Eleven years together…

Today, June 24th 2011, Ryan and I celebrate our 11th anniversary. 

We walked down the aisle at 19 and 21.  We had great dreams and plans for our lives… We were young and in love and completely clueless…


Now we stand hand in hand at 30 and 32.  We’ve lived a lot of life in our 11 years together.  Our great dreams and plans didn’t work out as we had hoped but the reality is so much better… 

We are older and wiser… and hotter!  😀

Ryan & Courtney-24

We are not as young as we were back then but we are more in love. 

This man is my best friend, my confidant, he makes me laugh, he knows my heart…

We have our own language, we have a thousand inside jokes, we can have whole conversations with a look…

Our life together is a whirlwind of excitement and newness but with him by my side I feel like an Island in the storm…  Though life may rage around us we are ever steady ever solid…

“I know what it is to live entirely for and with what I love best on earth.  I hold myself supremely blessed, blessed beyond what language can express; because I am my husband’s life as fully as he is mine.  No woman was ever nearer to her mate than I am; ever more absolutely bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh.”

Ryan & Courtney-44

If 11 years can be like this I CAN NOT WAIT for the rest of our lives together…

Nice to meet you, too!  Thanks for stopping by.  Congratulations and blessings on your anniversary.  I trad a few entries back and it seems as if life will change for you, and your little family very soon.  Prayers for Ryan as he heads off and for you and your little one as you start a season of separation.  PS… loved the hat!
