7 Years of Marriage... and a flashback to the early days

Matt and I got married seven years ago today. SEVEN years! That does not even seem possible. I mean we're not old enough to be married for that long, right?!

When I was nesting and organizing before Ryan was born, I found tons of pictures of the two of us from our early dating years. So today, instead of imparting wisdom from our seven years of marriage ;) or reminiscing on the memories we've shared throughout the years, I thought it would be fun to flash back to some of those early days of dating and laugh... because some of these pictures are hilarious.

The first meal we made, haha- I love this picture his mom snuck... if only I knew what was being said at the time

Braves game on July 4th after we ran the Peachtree Road Race

Prom junior year

Senior baccalaureate with one of our teachers who later married us. :)

date night- jean skirt and baggy jeans- man we looked good. Ha!

I have no idea what this is from, but please note- I'm wearing a choker.

First football game at Clemson- apparently pig tail french braids and an oversized t-shirt sounded like a good idea at the time.

For more pictures of our dating years (just in case these weren't enough for you), click here.

  1. I can relate to the choker picture! Gotta love how style has changed so much over the years!!
    Happy Anniversary! My husband and I just "celebrated" 8 weeks of marriage this weekend (haha)
    I'm sure the time will fly, and before we know it we will be saying where the heck did the time go!
    Enjoy your Anniversary :)

  2. And FYI, the infamous choker shot was taken during a visit to Muggie and Papa's farm!
