

2009- Celebrating our very first and reminiscing on how quickly year one had flown by...

2010- Celebrating year number two with a bun in the oven...

2011- That bun, no longer in the oven but instead, resting comfortably on Mom's hip.

(I also just realized that I must really like purple. Totally unplanned. Weird right?)

Once we get home we pop open a bottle of champagne and use our toasting flutes from our wedding day. Gizmo always seems to get in on the action and this year, we added our precious addition Cooper, joining in our toast with his bedtime bottle. 

I can't wait to look back on these pictures 10, 20, you get the point, years from now. God willing, our family will continue to grow and we will age gracefully. Who knows, maybe one day there will even be grandchildren standing in this picture with us. Crazy thought, huh?! 

Play along with Cheryl at Twinfatuation... it's so much fun to reminisce! 


  1. Oh man! So weird! Purple is a great color though! I love that you have the same tradition each anniversary. It will be so cool to look back through them all!

  2. I love the year by year shots and that you have this little tradition going on! Love the purple in each year, too! Haha! So funny how that happened! Can't wait to see what year 4 brings for your little family either!

  3. So pretty and so perfect in purple! Thank you so much for reminiscing along with Way Back When-esday!

  4. Thanks, Heather! Each year just keeps getting better and better. Here's to hoping that's the case with year #4!
