I hardly recognize these bright-eyed kids from seven years ago:
So very much has changed since then. We have both received degrees, we've had numerous jobs between the two of us, we have lived in various apartments, bought a house, traveled near and far, and mostly braved the ups and downs of everyday life together. And man, oh, man, it's been a great ride!
But of everything that we've done together, clearly our greatest work has been these three:
My goodness, how I love them! And how I love their Daddy!
If there was some way that I could have had a glimpse 10 or 15 years ago into my life today, I think my heart would have absolutely thrilled at what I would have seen. Is my life perfect? Of course not! But really, I have everything that I have ever wanted MOST: incredible husband, beautiful children, gospel-centered home. And I just feel so, so blessed.
So thank-you to the man who has helped all my best dreams come true. I love you more today than I ever could have imagined possible when we started out seven years ago.
