Has it really been a year?

One year ago today, my husband and I said, "I Do."  We had an amazing wedding, and relaxed in St. Thomas afterward.  It feels like it was just yesterday.  Had you asked me where I thought I would be in a year, you can bet my answer wouldn't be that we would be waiting on a date for iur daughter's heart surgery.  But the realty of it is, we are.  We've been together for eight and a half years, and this will definitely be the hardest thing we've ever been through.  But through it all, I couldn't ask for a better person by my side.  I know it will be the hardest day of our lives, but together - we'll get through it.  I'm really lucky to have such an amazing husband.  I'm so fortunate to be able to stay at home with Kennedy.  He makes that possible.

It's amazing how much has changed in just a year.  Even though things haven't been what we expected the last couple of months, we've already made some wonderful memories and traditions.  I absolutely cannott wait for more to come.

Three months after we met we took our first vacation - a cruise to the Bahamas! (2003)

And 6 1/2 years after we met, we were engaged. (Engagement Photos @ Honeymoon Island - 2009)

One year later we were married in Clearwater Beach, Florida (May 15, 2010)

One month after we got married I found out I was pregnant.  

One year after we were married, we celebrated our anniversary with our beautiful baby girl.

As usual, Marlon and I made the celebration last all weekend.  I couldn't have asked for anything better.  As always, I was completely spoiled.  But best of all, was all the great family time this weekend, and continuing to realize what an amazing husband and father Marlon is.  This video shows it all, and completely melts my heart.

Our first year as husband and wife was very exciting!  I wonder what the second year will hold?


  1. Happy Anniversary to you both. You are a beautiful family and yes you will support eachother through what is to come and you will both be amazing as you always are.
