I meant to post this yesterday, but I got sucked into looking at old photos. Going through all of the old pics made me part wistful part grateful. We have made it through so much and come out better for it, I think.
Now I bring you vintage Derek!
Less than a day old Derek with his mom and dad.
Such a cutie patootie.
11 years old.
I LOVE the look on Der’s face! What 13 year old doesn’t love socks and underwear for their birthday?!
Our wedding day. It was in his Nannie and Poppies living room. We planned it in four days after only dating for four months. I am not sure what our rush was. I bet everyone we knew thought we were pregnant, but I think we were just young, in love and impatient.
Der cried through most of it and I was so full of nerves that my eyebrow kept spasming through the whole ceremony. We were quite the mess.
Happily ever after has been a lot of hard work, but well worth it!
I hope you’re not tired of old photos because there’s more tomorrow.
