Summertime Fun

Hi there,  my apologies for being such a bad blogger lately; the summer bug has definitely bitten us and we’ve been busy bees enjoying much of the warmer weather with friends and family.  Since it’s been a while, I thought I’d give you all a little update on what’s new in the Buehler world.

We Celebrated A Special Anniversary
on 5.26, Marty and I clinked glasses to ring in 5 blissful years of marriage.  It’s so hard to believe that 5 years ago, we were just babies ourselves walking down the aisle with everything ahead of us. Last year on our 4-year anniversary, I couldn’t even imagine how much better things could get.  And here we are now, with our beautiful daughter who is a living testament to our union and the greatest gift we could have ever given one another.  We are truly living our dream as parents and could not be more excited for many more precious years to come, future children, and endless adventures.

And Then We Kicked off Summer with Memorial Day Weekend at the Lake
We packed up our car with pups, Everly, swimsuits and our summer gear and headed down to the lake to enjoy the day and get some sun.  Everly enjoyed breaking in yet another bathing suit, eating as much watermelon as her little heart desired, and being surrounded by all the sights and sounds the great outdoors has to offer.  There were boat rides, BBQ, lots of laughter, sunshine, and even a dip in the water.

And Now We’re Looking Forward to a Fully Packed Summertime Agenda
Summer is my favorite time of year, and this year we’ve got a lot to look forward to.  My brain is buzzing with excitement knowing that we have an upcoming trip to the beach with my family, followed by Everly’s first birthday party to plan – which I really need to get cracking on!  The wheels are already turning and I’ve got a few ideas up my sleeve for making her birthday special and I hope to share them with you soon.  Until then, it’s Sunday and I’ve got one happy lady who needs some attention from her Mama.  Take care!

Love,
E

Has it really been four years since Marty and I tied the knot?  Feels like just yesterday we were getting ready to walk down the aisle.  I can still feel the sweltering 87 degree heat on my back as we whisked around Forest Park taking pictures with our wedding party and best friends, or the anxious feeling that overcame me as I clutched my father’s arm and the doors opened in that Church, or the overwhelming urge to burst into tears or laughter when we were first announced as husband and wife.  Such a proud day for us.

We spent our happy little Anniversary at home with our dogs, putting together Baby E’s crib and and talking about what a huge life changing event this little girl is going to be.  We celebrated with ice cream and fresh strawberries from the farmer’s market, and were thrilled when we spotted the first lightening bugs of the season who decided to make an appearance for our private celebration!  It sounds silly, but every little telltale sign of summer is a huge deal for us because we know that means she will be here soon.

Love you Marty and here’s to many more years of love, adventure and  babies!  Cheers! 🙂
