Looking Back

Maybe it's just Valentine's day making me all mushy, but last night I started going through old photos of me and Matt and just could not wipe a silly grin off of my face. No matter what's going on in life we've always managed to make life fun and interesting. We wanted to share with you guys a few of our favorite memories over the years. Starting from the first picture of course and working down.

1. Taking Matt to the orchestra for his 22nd birthday and sprinting through main street in Salt Lake and laughing as we were wolfing down rice crispy treats for dinner hoping we would make it to the show on time.
2. The night Matt told me he loved me. I'll never forget that night.
3. Same night, Matt loves to squish my face when we take pictures.
4. Walking around downtown Arvada during Christmas time looking at all the quaint little shops and lights.
5. Long boarding in our very favorite parking garage and of course war painting each others faces with dirt. so classy.
6. The month we got engaged. Oh we was gaga alright.
7. My first trip to Matt's home to meet his family. I fell in love with them right away.
8. Our vacation to Las Vegas when Matt had just started his brand new grown up job.
9. We love rock climbing!
10. Our first time in Hawaii, about to go out and try surfing for the first time.
11. The week after our honeymoon. We set up all of our furniture in our tiny little apartment and then carved our names in the kitchen table. It felt like home.
12. Our very first vacation together as a married couple.
13. We'd been engaged for two months. There was a huge snow storm so we went out and played in the snow piles in parking lots all night. My California boy froze his hiney off.
14. We'd just gotten engaged. It snowed and we went out and wrote "Just Married" on all of the parked cars on my street.

Ah swoon. Here's to tons more memories coming our way!


  1. Adorable! I love seeing people's old photos.

  5. you two are so cute! you always look so happy together :)

  6. Awww, you guys are so cute! :)


  7. Uhmm okay you guys are cute. And guess what? Today in SFL101 Kristi Garza talked about you. Your pics were in her slideshow :D haha

  8. So cute! Can you share your secret for losing so much weight? Girl, you are skinny now! Would love to know what you're doing. :)

  9. being the photo lover i am, i adored this post entirely. i may or may not be that girl who sits on facebook - no not to stalk others - but to stalk myself. i photo dive and play the "remember when" game. it's ten times less creepy than stalking others [which i must admit, i definitely do] and it's at least 10088830022284702 times more exciting than reading about the kid who just sat in class for 10 hours straight or the girl who says she's craving an adventure and ending it with the ever so cliff hanging punctuation mark... dot dot dot. and yes i did just log on to fb to steal fb statuses for this comment. ten creepy stalking points for me!

  10. Too cute! I love hearing about couple's memories. It's so sweet! Definitely something you can tell the grandkids!

    XOXO, Lindsey

  11. The smile on your faces...priceless. I wish you many happy years to come :)


  12. Awww those are some wonderful memories! It reminds me that I really should take more photos of my husband and I together. Hahaha. I took a lot more when we were dating, then the longer we dated, the less photos I took, and now that we're married, we hardly take random photos together! Hahaha. We love each more each year but I just forget to take nice photos!

    PS. What does long boarding mean? I'm assuming it is an Americanism.
