It was one of those days that you look at yourself in the mirror and think "This was not my day!" That seems to happen a lot in high school! You have a lot of those awkward moments! I felt funky and i looked even funkier! I was wearing this awful hat that I had thought was cool when I left the house that morning but hours later I realized it wasn't the business! My makeup had smeared from gym class and I looked down at this huge sticker that was covering a cheese stain (from my healthy hot cheetos and cheese lunch) that had spilled on my shirt! It was definitely an UGHHHH kind of day! I was sure glad it was over and as I started up my truck in the school parking lot -I glanced to my left and there he was... The cutie that I met last week in the gym! We got introduced by our mutual friend and he had seemed so shy! This was only the third time I saw him in the 2 years of going to the same high school. I guess we had different lunches and our classes were on totally different sides of the school.
He approached the passenger side of my truck with a sweet smile signaling me to roll down my window. Really!?! Of all days and outfits this is the day we're going to talk!
I nervously let him in. It turns out this shy guy was not so shy at all! Well not to me at least! We totally hit it off! It's so true that opposites attract because we couldn't be more different! And it all began in that little truck of mine...
We shared our first convo, our first kisses, our "I love you's", our first car accidents (yes Jack crashed into the back of my truck one day in our school parking lot -luckily there wasn't much damage, but it was an awkward conversation to have with my parents.) This little pickup truck became our family wagon, so it only made sense to include it in our 10 year anniversary photoshoot that we did last week with the awesome Alisha Marie Photography!
I cant believe it's been 10 whopping years since those two awkward kids fell in love and are
now married with two gorgeous boys! And we cant forget the new pup! Lol! I know once you get married your supposed to stop counting your first anniversary but I think it's a huge deal in this day n age to make it to ten years! I'm still in love with this kid more today than yesterday! He's still the ONE I love to be around, to annoy, snuggle up to, vent to, scratch his back, rub his feet, sing with, dance with, cry to, & laugh with! We are perfectly IMPERFECT and that's the way I like it! Im soooo enjoying living my life with him! Cheers boo boo to an awesome 10 years and here here to a GAGILLION more!
Special thanks to one of my favorite photographers Alisha owner of Alisha Marie Photography!!! We had such an awesome time with her and I couldn't be happier with our sneak peak of our shoot!

Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
