HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to my person! Today we are celebrating our second wedding anniversary, and it doesn't seem possible that time has gone as fast as it has. Our day was beautiful, the leaves were full of fall color, the air was crisp, and our favorite people were all in one place. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding and reception. And if I could I would do it all over again, the exact same way.
Marriage is wonderful for all that it is. It not only gives you a companion to journey through life with, but it challenges you to be a better person, to love selflessly, to put someone before yourself, to respect a new perspective, to have patience and show kindness (even when you don't feel like it), and so on. There are endless ways that marriage shapes you over the course of your life. And in just two years I have seen so much growth between husband and I, both collectively and individually. We made a covenant with the Lord to honor and love one another like Christ does each of us. That's quite a commitment to uphold, but do you know with faith as our foundation, a community that keeps us accountable, and love so deep for one another, it's a commitment that we are more than happy to live out.
I can't imagine life without this guy of mine. He makes it all the better, and I love him for making my days happier, my heart joyful, and my stomach full of butterflies. Today is to us, my love! Thank you for making life all the sweeter!
And because it wouldn't be okay to pass through our wedding anniversary without watching our wedding video a handful of times....here's to pressing replay over and over again!
