5 years ago today, Stephen and I were married.  Here’s a few photos from September 16th, 2006.

I love this photo because we weren’t paying attention to anyone around.

Dan and Lily:

Lily was due in October of 2006, she decided to come in August.  She was still in the hospital when we got married and Dan stayed in Maryland with her.  I wanted to include them in our wedding album, so Lily and Dan got dressed up for photos at the hospital.

We had a great wedding day!  Happy Anniversary Stephen!  I love you.

Three years ago today, I had the honor of attending the wedding of Jeanne and Aaron.  The wedding was held in Dakar, Senegal in Africa.  Aaron and I have been friends since seventh or eighth grade, and  I was happy to act as an official witness for this very special occasion.  I met Jeanne for the first time just 2 days before the wedding.  She is amazing, and I knew right away that she was the one for Aaron.

Happy Anniversary Aaron and Jeanne!

I had many great experiences during my trip to Senegal.  It was certainly a once in a lifetime opportunity.  It’s not very often that one of your best friends gets married on another continent.

Congratulations on 3 great years!
