5 Years Ago...


We eloped. And went to New Zealand and Australia for three weeks. Then we came home and held a backyard reception replete with hay bales, watermelon and homemade cupcakes. We served BBQ on china. The day after, I rinsed out and recycled every single one of those red plastic beer cups (yuck), which held Shiner Bock Beer from a keg ordered from Texas.
It seemed like such a simple time.
It was.
Before miscarriages and infertility, then a baby, then another on the way and crashing into bed at 8:00 in the evening because you are so sick with nausea.
From where I sit today, five years seems almost like a lifetime ago. A different life entirely.
But with one constant. Cowboy.

Sounds like a lovely way to celebrate getting married. And you two are a lovely couple. I hope, hope, hope you are feeling better soon..

Yes! It is so nice to see you.

Your wedding sounds lovely. Now that I'm older that is more of what we would have wanted. Although we did have a good day. Ah, 3 weeks in Australia and New Z -- some day.

The birthing of a family can drastically change a marriage, in your case, certainly for the better. hang in there and feel better soon.

On the 8th of April? That's our anniversary too (Just celebrated 17 years- no kidding! But sshhhh, I don't usually say that out loud, it ages me- I'm way too young! :-)
Congratulations. The wedding day sounded perfect. You both seem so well suited.
Also huge congrats on the pregnancy, I know you're finding it tough and I'm sure it's really hard right now but it'll all work out. Missy will get a sibling. Bigger picture and everything- easy to say, I know.

Look after yourself xx
