I can’t believe this weekend is almost over! Yesterday we went to a little butterfly show at our local flower and tree nursery. Mark LOVED it. He kept saying “butterfly get back here!” when they flew away.

and today is Dale and I’s 6th wedding anniversary. It is hard to believe this was us…

It was an amazing day. All of our family was there, my dad walked me down the aisle and said the words he had spent almost a year rehearsing ” Her Mother and I Do.” My grandpa (who is strictly a jeans and t-shirt guy) looked so handsome in his suit. My mom, who had on a beautiful purple dress, sat in the front pew and choked back tears. I felt like a princess.

We have been though  a lot in 6 years. We have a few more wrinkles, put on a couple of pounds, and moved (twice!). We gained a dog ( A HUGE dog), lost Dale’s grandpa and made many new friends. We became parents. NICU parents. Parents of an amazing little boy. We have made tons of great decisions and a few bad. But one thing never changes, our love for eachother.

Here we are today…

June 6th- Jeremy Frye, a member of our church, lost his battle with cancer on June 10th of 2008. In his honor, his family and friends put on a fun fest to raise money for his foundation. I was a beautiful way to honor his memory. They raised over 6,000 dollars!
