Here's to 4 Years.... and Many More to Come

Today is the anniversary of my first date with JD.  We cherish this anniversary more than our wedding anniversary, because we feel this was when our life together truly began.  It's crazy to look back at how far we've come in our 4 years together.

We met and fell in love (here is one of the first pics we ever took together)

JD ended active duty with the USMC....

... and moved home with Harrier

He pushed me to try new things like camping

Then proposed on top of a mountain

We had a small, intimate wedding on the beach

Then bought our first home

We adopted a big, goofy companion for Harrier named Boyd

 Then invited our friends and family to a larger wedding celebration

 We found an injured, homeless puppy, named her Sadie, and added her to our bunch

We survived his journey through the police academy, and I proudly pinned his badge on when he was sworn in

 With so many great things to celebrate already, who knows what the next year will bring!


  1. I just noticed for the first time that in your engagement photo, Harrier is laying on the ground, yawning. Hilarious.

    And happy date-iversary.

  2. Of course JD insisted it was super important Harrier was there to share the moment. As you can see, Harrier didn't seem to care one way or another.
