10 Years...

Today is our 10 year anniversary, how can Kyle and I have been married for ten years already???

I remember that day so well, it was warm and sunny with some much needed sprinkles at just the right moment.  During the photos it was crazy sunny, hot and buggy.  Everyone kept having to pick bugs out of my huge dress, pretty hard to get them when they were stuck between the layers of tulle.

Before my dad walked me down the aisle it started to sprinkle, at first I was upset I was afraid it would start raining hard.  My dad just held my hand and told me it was ok, a little rain wouldn't hurt anyone and it was good luck.

Our limo broke down on the interstate on our way to the reception, what a funny picture to see a wedding party standing on the side of the interstate drinking champagne in the rain :)  My sister-in-law from California was the only one with an umbrella, thankfully she came to my rescue in the rain.

It was a beautiful day, we had such a blast with all of our family and friends.

In the past ten years we've bought a home, had our first dog Tybalt, had our beautiful daughter Bella, had our best friend live with us, one of my nephews live with us and now my father-in-law lives with us.

There have been obstacles I thought we would never be able to overcome, times when everything felt so broken we wondered how to put everything back together.  Through it all we've always come back together and helped each other pull through some of the toughest, most unexpected moments in life.

We may not be perfect, but we are the most imperfect version of us and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I can't wait to see what the next ten years bring us.  We are lucky to live the life we live surrounded by those we love and who love us.  I am so grateful for this life I've built with Kyle, together we have done some amazing things, the most amazing part of course is Bella.  

Here's to the next ten years!
