when we were young...

in honor of our 11th wedding anniversary yesterday, i dug up a classic mark and emily dating picture. ready for this? 
look how young! i can't get over my round face or mark's super skinny face with much less hair than he has now. was that really ever us? those two kids were discussing marriage and their future happiness together. life was great. 

fast forward 11+ years...

the grown-up and very married mark and emily.
sorry about the glare. our photographer is nine years old.
these two, who still like to pretend they are kids, are in the midst of experiencing that happiness they discussed so long ago.
it hasn't always been as easy as we imagined. in fact, it's been downright difficult sometimes. but we're still here. together. much more in love than our young selves so long ago could've ever imagined.
life is still great. 
happy 11th anniversary to us!

I love seeing couples in their younger years. They always seem to be sitting on each other's laps or in the same chair.

Happy Anniversary to you two love-birds! :) We're so glad you met, married, had babies and now live in our neighborhood so we can pester you! ;)
