Decade of Awesome


Today marks the 10 year anniversary of when Matt and I started dating. It is hard to believe that it's been that long, but it has been a decade of happiness and fun all around. In that time, we've lived on both sides of the country, had a wedding, gone through multiple career changes, traveled the world, adopted a cat, and watched a lot of movies. Hard to imagine that all of this came out of what was supposed to be a summer fling, but luckily we were both smart enough to realize what a good thing we'd stumbled into.


The night it all began, New College Graduation PCP May 26th, 2000. Matt, Gabe, and James Ponder came down to visit and I was officially smitten. Later on we ended up calling this our anniversary.

My graduation from New College, May 25th, 2001.

Matt and Sidney hanging out in Tallahassee. Summer of 2001.

Crazy hair-dying days. Pretty sure this was at the photo booth at Movies at Governor's Square. Likely during the film school years, so either 2002 or 2003.


Halloween 2004, after we moved to LA. I was a space cowgirl. Matt was allegedly Balki from the Thanksgiving episode of "Perfect Strangers."


May 2005, the Getty Center and Venice Beach. Julia took these photos while she, my mom, and my aunt Maureen were visiting us.



Halloween 2005. I'm a generic ancient Roman. Matt is Dignan from Bottle Rocket. In an amazing coincidence, our friend Dennis shows up as Anthony from Bottle Rocket. Perfect.


March 2006, at the Getty Center.


At Drew & Becca's wedding, Buffalo, NY June 23, 2006.


One of my all-time favorite pictures of us, taken by our very talented friend Derek Bell. We commissioned Derek to take photos at the Japanese Gardens in Van Nuys to have some pictures of the two of us to put on our wedding website. Taken in November 2006

This one is really cool, a reflection in the pond as we were standing on a small plank bridge.


DIY postcards we made and sent out for our wedding.


Coachella, April 2007


Our wedding, May 27, 2007. (More wedding photos tomorrow!)


Honeymoon in the Bahamas.


Zombie Matt, sometime in the fall of 2007.

Me with Emma Goldman, May 2008. The perfect addition to our little family.


These two are from a trip we took to Catalina Island in August, 2008. We got engaged in Catalina over Memorial Day weekend 2005, so it was fun and sweet to go back. In these photos we're perfecting Matt's patented "Look to the Future" pose.



Our trip to Ireland and the Oxygen Music festival, July 2009.


In Mexico celebrating Ivette's birthday, September 2009


Snowball fight at the Waldens' in Virginia over Christmas 2009.


Because we can never have enough photo booth pictures!


Happy Anniversary, Matt! Thanks for making the last 10 years so awesome and giving me lots to look forward to in all the coming years. I love you so incredibly much.
