Celebrating 10 Years!!!

10 years ago today...

I married my best friend.
We had 8 bridesmaids and 7 groomsmen.
We honeymooned in Whistler, Canada.
We lived in a 700 square foot apartment in a beautiful complex.
Both of us worked full time at the college we had graduated from.
We wanted to wait 2 years until we went into the ministry.
We wanted to wait 5 years until we had children.
We wanted one boy, and one girl.
We were young, but so in love.


We have grown deeper in love.
We have changed and become better because of the other.
We have had 10 years of fun, laughs, tears and forgiveness.
We waited almost 3 years before going into ministry and just completed 7 years.
We found out I was pregnant right around our 5th anniversary.
We have 2 boys and could not imagine it any other way.
We are older, wiser and have persevered through the storms.
God has created us for each other; his strengths are my weaknesses, and my strengths are his weaknesses. God knew that we would need one another.
It is an adventure, one I am thankful to share with my best friend.
