Cheers to five years!

Today is our five year wedding anniversary. Five years, five pregnancies, three saint babies, three babies here on Earth, two JDs, two Georgia Bar memberships, one house, and one minivan later, here we are! That seems like a lot when I write it all out like that.

Scott and I met in a dorm room a couple weeks into our freshman year at UGA. He was brooding and watching the VMAs. A true Edward Cullen before there was Edward Cullen. My friend and I coaxed him and all his friends to go dancing downtown. We danced together, he got my number, called me the next day, and the rest is history. When we met, we were just teenagers, but he told me he was going to marry me. He is a man of his word. read more

Our little flower girls

My brother’s wedding was this weekend, and it was a destination wedding in the college town of Athens, Georgia.
My (now!) sister in law very sweetly asked if my two older girls would be flower girls, and of course I agreed. Ruth will be three in September and Rose will be two in October, so I was a tad bit anxious about how they would perform come the day of the wedding.
We traveled up to Athens on the 4th of July for the Rehearsal Dinner. When we had settled into our cute cottage on the grounds of the wedding venue and attended the Rehearsal Dinner, Ruthie promptly sat on a lit match and burned a hole in her dress. We like to start things off right. The rest of the Rehearsal Dinner was uneventful, other than the fact it was outdoors and the mosquitos ate poor little Ruth alive! read more
