If 'love at first sight' only happens in fairy tales, then I must have lived my own fairy tale.

Nine years ago, I met a dashing small town boy in Kansas. Right at the very front door when I first saw him, I just somehow knew he's gotta be THE one. And I didn't have to wait too long to know that he too felt the same.

Several minutes later when our gaze crossed, I smiled him a big smile, then shyly lowered my gaze. When I looked up to meet his gaze again, he was still smiling back. It seemed like the world stopped for five minutes right at that very moment and no one else mattered.

Fast forward nine years and we're now celebrating this week our 7th year anniversary!

Nine years together and 7 years married but still as silly as two lovebirds can be! We still AIM each other sweet nothings even when we're next to each other! We still hold hands with the left thumb over the right declaring that it means "heart over mind"! We still give each other little nose kisses and reply back "I love you" when the other says "thank you".

To my dearest, darlingest Hon, I love you so dearly!
Thank you for our 7 years together.
They are the best 7 years of my life and looking forward to 70 more!!


Special thanks to our friend Faye and her hubby Chris for all these photos! Faye's not only a very talented budding photographer but also a very hardworking personal shopper!

Thanks Faye, thanks Chris!!

  16. Congrats! THat's wonderful. Lovely shots, too!

  17. Thank you all for the well wishes!!

    @Martina - wool is the traditional gift that must be given when celebrating 7th year. We don't always follow it but just a cute idea! ;)

  18. Happy Anniversary you two!!! This year (in Jan) was our 7th as well :) These photos are amazing. I love the way you two gaze at each other - there's so much love and happiness there. I wish everyone I know could have that.
    We've never followed the wedding anniversary gifts but I recently heard of a couple who did and they had such fun ideas...made we want to get all traditional ;)

    LOL, S takes Tums...does that work as well as Pepto? And you're right...I'm not the quiet type at all among friends...more when I'm among strangers or just feel uncomfortable. But stick me with a group I know and I get pretty chatty and say things I probably shouldn't...you may think my tall glass of water is really vodka. But I don't drink so of course it's just natural drunken like behaviour :)

    Happy, happy anniversary you guys! Wishing you the very best this life has to offer!

  19. Hello Grace!
    You are such a sweetheart!
    Thanks for letting me know. Did you know that celebrating 7th years means here in Germany "copper wedding"? I have to be honest with you... I would prefer also the "wool wedding" sounds somehow sweeter and nicer to me than "copper" ;)

    Enjoy your day with your family, Grace!!!

  20. Happy Anniversary Ils and Ryan!:)

    More years to come!:)

    Till our next photo opps!:)

  21. ahw I'm reading your story with a smile on my face!
    Congrats ! You 2 look so perfect together.
    Beautiful pictures
    And thank for you sweet comment !

  22. Lovely pics! And I could load them quite fast actually. :D

  23. Lovely pictures!!
    You are a beautiful couple!!!

  24. You guys are so adorable! I love these pics they totally made me smile...Congrats, may you have a lifetime of happiness!!! I love it!

  25. You are such a beautiful couple. Congratulations!

  26. Grace, these pictures are so magical. They remind me of mine and Jon’s photo shoot over the summer. Congratulations to the both of you on 7 years of marriage! I’m so happy for you, Grace. I really enjoyed reading about when you two first met and it’s amazing how you knew right away that he was “the one.” The pictures are truly lovely! You guys look so happy together. I feel inspired and encourage after looking at these pictures. They’re really amazing. Thank you for sharing these pictures with all of us and I hope you two enjoy your anniversary celebration.

    Also, thank you for passing my message along to Kat. I really appreciate it. I think she made a wise decision to focus on her studies and take a break from blogging. She is truly missed though.

    Thank you for the tip to help seasickness. I’ll definitely look into getting some Bonine before I head out to sea again. If I go through with this sailing trip, I’ll need everything that will help remedy the sickness.

    Once it gets cooler, you should definitely rent Season 1 of Cashmere Mafia and Season 1 and 2 of Lipstick Jungle if you like shows like Sex and the City. There’s only a couple of seasons so it won’t take long to watch and there’s no pressure to follow the whole series since it got cancelled. I like these kind of shows cause it’s more mature and the fashion is a lot more high-end. As oppose to shows like OC and Gossip Girls.

    It’s Friday in Australia which is my day off. I’ve had a long and busy week so I might just stay home today and catch up on blogs. My internet has been really slow so it’s been hard for me to reply to comments. Also wanted to thank you for all your sweet comments, Grace. I hope your week ends well and enjoy the weekend.


  27. wow so sweet! You two are darling! Congrats on your fairytale!!

  28. Good morning, Grace!
    Did I mention before you are such a sweetheart!;)
    Kat must be the luckiest girl because of knowing you as a friend
    in the same city!
    She was so sweet and sent me a post. Please give her a little hug
    from me and wish her all the best and gooood luck!!!

    Happy friday to you and your husband!!!!!

  29. awwwwwwwwwwww you guys are adorable!!! congrats to the both of you!! xo

  30. These are such gorgeous pictures! You too look perfect together!

  31. Lovely photos! especially the black and white ones :) you two look so very happy together! Happy Anniversary!!

  32. Hi Grace! :) Oh I know, never do manual labor again for them. It was horrendous.

    I believe it's going to be more than $100. It'll probably be closer to $300, which is unfortunate. My car got hit pretty bad and the cameras didn't detect anything. Thanks for the message though! It made me feel better <3

    As for your post, I'm so in awe! I'm such a commitment phob even though I'm only 21. I get all freaked out since the divorce rates are crazy now and day. It's lovely to know that there are people in strong, loving relationships. Your pictures are beautiful and I aspire to have a long lasting relationship like yours!


  33. Thank you all so much!! The hubby and I are smiling ear to ear reading all your lovely comments!! =)

    @The Man Who Knew Too Much - glad to hear they loaded up fast!

  34. Congratulations! You look so happy and cute!!
