The Best Five Years

This weekend marks the fifth year that Tim and I have been together total, and our first wedding anniversary. Below there is a picture for each year and a little bit about our story.

Tim and I met my freshman year of college and his junior year at NIU. My roommate briefly dated his roommate and that's how we met. It was only a few weeks into the school year when we met, and we have been together ever since. This was one of our first pictures taken together in November of 2006.

This was our second Christmas together and our first Christmas tree. Yes, we strung all of that popcorn one night! This picture was taken December of 2007.

This was taken at Tim's graduation in December of 2008. I was in the middle of my junior year here and Tim  was graduating. This was the last year I spent in the dorms before we moved in together. 

On July 4, 2009 Tim proposed in Wisconsin Dells, WI. A month later we moved into our first apartment together and I started my senior year of college, which included a semester of student teaching. This was one of our many engagement pictures taken by my cousin, Melissa, in September 2009.

On October 9, 2010 we got married at Hopkins Park. (You can read all about the day of here). We had a gorgeous, stress-free day, and we had so much fun! 

 Today we had some friends over to hang out and grill and they brought over this lovely, delicious cookie! (Thanks Kristen & Ryan!) It's hard to believe it's been an entire year already. People say that the first year of marriage is the hardest - if this was the hardest year of our marriage, I'm definitely a happy lady and looking forward to many more years! 


  1. Congratulations and Happy Anniversary!! :)

  2. Yay! Happy anniversary!! True love is so beautiful!
