Still Head-Over-Heels

This weekend was an Erin and Jared kinda' weekend. We went to dinner and a movie Friday night and liked it so much we did it again on Saturday night! What?! One night was Chipotle (with a gift card) + the cheap dollar theater so don't worry, Sallie & Perkins approved of us treating ourselves to TWO date nights in one weekend. Life's been entirely too busy so it was nice to carve out the quality time for US and actually go do things together.

We were too busy having fun all weekend to take any photos, and I kinda' enjoyed it that way :) Sunday after church we definitely had more of a lazy-around kinda' day and I spent a ridiculous amount of time working on photobooks. I'm trying to organize/sort/delete photos from the computer as I go, to make things easier to find in the future so it's quite the project. It's easy to get sucked into the archives and waste a few hours at a time on it!

As I was sorting, I came across some pictures of Jared and I about a month after we'd gotten engaged.  It was early October, 2010. We'd set up a tripod in the yard and just had some fun taking pictures with all the freshly turned leaves and with our exploding happiness from the engagement. I look at these pictures and love that you can just see those cheesy grins of ours and see the happiness jumping out of the pictures. They make me smile to look back at them, remembering such a fun time in our lives- we had just started our wedding planning, we were thinking about honeymoon destinations and trying to decide where we wanted to live.

But more than that? They make me smile because I feel just as head-over-heels for that man as I did four years ago. Actually more, because our relationship grows month after month in ways I can't even explain. I don't always get mushy on this blog, but I'm just feeling extra thankful for our marriage lately. My life is complete because of this guy :) God has truly blessed our marriage and I know he'll continue to do that if we keep Him first.

Alright, alright. Enough of all this serious stuff. Let's wrap things up in true LFF fashion. A fun picture, of course. Because no photoshoot would be complete without a classic Erin/Jared picture. Have a great Monday!

  1. What a beautiful day, it's making me crave Fall! You two really do have happiness radiating out of you in these- and it is so wonderful that you are still feeling this happiness 4 years later! I love looking back on my relationship and realizing how much further we've come when it seems like nothing has changed, but really it's always changing!
    Happy Monday :)

  18. Girl. Purple is your color. And this totally brought me back to the time when Scott and I had just gotten engaged. That time where everything is so new and exciting and all of it is about to change for the better. It goes by so fast, but it was one of the most exciting times of my life. There was SO much to look forward to. Look at you guys now! Crazy how fast time flies. :)
