Second Anniversary and Lauren James Dress

Lauren James Dress

I know everyone says it but, time goes by so fast! It’ll be two years tomorrow that Ryan and I have been married and I can hardly believe it.

I know it might be a little strange to do anniversary photos every year (check out our pics from last year) but I love taking the time to get dressed up and commemorate our love. This year we went to a local amusement park on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. I am obsessed with this Lauren James dress the girls I met at TBSCON sent sent me to wear for it!

It has pockets and the most stunning bow on the back! Ryan was so impressed that we had a impromptu fancy dinner after this photo shoot at an amazing restaurant called Hearth 😉.

Although some consider it a big jump and tend to shy away, marriage for us has been so much fun. Of course we have our times when we bicker (like recently over my beloved teddy bear pjs) but I can’t image doing life any other way.

We love to play around, like the game in the photos below, and joke on each other. I would describe our relationship as light hearted and loving.

One thing I have really been working on lately though is building him up. He astonishes me all the time with all the he does. He is a lawyer, plays on the worship team at church and has the most intense hobbies (i.e. surfing and spearfishing)!

I don’t always tell him that and most days I am making a joke at his expense. He laughs and returns with a joke about me but I am making a goal out of year 3 to be more encouraging to him! We all need a pat on the back and I know when he encourages me, it makes my day.

He can definitely make me laugh like no other though.

    This post was so so sweet and so inspiring. We should all aim to encourage and admire the people that we love. Also, I noticed that your engagement ring and wedding ring are so similar to what I want in the future! Seriously, so gorgeous. And I love this dress.

    I love love love this! I love that you guys celebrate marriage (because it’s awesome!) and take anniversary photos every year. This is definitely something my husband and I will be doing – I already prepped him for it. We’re celebrating our first anniversary in December. I also love that you point out amidst the bickering, there are more fun times than not fun times. And it’s always good to notice where you can be more encouraging. My husband is SUCH an encourager, and I have to consciously make sure I encourage him because he’s a words of affirmation kinda guy.

    Happy Anniversary! You can tell that the two of you have so much fun together. I love that you have set a goal for yourself to work harder on building him up – I want to do the same for my sweet boyfriend, he does so much and works so hard and I don’t do nearly a good enough job of telling him that!

    xoxo, Paige
