6 Year Anniversary

Today is Mr. J's and my 6 year wedding anniversary (and our 13.5 year + 2 days dating anniversary).  We met early in my freshman year of college and I feel so fortunate to have met my best friend and soul mate at such a young age.  We essentially grew up together and have been each other's biggest cheerleaders and confidants as we transitioned from childhood to adulthood.  Not everyone understood our devotion when we were so young, especially when we were long distance.  During medical school, he would drive roughly 300 miles every other weekend to see me and patiently sit in a coffee shop with me while I studied.  Now if that isn't love, then I don't know what is.  We've been long distance on and off for far too long and I cannot wait for it to end once and for all this summer.

Mr. J is fiercely private and was pretty adamant about not appearing on the blog.  The original version of this post included some of my favorite shots by the lovely and super-talented Vero for our 5 year anniversary shoot last year.  Unfortunately, Mr. J vetoed every picture except for this one.  Aside from this, he has been amazingly supportive throughout my long medical training and with the start of this blog.  With his love, I feel invincible.

Happy 6 year anniversary Mr. J!

Today is also Mother's Day so don't forget to shower your mommas with lots and lots of love!


  1. Happy anniversary! My guy is super private, too, and doesn't want any photos of himself on the internet, not even on personal Facebook accounts. Kudos to both of you for making the long distance relationship work for so long!

    Your mom is so cute!
