Six Years

Today I celebrate six years being married to Most Wonderful Man in the World.  I have really enjoyed peeks into the lives of so many other bloggers I follow, so I thought I would share this little bit about me and my family.  I hope you enjoy!

I appreciate Jon so much for believing in me and for always being understanding, caring and loving.  He encourages me to go after my dreams and to not worry so much about unnecessary things or others when I sometimes do.  He shows me proper perspective when I need it.  He helps me realize my gifts and talents when I sometimes doubt.  There are so many reasons I am so grateful for this man.  I am blessed and lucky beyond measure.  

I hope you enjoy this little peak at the man behind all the awesome pictures on the Queen City Style.

Where it all started.  We met seeing The Samples in concert. Me, Sean Kelly and Jon.  Pretty funny.

First year of dating; cheering the Tar Heels on to victory at the Continental Tire Bowl.

Year two of dating.  Lots of fun times spent on boats...

He popped the question just a little over a year and a half into it.  I was in so much shock I could not enter the room.  This was taken at a wedding shower.  So much fun with great friends.


Thanks so much to our parents, friends and family.  I could not have asked for a more fun weekend.  For the sake of photos, my mother smartly removed cocktails from both of our hands as we exited the reception.  I grabbed two much needed bottles of water on the way out the door!

Here's a picture from our honeymoon tour of the French Polynesia, including my first time Scuba diving.  The instructor gave a 10 minute tutorial, pushed us overboard and instructed us to wave underwater if we needed anything.  Umm... okay?!

First year of marriage; I was a shocked but thrilled 11 weeks pregnant in this photo. 

And in this one.... with our sweet Macy girl.

Second year of marriage, along comes Precious Peanut #1.

Hank meets Rameses at his first Carolina football game!

A little bit of fooling around is always fun...

Year three.  I won't share all the details of this tough couple of months, but most wonderful man in the world swooped me up off my feet with a surprise 33rd birthday party at our house.  Here we are at one of our favorite wine bars while a house full of friends and family were getting ready to shout 'Surprise!'  Such a Sweet Pea!!

Year four; headed to the hospital to deliver Precious Peanut #2...

The two Peanuts meet!

Year five... 

A couple of weeks ago I very well may have run the race of my career, and there he was at the finish line with our two Peanuts.  My thoughts were consumed with so much joy from the hard work paying off, and all I could do was hug this man and feel so grateful for him always supporting me.  I wouldn't want to do any of this thing called life without you, honey!  Happy Anniversary.  I love you!

And I thank all of you...

So grateful for each and every one of you joining me here at the Queen City Style!
