Matt and I had our first real date on October 10, 1998. We spent one incredible day talking non-stop and falling in love with each other. To commemorate that date, we purchased a Northern Red Oak tree with some wedding money and planted it October 10, 1999. We now have a tradition of getting our photo taken by that tree each year. Here are some examples:
1999, with Barron, our German Shepherd
2004, with Bailey, our Chocolate Lab
It is so fun to look back in our albums to compare not only the size of our tree, but the growth in our family and the changes to the front yard!
