this old polaroid of josh and me was taken in central park about a week before our wedding. i look at it today and all i see are two babies who haven’t a clue what is in store. ;)  we still might be clueless when it comes to a lot of things, but i’m just glad to have the chance to go through life with my best friend by my side. what a wonderful seven years of marriage it has been. i love you so much, josh davis. happy anniversary!

    We count the years we’ve been together with our spouses but it is so refreshing to look back at who we’ve been and how it all started. And then we carry on counting because we want the dream to go on. Happy anniversary to you! :) xxx

    What a beautiful photo! You both look so different; you have so many lovely freckles now, and Josh have a huge beard! But you look lovely both now and seven years ago. And also – congrats on your coming baby! I’m so excited for you. Would you like to share some thoughts about going from 2 kids to 3 some time? I grew up with a brother and sister, and I can see both positive and negative things about being three siblings – of course all the positive things way up the negative ones!

    So Ive never been much of a blogger/blog reader. But I stumbled upon your blog a little while ago and have been basically stalking it for the past few months. Im sure you have people write to you all the time so this is probably nothing special but I cant stand to not say anything aanymore. You have such a beautiful family and such a beautiful relationship with your husband, that I hope to someday be half as happy as you are. Your kids are so lucky to have such an incredible mother, and the way you talk about your love for them is just inspiring.

    For just about my whole life Ive wanted to live in New York, and reading your blog makes me believe that it is more than possible to raise a family in such a wonderful city. Im only a junior in college but I hope to someday have a life and family like yours. Taza, you and your family are always in my prayers and im so happy for you with a the third baby on the way. Im the middle of three children, and I’d like to think that I turned out okay .God would never give you more than you can handle!

    Have a more than wonderful day!

    My own wedding is coming up and if we end up half as happy as you two seem to be I’ll count myself lucky. Marriage is such a gamble but you guys seem to have won hands down.

  13. You look so much like Mandy Moore here, it’s not funny! Congrats, guys!

  14. happy anniversary!! :) wow 7 years – that’s so awesome.

    my husband and i just celebrated 3 yesterday. we were definitely babies when we got married and people still call us babies. but i agree 100% that it’s so nice to have your best friend go through life with you.. figuring everything out together. happy happy day, you two! excited for y’all.

    Naomi! My husband & I just celebrated our 10th a few days ago & my 30th bday is tomorrow. :) I’m a June girl like you. My hubby & I had two girls close in age & a baby boy when your Samson was born. Our 4th is due in December, too. :)

    I’ve been thinking about your post from yesterday. We were living in a little apartment in Argentina when our 3rd was born, & even though it had it’s challenges, I wouldn’t trade it for anything! “Keep calm & get creative” became my motto which I know you won’t have a problem with! We did so many fun things in that little apartment of ours (although getting out once a day was a must – and still is)! I enjoy following your journey & wish you a Happy bday/anniversary month. It only gets better – crazier, but better!

    I read the comments just to see if anybody else thought you looked like Mandy Moore. Apparently I’m not crazy, at least not this time!

    So sweet! Many more!! :)

  37. I have never commented but LOVE reading your blog and just want to thank you so much for your example and love for each other and your kids and the city. AND for silently showing a wonderful example of your testimony. I recently stopped following another NYC blogger who has chosen a different path, which is fine, but it just makes me appreciate you and your goodness, smile and love for life and the blessings you receive when you are faithful. Thank you!
