… it’s official. 

We have a walker! 

Henry now walks more than he scoots.  I am amazed by how fast he took off after he finally decided it was time.  He is the CUTEST little thing you’ve ever seen.  He’s still wearing 6-12 month clothes and is just a peanut — so when he starts walking, you really don’t expect it.  The “look what I can do!” expression on his face is absoluely priceless!  He knows he is BIG stuff!!  🙂 


Peter and I were married five years ago today (February 8th)


Ah, we look so young.  I can’t believe it’s only been five years!  It feels like an eternity since I walked down that aisle.  So much has changed in our lives since then.  We’ve changed. 

And yet on the other hand, it’s gone by so quickly… another blink of the eyes and we’ll be at ten years!

Many of you know our “story.”  We were childhood friends living across the road from each other and then fell in love in High School.  We’ve had some rocky seasons, but we’ve always known it was meant to be.  He is without a doubt my best friend in all the world.  I feel so fortunate to be married to him.  The guy is smart, funny, adventurous, compassionate, loves the Lord, is as cute as heck and to top it off is a great dancer…


Wouldn’t you know, I couldn’t find ANY pictures of us together when we were in high school!  That would have been fun, but I’ll have to settle for a couple of honeymoon ones… (none of these photos were digital, so I had to scan them… the quality isn’t great — but you get the idea!)



We had a great anniversary today.  We finally got up to the mountain and spent the whole day boarding in epic powder!  Wahoo!!!!  (But THAT is a whole sweet post in itself!!!  🙂 )
