5 years ago....
Today is our 5 year anniversary. It was the best day of my life when I stood and said my vows to my love Ryan. 5 years have quickly slipped by and now we are in an entirely different spot, a life as parents, a life as a family.
Ryan and I were watching our wedding video last night and today, and we said how we both find it hard to imagine our lives without Lyla in them. We did live 4 and a half wonderful years without her, with many travels and adventures, but the adventure of being a parent and sharing that with Ryan is so much more meaningful and continues to bring us daily joy.
Check out my sister Pam's blog for some more pics of our wedding. Thanks Pam for that beautiful tribute. You are the best sister ever!
Ryan and I decided not to exchange gifts, and Ryan did not do so and gave me a really cool gift. It is a picture frame with 5 different photos in it, and Ryan put a photo from each anniversary. It is really neat to look back upon the years.
He also gave me some beautiful "passion roses". We came downstairs today and I could smell their beautiful fragrance, I am looking forward seeing them bloom. Lyla likes to look at them as well, we will all enjoy them.
Happy 5 year anniversary Ry! You continue to make my life complete and I am so happy to be walking down this path of life together.
