Today’s a big day in the Oakes household, it marks three years of marriage for Marcus and me. I can’t believe it’s been three years since we said I do, time has flown! These three years have been filled with happiness, sadness, trials and more love than I could’ve imagined.
The biggest thing I’ve learned thus far in marriage is that family is absolutely everything. Nothing else matters. You hear this so often, but at least for me I never really took it into account and really dug deeper to see what it meant. That was until recently. As we’ve faced some of our toughest trials yet this past year, we’ve also been blessed with our biggest blessing–our sweet baby girl who will enter our lives any day now. She’s already impacted us more than I would have ever expected. She has truly given me an entire new perspective on life and on family. Sometimes life is mean, but without my little team, my people–my amazing husband, our little baby girl on the way and our spunky pup–I wouldn’t be able to make it through. They are my biggest supporters and my reason for living and doing all that I do everyday. So on this anniversary day those are my sappy thoughts. I can’t express or quite put into words how lucky I feel to be married to such an amazing, caring and patient man. I’m sure we all think our husband is the best and we totally should! But let’s be honest, mine really is 😉 Here’s to eternity and a little flashback of our dating days/last three years!
Ready to see some crazy changes and baby faces?! A little timeline of my favorite pictures from the last three years + dating.

It’s crazy to me how much things have changed, how much we’ve grown as individuals and as a family. I can’t wait to see what the future holds and to watch this guy be a Dad, he’s going to be absolutely amazing at it. I love my little family so much.
