Four Years of Marriage

Four years ago today Nick and I tied the knot. It’s hard to believe! I don’t think I can top last year’s post, but I do want to say that having a child has been absolutely wonderful for our marriage. If things were good before then they’re great now. I think parenting brings out the best in us. And it’s been so fun to watch Nick slip into his role as a father.┬áHere’s a very bad cell phone picture of us taken last year on our anniversary. This was two days before Jack was born!

And here we are a few weeks ago. Baby is now on the outside and I am distinctly less miserable.

I don’t think we’ll be doing anything in particular to celebrate. We’re a little partied out between spending last weekend in New Orleans and preparing for Jack’s birthday party on Saturday. But we’ll try hard to be extra sweet to each other and maybe one night next week we’ll get a babysitter and head out to dinner with just the two of us.

Also! Pictures of Cassie, Nic, and Olive!

Fingers crossed that they all get to go home soon! I can’t wait to give that sweet baby kisses once she’s strong enough to withstand my germs. Despite being five weeks early she is doing really well in the NICU.

Thanks for reading, y’all, and for putting up with what is turning out to be a slow week in terms of crafty and DIY projects. If Nick remembers to bring our extension cord home from his work today then I can hang my macrame plant hanger this evening and post about it tomorrow! These are the things that get me excited, haha.

  1. Happy Anniversary to you two. Happy birthday to Jack and welcome to the world and prayers for baby Olive and her parents.

  2. Happy Anniversary! My husband and I never do anything super special, but we always make sure to treat each other extra special so I think that counts.
    Can I just say that I, for one, am really happy that macrame seems to be making a comeback? A little too late. After years of enduring torture from my friends over the macrame owl wall hanging I thrifted, I finally got rid of it and decided that it was never going to be cool. Hmm. . . maybe after reading your post, I’ll figure out how to make my own.
