4 Years Ago...

Four years ago today I married the love of my life.

(FYI - this is probably my favorite picture ever of us.... and it was just a random snapshot by the pool one afternoon. Thanks Alicia for taking it!)

We met in our first semester of law school.... and became instant friends. We would go out to dinner and movies and study together and talk all night long - it was like we were dating, but we weren't. It took me a few months to "convince" him that we had more than a friendship and thankfully I finally did!

I knew there was something special about him from the first time I talked to him.... and it didn't take me long to realize that my life wasn't complete without him in it! We dated for seven months and as a complete shock to me he proposed at dinner one night. Of course I said "Yes".... when I finally realized what was happening. :)

We spent the next three months planning a small-ish wedding in my hometown. And then we were married. It has only gotten better with each day and each year that passes!

The past four years haven't been easy or even always fun.... but I wouldn't trade any of it for the world!

We are best friends.

We talk about it all the time, but we really feel incredibly blessed to have each other. We know how special marriage is and we never take our vows lightly.

Thank you, Jared, for always making me smile and laugh and feel incredibly loved. Thank you for being the wonderful man you are and inspiring me (and others) in everything you do. Thank you for always keeping God first in your life and our marriage..... Thank you for marrying me four years ago. 

It is amazing what four years can bring.... and I can't wait to see what the rest of our life together holds!

Happy Anniversary Baby!
