7 Years of Marriage



On this day 7 years ago, I nervously walked down the aisle to take my husband's hand in marriage.My life changed for the better when I married my high school sweetheart and best friend Justin. 

I seriously can't believe that we have been married for 7 years. Time really does fly when you're making memories and having fun. How did we go from two young teenagers who didn't have a clue to pushing 30 in a hurry? 
(Our first year together in 2004) 

We have made so many wonderful memories together, and we have had some bad times too. But there is no one else that I would rather be with than Justin to share the good and bad with.

Here are some fun facts and photos I want to share with you...

5 years of dating + 7 years of marriage = 12 years together

1 precious 2 year old little boy named Raylan who lights up our life



Through Sicknesses, Injuries and many heartbreaks, Justin has always been there to take care of me and hold my hand and I him as well. 

Through Job losses and Pay cuts, God has always been there to see us through. Times have been hard but we have lifted each other up.

We have took many trips together and made a lot of great memories together. Including 5 anniversary trips.

(Year 7 of Marriage Anniversary Trip)

We have had to skip a few anniversary trips due to work and having Raylan, but we have enjoyed the 5 that we have taken and pray that we get to take many more. Yes, Raylan has been on the last two with us, but hopefully we can go on our own when he gets a little older and I don't worry as much. 



Justin has had quite a few race cars and quite a few wins...What can I say, my husband loves to race and trade cars! Racing is what we do most of the time during warm weather.

 Here are some more of my favorite photos in no particular order.






Here is to 7 years of marriage and I pray that God blesses us with many more. I'm so thankful that God gave me you! I'm also thankful for the man, husband and father that you are. I love you Justin and I look forward to making many more memories with you! Happy Anniversary!

I have found the one whom my soul loves.  Song of Solomon 3:4
