10 Years

Time is a crazy thing. As you get older it just seems like time goes insanely fast. I still can’t believe it’s already been 10 years.

On February 27, 2010, Glen and I got married. We worked hard to pay for our wedding, doing as many DIY things as we could. I remember hand making each wedding invitation myself, my mom and relatives helping us with flower arrangements and table decorations. My parents helped cook for our rehearsal dinner.

Our vision was that we had planned a ceremony outside at the golf club where we had the wedding, but the weather had other plans. Nonetheless, we got married inside, while it was pouring rain outside. The room was filled with our relatives who came from all over to be with us on our special day. It went by so fast and it was a lot of fun! I’m grateful to have beautiful photos and a video of our wedding to look back on.

Our world changed as we became parents. On April 11, 2011 we were blessed with a beautiful baby boy named Enrique. We felt so lucky. We went through a lot with him in that first year of his life. We were blessed again on April 15, 2014, when our Landon came into the world. Little did we know that these two boys would change our lives forever. They know how loved they are, as we never let them forget how beautiful and precious they are to us. Our children have truly shown us the beauty of our love together. We both love them so much and see us in them every day.

We’ve gone through ups and downs but got through many storms together. As I reflect on our relationship, we truly did grow together – we have been together since we were in our early 20s so we’ve been through a whole lot of changes and growth throughout our relationship. We traveled together, enjoyed many meals together (we love to eat), and went to see music together.

I can’t wait for the next chapter in our lives and many more years laughing and loving with each other and our beautiful boys. ❤
