It’s been 6 years!

Today is my 6 year Wedding Anniversary!

Ironically enough… as I write this it’s 11am, and that is the exact time our wedding started (so right about now I’m walking down the aisle to the most stunning man I have ever laid eyes on).

6 years… and it’s been the BEST 6 years of my life…

6 years… 4 different NYC apartments in that time… 3 different cars… 2, no 3 different hairstyles (and colors – I’m so not a looker as a chestnut brunette!)… a new home… the start of a business with my mother and sister!…

But most of all… 3 beautiful, happy and healthy boys!

I love you honey… Happy Anniversary and may there be tons and tons more!

(Kids are napping… off to make a beautiful lunch for my man!)

We loaded the boys in the car last night at 6pm…

Fed them…

Brought our DVD player…

All 3 of them were FANTASTIC for the 5 hour ride from our house to Langhorne, PA…

FANTASTIC through the rain storm last night in NYC.

FANTASTIC through the thunder and lightening in New Jersey.

FANTASTIC through the traffic.

We get to our hotel at 11pm last night – completely EXCITED for a day of Sesame Street Place once everyone wakes up!!

And so… we wake up this morning to rain! Rain. Rain. Rain.

And some thunder.

The boys are (thank goodnes!) a little to young to be BUMMED… but Matt and I are!! We were looking forward to a day at Sesame Street!

Oh well… we’re not going to risk a day with 3 boys in the rain… and thunder!

Now we’re about to check out of this hotel and head-on to Pittsburgh to visit the in-laws…

This first Throwback Thursday picture is from 1983, when we were vacationing on the Jersey Shore. Remember when you didn’t mind sitting IN the sand and being covered with it from head-to-toe? We were obviously still in that stage when this picture was taken!

This next photo is from 1985, and it was taken on our front porch. During the summer, sometimes we would eat breakfast on our front porch at our little “kids'” table! And yes, we were wearing matching outfits!

This last photo is from the 4th of July in 1999. At the time we were living in Bristol, RI, home to the longest continuously-running 4th of July Parade in the country! Bristol is the most patriotic little town, and if you’re ever in the area around the July 4th, you simply must go there for a fabulous experience!

We Throw It Back at Pinks & Blues every Thursday – a sort of
Pinks & Blues Girls: The Early Years photo book.

We post old pictures that make us laugh, reminisce, and – let’s face it – recall some questionable fashion choices!

Join in on the Throwback Thursday fun! And don’t forget to leave a comment so we can check out your Throwback Thursday photos on your site!
