Kevin and Amanda 10 Year Birthday Bash

This week is the 10 year anniversary of I can hardly believe it’s been ten years!! I feel so, so incredibly lucky that I’ve been able to share these photos, tutorials, travels, and all of my favorite things with you guys for the past 10 years. I absolutely love sharing this site with you — it is truly a dream come true. I cannot put into words how grateful I am for each and every one of you who stops by, and for all your sweet and encouraging comments over the years. You guys are the best.

Kevin and Amanda 10 Year Birthday BashKevin & Amanda, March 22, 2002

Kevin bought me the domain name for the one year anniversary of our first date, March 22, 2002. We were two months and nine days away from being married. I was already “blogging” at the time — even though back then we didn’t really officially have blogs as we know them today! But I still loved taking photos and posting them online, sharing a peek into our lives, what we were up to, and things I loved. Kevin has always had a talent for showing his affection through romantic, thoughtful gifts, and our own domain was so perfectly me. He surprised me that afternoon by asking if I’d ever thought about getting my own domain name for my site. My answer was of course yes!! He asked me what name I’d choose, and without hesitation I answered He sat down at the computer. Let’s pull it up to see if anyone’s taken it yet, he said. As he typed in the letters — — and the page slowly loaded, I could tell there was something already there.
