Just married, September 23, 2008!
Ten years ago today, Jim and I said our vows at a cathedral in downtown Honolulu. We had just a handful of family and friends there to witness.

We couldn’t foresee all the things we’d do in our marriage — moving to the southeast, living in the frozen tundra, adventuring out west... adopting two Rottweilers... and we certainly couldn’t plan the fertility struggles we endured this past decade.

We’ve weathered a lot together. Marriage has been so rewarding, but as everyone says, it also comes with heartache and challenges. I’m so grateful we’ve been able to come this far.

This anniversary feels so much bigger than just a decade of marriage, and it is really overwhelming and incredible we finally get our chance to experience the joy of a baby in just a few weeks.

Anniversaries remind us that our lives are imperfectly perfect. We may not have the house of our dreams, but we have made a home in every city we’ve lived. We’ve earned great friends in every corner of the country, and we have come to a place in our lives where we realize that what we have is enough. It’s a blessed feeling. And I hope it’s not just the pregnancy hormones talking. ❤️ #happyanniversary #tenyearsago #marriage #pregnancyhormones #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #babyjjvd #firstpregnancy #ivfjourney #ttcjourney #love
Omg! We did it! We spent almost a month out at the @wastatefair — we met so many wonderful people, ate lots of crazy food, rode too many dizzy rides and shared so many incredible stories. What a great way to celebrate Washington and @king5seattle. Thank you for a memorable month! ❤️ #statefair #washington #k5fair 📷: @lmatsukawa
Look at the bead thingys someone made for us!! I have loved being at the @wastatefair this month! @king5seattle
Lucky me! Funny, smart and handsome fellas by my side on the @king5seattle red carpet. Our #Emmy show was a lot of fun! Even though @kimholcomb got to be on the real gold carpet, I think she would’ve had a great time with us!
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? Have you ever wondered what’s on top of #Seattle’s historic @thesmithtower? Well, let’s start with a petite fire pistol named Petra who fought for the opportunity to make it her home. She also shares this space to connect and bring light to the public. Can’t wait to share her story! 📷: @linda_lowry
Are you ready for the #Emmys? We are! Doing a preshow at 4! So excited to work with @kimholcomb @jimdever and @chriscashmanonline! Only on 👑 KING 📺
My baby Piper is losing a lot of her hair because she’s been on prednisone for nearly a year and it’s killing her skin cells. She has what’s basically a form of celiac disease and veterinarians are stumped. She has the sweetest disposition and is playful and active — if anyone can help us, please let me know. One of her litter mates died from cancer and her dad died suddenly, too. Piper’s condition is often misdiagnosed as lymphoma so it makes me wonder what other #rotties may have been misdiagnosed. 😭 I love her so much.

What’s your favorite leftover meal? Today it was leftover breakfast bacon and last week’s chicken and boiled eggs... paired with those two weird corn on the cobs in the freezer (that I grilled for extra 👌🏼) to make a pretty kick ass cobb salad! Not to mention the walnuts I’ve been trying to eat since God knows when and the bleu cheese vat Jim bought at Costco... sometimes I need a pantry/freezer overhaul and this put a little dent in it. Thanks to @hipfoodiemom1 for the inspiration, too. 
Feeling accomplished in the brown bag lunch game!

Pregnancy is hard. Just ask my husband who napped out on my belly during our kick counts. 😂😂😂 #ivfjourney #33weekspregnant #firstbaby #kickcounts #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #hapababy #marriage #love
What’s up with dogs always wanting to be by a door? #MinnieandPiper always like to be close to the entry. ❤️ #rottweilersofinstagram #rotties #rottiesofig #dogs #dogsofinstagram #dogsofig #rottweilers #pets #petsofig #rottstagram
Another great week at the fair! This pic was my fave. We had to taste test some of the exotic food at the @wastatefair — iguana sausage, llama sausage, ostrich burgers and bull testicles 😬 I got by with the ostrich burger — it is a red meat that actually kind of tasted like beef, but it still grossed me out 😫 📷: @yovanovich
