8 Years of LOVE

Next week's our 8th wedding anniversary! The trials we have had seemed to bring us closer to one another and strengthen our trust and love. The greatest blessings have been our kids along with a growing understanding of what it means to build an eternal marriage. (Just because it's Eternal doesn't mean it is going to be perfect each day.) We have our hard days, but we have managed to keep one thing going that has always seemed to help us. And that has to do with humility. Never going to bed angry at one another and apologizing no matter who started the argument. I have a hard time holding a grudge and my husband has such a love for me that, even if it is my fault, he always apologizes even when it was my wrong. (He's so sweet!) I definitely am so blessed to have a wonderful husband who has loved me unconditionally. He works hard in school and at his job.

One memory that I will always cherish is when I was pregnant with our first child. He went out and bought a body pillow to make sure that I was very comfortable, along with beautiful flowers and a card. He does little things each day to remind me that he loves me.

*My new photo header above is a new family tradition. I took the kids to take a picture at the restaurant where we met. I plan on doing this each year in front of this wall. I made an album for Kenneth with photos from where we met, where we had our first date etc.
(He loved it!)

To my husband:

How blessed I am to have you to share this life with.

You are my heaven on earth.

Thank you for 8 wonderful years

our beautiful kids and for being the

amazing man that you are!

I am the luckiest woman ever!

--Love me
