Happy 4th Wedding Anniversary!!

Four years ago today I put on a big white dress and had a panic attack that I looked like a pumpkin. It was my irrational Bridezilla moment.

But it felt real.

Thankfully it passed quickly and few were scathed.

I walked down an aisle full of joy and excitement. Full of hope. Such hope!

There waiting for me was a godly man with blazing blue eyes and a heart of gold... And he was gorgeous. And hot. And godly...

And waiting. On me. The white robed pumpkin.

And we walked back down the aisle together as one. We ate cake, hugged friends, got birdseed thrown in our faces. Literally.

And drove away, towards a life together. Towards a life of learning every day what it means to love eachother more unconditionally and what being Christ like really means.

We moved to Africa. We clung to one another amidst uncertainty and fear. We clung to one another amidst adventure and new lessons.

And we packed our little bags and moved back home.

And took in an exchange student.

And mulched our garden.

And joined a church.

And loved.

Happy Anniversary!
