Happy Anniversary!

To have and to hold. 


To take a leap of faith and trust.


In each other. In marriage. In love. In God.


To walk together through life, side by side always.


Isn’t that what marriage is all about?


But it’s so much more.

It’s about having someone to laugh with. To cry with. To get sucked into ridiculous TV movies with. To go on adventures with, whether it’s traveling the world or traveling to the grocery store.

It’s about balance. Respect. Trust. Love. Compassion. Responsibility.

Always having your best friend right there when you need them.

It’s about taking your love– a love that consumes you, completes you and makes you strive to be a better person every single day— and somehow, deciding that you’re ready to make that love even stronger.

It’s multiplying that love a thousand times over the instant you see the face of your newborn child.

And the awe of creating something so beyond words incredible with your love– it renders you speechless.

In the days and months and years ahead, when life is whirling around you and your children are so wonderful, so demanding and yet so precious, you look at each other, completely exhausted at the end of each and every day, and share a smile.

We’re living our life. Our life. Together.

It can be nutty at times. It can be frustrating at times. But it’s even better than I ever could have hoped, ever could have imagined, ever could have possibly dreamed. And you know I’m a dreamer.


Thanks for asking me to be your wife. There’s no one I’d rather journey through life with than you.


Happy 5th Anniversary to my amazing husband! I love you

Here’s to many, many more years of happiness and love!

Counting My Kisses: Five years feels like a big milestone to me. I’m looking forward to a fun weekend of celebrating, of looking at pictures and videos and laughing at what a wonderful, wonderful day October 28th was– and still is. It’s such a blessing to be sharing this milestone with my husband, our two sweet little girls and our fuzzy puppy. Life just doesn’t get much better than this!

Have a great weekend!
