So much of anniversaries are a pause to remember what all the wedding day was. Though that day was incredible, and spiritually significant, I think the true celebration of the past 13 years is what has transpired since. It’s in the day to day choices of what it is to be not only married (as many people are) but to make decisions that are honoring to each other and to the Lord. On the daily, for the past thirteen years, you’ve put the Lord first and by doing so have loved me so well. And then you put pregnancies and kids into the mix and I’m honestly just humbled that the Lord chose you for me… for us. We don’t deserve the Lord. And we don’t deserve you. And yet you constantly outpour His love through your willingness to sacrifice. Willingness to do whatever it takes. Willingness to be all in.
When I put Ryan to bed, I give him kisses and whisper: “I love you so much.” And he’ll whisper back: “So much.” Thank you for being so much to me for thirteen years of marriage. So much to Ryan as a dad for two. And for Mia for exactly one week.
We love me more than we can show or say.
Happy anniversary my Habeebee.
Thank you Michael for these captures of our life! (And being our go to when we thought Ryan needed (hopefully still won’t) stitches) (:
