I’m Not Engaged {but I’m still in love}

5+ years ago, Jonathan asked me to marry him. I said “yes, please!” {or something like that} and the happy occasion took place several months later.

Between that time, my family had some pictures taken. Jonathan was there and so we got some “couple shots” done at the same time. I found one of our engagement pics several days ago and was howling with laughter. I’m kind of embarrassed to put it here on my blog. {but I will. at the end of this post. so it doesn’t shock you.}

Anyway, I have wanted to get some love-y pics done of Jonathan and I. Because we’re still in love even though we have 2 kids & have been married long enough to figure out neither of us is perfect. And love-y pics aren’t just for engaged people, right?

Without further ado…here are some of the shots:

If you follow me on facebook, you already saw this pic…but it’s worth re-posting in the event that you missed it:

And a couple other funny ones…

now for a little backstory behind some of the pics…

I’ve had a hard time picking out my fave pic. This might be it? But there are just so many that I love, so I’m not sure. For today, this is my favorite:

It sure beats our engagement pic, huh?

{okay, don’t scorn}

I know that’s quite a bit more personal of a post than usual, but…I just loved them so much I had to share. So, thanks. I’ll be back on Wednesday with a DIY Christmas gift idea!
