  • Wedding: August 2010

I was in University, drinking and eating pizza most nights, dating my hubby and I think just had our puppy. We weren’t even close to the wedding planning stage yet! In 5 years I will be a mom (hopefully to a couple at least!).

  • Wedding: November 2011

Five years ago I was getting ready to graduate high school and start college. I was dating Fiance about 6 months, and I was stressed about my senior project!

Five years from now I hope to have my student loans almost paid off and I will have a well established career. Hopefully Fiance and I will have a lot more done with the house. Babies won’t be in the picture for a couple years after

  • Wedding: July 2011

Five years ago I was living in London, living the dream life.  Travelling nearly every weekend, working not too hard as a social worker, living for after work drinks on Fridays and Sunday roasts at the pub.  I was dating an Aussie (not the one I’m engaged to now!) and had the world at my fingertips.  Life was good at 26 without a care in the world other than having fun and seeing as much of the world as possible.

Five years from now, I will be happily married, maybe with a baby or two, and most likely enjoying life as a stay at home mum.  Fiance and I don’t know what continent we’ll be living on as between us, we have citizenship in Australia, the US, and the UK.  We love to travel though so I’m not sure we’ll put permanent roots down anywhere.  I may return to work as a social worker or teacher as I have qualifications in both but it wouldn’t be until the kids are in school full-time. 

Yikes, in five years, I will be on the downside of my 30s!

5 years ago I was 18 and probably on spring break from my freshman year of college.. I don’t think I went anywhere though, so I was chilling in Chicago. 5 years from now I’ll be 28 and hopefully having my first kid right around now!

  • Wedding: October 2010 - Ladder 15 Restaurant

Five years ago, I was drinking way too much in a crappy college apartment, bartending weddings on the weekends, and didn’t have a serious boyfriend.

Five years from now, I hope to be a mother of at least one child, maybe going on two.  I hope that we move away from New Jersey and are either living internationally or in a far more beautiful place.  I also hope that I’ll find something rewarding to do part-time that will allow me a creative outlet, but will also allow me to be the focused mom that I want to be!

  • Wedding: August 2018 - Oakland Manor

5 years ago I was 21 and had recently come out of a horrible relationship. I was starting to hang out with friends again and really enjoy  life (which I hadn’t been doing the past 5 years in that crappy relationship!). I think I had planned ot get out of town after graduation, but didn’t know how or where to yet.

5 years from now I’ll be living in England and hopefully preggers with our first child! 🙂

5 years ago Fiance and I were living in his parents basement counting down the days until April 1st when our apartment would be ready. We had been together for about a year at this point. 

If all goes as planned, in 5 years we will be running our software company full time and pregnant with our first and only child.

5 years ago I had just met Darling Husband a few months back and was spending all my time with him. I wasnt doing well in school and wasn’t all that happy.

5 years from now I hope to be pregnant with or have our first child, possibly own a house and live somewhere completely different than Virginia, the area that I grew up in!

I had just left my career as a Registered Nurse and just graduated with my Education degree.  I was teaching grade 7 Math.   I was living with my ex, and unsure about what my next goal was.   I ended up buying a house and TTC my son that next year.    It fell apart shortly after he was born.

In five years, I am hoping my family is complete and we will be in the process of building our forever home.  I will have 10 years in, with my career, and should be pretty settled.

  • Wedding: October 2006

Five years ago I was 20 and me and my SO had been dating a smidge over 1 year. We were both in college and I was absolutely loving life (still am, but in a different way), being free, and having wonderful roommates.

Five years from now I’ll be 30 and if I’m not married to my SO, there will be hell to pay 😉 but I’m sure we will be so let’s go with that.  I’ll be in private practice – hopefully my own – and fully licensed by then.  I’d also like to be living in my first house! And… probably beginning to think about thinking about TTC; I want to wait until I’m married 4 years before babies and since we’re not getting married in 1 year, I def won’t be conceiving in 5 years.

Well in five years I’ll probably be working in a job that has nothing to do with my bachelors or masters because they are education degrees and I live in PA and the governor just screwed public education like nobody’s business.

  • Wedding: June 2008 - Winery in the Gold Country

My then boyfriend (now husband) and I had JUST moved into our condo that we live in now this month five years ago! I was 25 pounds lighter and still pranced around our condo half naked because I was pretty comfortable with my body. Haha. I was a writer/editor for TV and video production in Sacramento

In five years I hope to still be working in weddings…it’s such a SUPER FUN and fabulous industry! I hope to be living in Minnesota, where my husband is from, and I hope that we’ve survived the rough housing market OK. Our condo is NOT worth anywhere near what we paid for it right now  🙁 I hope we’ve been able to have sold it for what we paid for it (yeah right). Hopefully we will have decided whether or not we want to have a baby by then…I’ll be 34, so maybe I’ll be pregnant with our first? Who knows!
