Anniversary #4: Documenting the Highlights of Our Fourth Year Together

I love one of our traditions we do every year- take anniversary pictures. We make sure each year to bring a chalkboard and list some of our highlights/accomplishments of the year so we can always remember the big moments in our lives, that take place year by year. 

So without further adieu, here's what we did "in our fourth year of marriage" 
 "In our fourth year of marriage we..."
 "Visited 7 states!"
 "Saw one of the 7 wonders of the world- Machu Picchu Peru!"
 "Toured The White House"
 "Mountain biked through the Andes"
"Learned to believe in miracles" 
"After years of failed fertility treatments..."
"We found out about our own miracle...
Baby Whiting due September 2015!"

Anniversary #4 Photoshoot: Part 1

Date Info: 
Annual Anniversary Pictures 
Price: Price of photographer 

We had this crazy idea our first anniversary that we should take family pictures every year around our anniversary. The plan is to have a wall in our home someday full of pictures showing us age each year and our family growing and changing. I love a lot of the traditions we've made together, but I think this one may take the cake for me! We do two outfit changes- a more formal and a more casual, and we like to take a chalkboard with us and write up the top events from the year. That post is coming tomorrow, and it was a good fourth year so stay tuned! 

Today I'm happy to share our favorite casual pics taken by our dear friend who has done this for us every year, even the year we were engaged, Anne Marie


Because so many have asked here's the links to where I got my outfit: 
Shirt: Anthropologie, Skirt: Forever21 (similar), Shoes: Toms

Here's a few blasts from the past:

The Best Burrito in Los Angelos

Date Info: 
La Azteca- Voted Best Burrito in L.A. 
Price: $8
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Website: La Aztec 

Sunday morning we woke up in Hollywood and planned to go to church. I've heard there are many Mormon celebrities in the Hollywood ward, and ironically that's right were we were headed. Much to our surprise, they had switched times the week before and we showed up to the Spanish ward. No problem, Hablamos Espanol! It was one of the most friendly welcoming places I've ever been. I absolutely loved watching everyone hug, meet new people, come welcome to two white gringos on the back bench, and just seem generally happy to be there. Oh if all churches could be like that! 

Speaking Spanish and listening to talks in Spanish got us in a mood for Mexican food. My friend had told us to try the Chili Relleno Burrito at a cafe in L.A. voted the best Burrito in L.A. the day before, and we couldn't get it off our minds! 

La Azteca was so authentic, everything is made from scratch, the tortillas are to die for, and the chili relleno burrito really is amazing!
