Guess the dreary weather will act as the motivator I need to organize this house and US for our trip to Virginia Beach - we leave 1 week from tomorrow!
We are looooong over due for a trip alone together. We have NEVER been on one in the entire 7.4 years we've been together! We've had a weekend trip here or there with friends but that's it - we never even had a honeymoon thanks to Ben's new job (I'm not complaining believe me!) so we are really looking forward to getting away together to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary- which is 1 week from today!
In honor of our anniversary week I thought I would share some of our story through photos with you this week.
Friendship: 1997 - Well...for always
Really hard to see I know: Ben is on the far right in the 2nd row..I'm the head to the left of him with the bangs- this was at a party our freshman year in high school
Sophomore year homecoming - Ben in the couple on the left and me with my then boyfriend in the middle
Band camp our junior year in highschool - Megan, Ben, and Me
Another tricky one to see - Junior Year Homecoming I'm on the left in the front- Ben is the second on the left - both there with different dates than the year before ( :

The picture that inspired our engagement pictures
And there are so many more that I could show you but there's only so much time in the day!
We dated for 5 years before getting engaged - something I was convinced would NEVER happen but it finally did....
And I w as going to post those pictures today too but blogger is not cooperating so I'll have to save them for another day!
Stay tuned! For now I'm off to attempt productivity - happy weekend!
Much Love Always,
Mrs. Amber Lane
