It was a birthday/anniversary combination.

I love you honey.


  1. Leslie

    Happy belated anniversary! I loved reading your timeline – can't believe it's been 8 years already! How fun that you got to go to the Big Island for just you two. And your prego tummy looks so cute! I never look half that good when I'm pregnant. Anyway, congrats on 8 years!

  2. Shay

    Happy Anniversary!! You survived the seven-year-itch so I guess it's cake from here. Cute baby bump

  3. The Bennetts

    Doesn't it feel good to count blessings? Thanks for letting us share in it with you – love you

    Oh and by the way, you two are amazing!

  4. Stephanie
