A Look Back at Three Years...

Tuesday, May 19, 2015


1,095 days.  Yep, it has been 1,095 days since I married the absolute love of my life.  I couldn't imagine my life without my best friend.  These last three years have brought so much joy in my life than I could have ever dreamed of.

I met Russell on his 19th birthday 11 years ago (May 29th will be 11 years).  We were just kids with our whole lives ahead of us.  Who would have ever thought that our crazy love story, our ups and downs, would put us here today in each others arms?  What started as teenage dating, turned into a strong friendship and then, we came back together to fall truly madly deeply in love years later.

Russell is the best friend I could ever have, the most adoring husband, and an amazing hands-on daddy.  Everything I ever dreamed I would find in a man, I found in him.  I. am. blessed.

I want to share with you, some of my favorite photos from engagement to now. Let's get this party started!  Oh, and if you want to see our wedding music video, check it out here: https://vimeo.com/44882863

And just like that, our family has grown!  I love looking back at the wonderful years we have had, and I get so excited when I imagine what the next 50+ will hold.

To Russell (if you are reading this...which you should since this is your wife's blog):
You are my everything.  My heart, my soul, my confidant.  You have made me the happiest wife/mommy in the world.  Thank you for making all of my dreams come true.  Happy Anniversary!

I promise to make tomorrow's blog post not-so sappy :)  If you want to view more of our wedding photos, you can visit this link: http://www.davidschwartzphotography.com/main.php#!/images/weddings/sheri-russell/1
