Think Back Thursday – My Wedding

So Debbie over at Debbies Digest does a photo meme of Think Back Thursday. So, I thought I would give it a try. Each week I will think back to an event that took place in my life before I began blogging. This will help give you a little incite into who I am as a person. So I thought it would be appropriate to begin with my wedding day, April 27th 2007. I can’t believe we have already been married for 5 1/5 years. Time goes by so fast. Our wedding day was truly a dream come true. It was my perfect day.

Our Wedding Day in Pictures:

Steve looking a little nervous, before the ceremony.

My beautiful mom.

My sister, my maid-of-honor. It is wonderful knowing she is always there for me.

My dad and me about to walk down the aisle and see Steve for the first time.

I love this picture. It is Steve, the first moment he saw me.

My mom and dad, aren’t they cute?


My sister and brother

Steve and his sister

The Girls

I just love this picture of our flowers.

This ice sculpture was at the reception and it was so beautiful.

Some of the beautiful flowers from the day.

Entering the reception as Mr. and Mrs.

This was when my dad was giving his speech and tell Steve that I am now officially on his bills.

This picture brings back so many wonderful memories. We have always loved to laugh together.

Our first dance as husband and wife.

During my brother’s speech he said that I was always might to be a wife. He said I was “wifey”.

My dad is truly the most amazing father any girl could ever ask for. He would do anything for his children, including Steve. I am so lucky to not only have him as my dad, but Steve is following in his footsteps and is am amazing father to his girls. I am so blessed to have these two men in my live.

My sister-in-law and my sister!

I thought I would end with this picture because it is so special to me. We didn’t know they we taking our picture and he was just kissing me on my forehead. There is just something so loving about a kiss on your forehead. 🙂

Wow, I haven’t looked at these pictures in such a long time. They bring back such wonderful memories. We were so young and in love. The best part is I fall in love with him more everyday. I can’t believe 5 1/5 years later we have two beautiful girls and have built this amazing life together. I couldn’t have dreamed of a more wonderful life. I am truly blessed.

Boy have I changed

Yes, as you can see in the pictures I was a blonde and I was defiantly heavier than I am now. I was actually my heaviest ever. Most women are their thinnest when they get married. But, when I met Steve in 2005 I had just gotten over an eating disorder, which we will talk about more as time goes on. I was just thankful to be eating again. I was living life and really didn’t know how to take care of myself. So, I was unhealthy and simply didn’t know how to be healthy. As time went on I just settled on being a little heavier then I would have liked to be, but I didn’t love my body.

Just over a year after we got married I got pregnant with our first child and began learning how to be healthy. I wanted to treat my body and baby the right way. That was when my journey began to living a healthy, happy life.

Wow, this post got a lot more serious then I expected it to, but those are all topics that I do want to share with you as we continue on this path together. I will share my struggles and what helped me become the healthy, happy person I am today. I have always wanted to help others. So hopefully I am on the right path.

Have a wonderful day. Enjoy your life and be thankful for what you have!

    Hello Renee,
    It is good to meet you.
    I am happy you found my blog and my meme.
    You have lovely wedding pictures and it looks like you got a good one when God chose your hubby for you.

    I hope you continue to participate in my meme.

    Just so you know I have a weekly theme. Most of us are now following the theme. I used to do it by another name and everyone just posted want they wanted. When I changed the name I added the weekly theme. Most of my participants, and I don’t have a lot linking up each week, like the theme, because it helps them choose what to post about. Most of them will be posting with the theme for the week.

    It is fine with me if you just do your own topic and link up, I just wanted you to know.

    I try and post the themes ahead of time. I have all of November’s themes posted and will post the themes for Dec. on the 21st or 28th when I do my reminder posts. Here is the list of themes in case you want to work on doing one or more of them with us.

    Future Themes:
    11/15 Entry/Doorway/Enter
    11/22 Thanksgiving
    previous years or preparations for this year
    11/29 You/Yourself/Self-Portrait
    a photo of you, taken by you or by someone else
    a recent photo or one from days gone by
