These classic photos were taken almost 10 years ago now. Life was so different then. Our 10 year anniversary is less than a week away, and I wanted to share some of the things that made that time what it was.
Below you'll notice the classic elements of this photo....this photo is SOOO not me! But I was a mere 17 when I was engaged, and just 19 when we got married. Let's just say I didn't know a lot about weddings and what your options were. Let's just say I didn't really know who I was at 19...I think that's safe!
I also had no idea what life would bring. I had no idea that the below friend (can anyone guess who this is?) and I would actually "breakup" for several years before we would become friends again!
I definitely had NO idea that I would someday be completely OK with the below additions to our wedding album. I have never held it sacred or anything, but certainly didn't plan on allowing budding young artist to add their touch!
I also would have never guess, that the lady standing directly to my left would turn out to be the best friend a girl could ever have. At this point, we knew each other so little, it was almost ridiculous that I asked her to do my and my wedding parties hair!
There were many things that happened up until this moment below, that make me wonder "why in the world people do this whole big wedding thing?"....and I can't say as though I'd do it the same again, but I would certainly say "I do" again to this man!

Alicia is wife, mother, and creator of Baby Elephant Ears. Baby Elephant Ears was created out of parental concern, not financial desire. In 2005, when their second child was an infant, he cried all the time and just couldn't seem to get comfortable.
After seeking advice and suggestion from the medical community and alternative medicine, they eventually ended up in the chiropractors office where their baby was successfully treated for a subluxation, discomfort most likely the result of the strain during labor, which was now being exacerbated by the normal lack of infant neck strength. Only proper neck, head, and back alignment would offer him relief. When they couldn't find a product to give their baby the necessary support, Alicia took matters into her own hands and crafted her own infant support pillow. The first Baby Elephant Ears was born!
