That’s pretty intense to think that it is only one more year until a full decade of marriage. Woah. That’s so exciting! I’m so thrilled.  I love being married.  If you have been dating someone for a while. . go get married!  Seriously! It is the best! If you’ve read our love story you know it wasn’t all easy in the beginning, but I am so glad with how God’s helped us through everything!  We are aging together – me with wrinkles coming around and Rob with his hair thinning and greying and it’s fine because we’re doing it together! I love him so much.

The title of this post. . .we heard loads of cicadas the day these were taken and it was so lovely. I know they make that noise to mate with other cicadas, so I figured since our anniversary is this week, it made sense.

Our 6 year old Leto took these two shots of us.
They are funny because in the second shot I was trying to tell him how to take the photo and he took it as I was talking hahaha.  These are the first photos he’s taken, so they are pretty cute and special. Look how crooked we are in the first one. hehe. Love his perspective.

  1. What a way to prepare for your anniversary, Victoria. Leto took a couple of great shots. Is that a park near your house? It’s beautiful.

    1. We live near a load of various parks. The one in my header is different from the one that is in today’s post for instance . . I suppose this explains why it floods so often where we live. . .too many rivers and lakes everywhere!

  2. Beautiful vintage dress and the photos are nicely composed. I’ve been reading through your blog and like your smart film reviews. Kudos also on your work against trafficking. Back in the Eighties, I engaged in feminist activism against pornography and trafficking.

    1. That is great that you have been involved for that long to fight pornography and trafficking. I think in the 80s there was barely knowledge of trafficking and not many people probably thought to speak out against pornography either or the ties that they have to one another.

  3. You look so pretty! Love the bow on your head and the plaid dress and the shoes, so basically everything 🙂 Happy anniversary as well 🙂 What you mentioned above is the advice Rob and I give to people who’ve dated for a LONG time. You might as well get married, right? I’d feel so insecure if I were dating someone for a long time and not have talked about marriage.

  4. Pretty Victoria!! This is a great outfit! It’s funny because I am pretty sure Lauren has worn something close to this once or twice. I want to dress you two up and do a blogger-twin photo shoot! hehehe

    Congrats on 9 years!! Anniversaries feel like holidays, so special! I hope that you guys have an amazing day! You are correct, marriage is crazy but so amazing.

  5. This dress is simply gorgeous on you. You look like you were teleported straight from the 70’s! Happy anniversary to you and your husband! 9 years is quite an accomplishment. Not only that, but you two still REALLY love each other. It’s so inspiring!
