Who knew 12 years ago that one of my best friends would play match maker to set me up with her co-worker that I had lovingly nicknamed Justin Timberlake. She didn't care for my boyfriend at the time and apparently knew something I didn't - that JT was just what I needed. A few month later a group of us were off to Las Vegas and we had our first photo taken together and the rest is history.

...and in true Alison fashion - many more photos after that! 

We had an incredible wedding...easily one of the best days of my life!

...and the greatest 2 week honeymoon.

Welcoming our first baby was a piece of cake! She was also a whole lot cheaper than the next 2! ha

26 months of trying to get pregnant could have rocked our relationship in the worst way. But we were in it together as we always have been and came out of it with two beautiful babies.

And one incredible little family. As any relationship, we have ups and downs but there is no one I would rather parent with and spend every day with. Marriage is tough - but we are tougher. Here's to a thousands more crazy real life days together. I love you!
