I said Yes To The Dress, again.

Dear Diary,
On Monday 10/12, I slipped into my wedding dress.

Believe me, I was so elated the 'dress I said yes to' a decade ago still fit! And, I finally got use out of the fur stole we purchased as a back-up in case the weather on our October wedding day called for something extra. (It was 85 and sunny instead!) I dressed the kids into their Sunday best (M in an old flower girl dress and L in a coordinated shirt-and-pants outfit), and my husband donned his black suit.

We drove to a nearby apple orchard (with permission from the owner to have full access), found a row of trees that had erupted in fall color and commemorated 10 years of marriage with a photo shoot by the lovely Kimberly Halverson. (She used to be a flight attendant for the same airline Nick flies for. Her talent speaks for itself, and has also done freelance work for the business Nick co-owns. Check her out here!)

She has since released a preview of the shots she took, and my reaction transitioned from laughing-until-my-stomach-hurt to feeling my eyes well up with tears. Not only did she capture the hilarious essence of our two children (who stole the show and I wouldn't have it any other way), but also the representation of what 10 YEARS meant for Nick and I. My 22-year-old self had no idea where the most important walk of my life down the aisle to meet the man of my dreams would take me, but my 32-year-old self knows - college graduations, three states, three apartments, numerous job transitions, a fresh start, two kids, 1 mortgage, plenty of traveling, 8 cars and with a lifetime of memories to go - here we are. 

I wanted to reach through my screen and hug Kim, to claim her as a new bestie and beg her to pack me into her suitcase when she embarks on her next adventure to New Zealand for the selfish purpose of seeing life through her lens. She has frozen a collection of the most precious moments in our family's story, and for that, I am eternally grateful.

... And excited to take delivery of all of the images!
Here's to the next 10 years, and beyond.
