Fifth Anniversary of Becoming a Hayes

Though I share a lot about myself here, I don’t share a lot of my life in general. This, however, I thought was pretty important to share. Corey and I are celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary today! Without him, I wouldn’t even be a Hayes, making the name of this blog defunct. Besides that, I wouldn’t have my better half, my #1 Disney buddy, the guy who makes me smile every day. Most of all, the man who I am thankful every day for making me feel like I’m special. I have a few wedding pictures to share with you all today. It was so hard to pick just a few! If you live in the South, definitely consider Abra Michelle Photography  to photograph your special occasion. She and her husband are an amazing team. I treasure every picture I have of this amazing day. Enjoy!
