Memories

My daddy's toast was perfect for how I have been feeling lately. This whole year has seemed to resurface a lot of memories I have made over my short lifetime; maybe it is because I have so many great-grandparents getting older and I don't want to lose time with them.


When you are planning a wedding you remember all the 1st dates you had, all the little fights, and all the progress you have made along the way. For Rob and I this is why Fayetteville was so important to us. It is where our relationship started. We made the wedding about us, our family, and our friends. Those are the most important people to us.  On October 20th, we started a new stage of our relationship and made memories with everyone close to us. During our mini-moon and the weeks after there are lots memories. We want to share some that stand out the most.

AND LAST, BUT DEFINITELY NOT LEASE Robbie's dance to the Thriller! 


Remember to make make memories every day. On your worst days, these things are what will bring you up and make you smile and laugh.

Thank you everyone who has been supportive of Robbie and I during our relationship, wedding, and now our marriage. We cannot express how much y'all mean to us!
