4 years

Today is our 4 year wedding anniversary, wowzas! Life is good, marriage is so sweet, and parenthood is such a treat to experience with Jon. Seeing Jon becoming a dad has made me fall in love with him in such a deeper way. He's patient and compassionate, I feel so lucky to be on this wild ride with him. I'd be lying if I told you I don't already turn into mush when I think about him holding our daughter. Marriage when you are a parent is a lot different than sans babies. It's harder to be intentional, the chores and duties are endless, and it is an emotional roller coaster but it is SO much sweeter. I love getting to date my husband at 7:31pm when our boy is asleep, even if that means sitting on the sofa playing cards while staring at the obnoxious amounts of toys that litter our once spotless family room. Year 5 of marriage is going to bring a heck of a lot of change and there is no one else I'd rather brace the chaos with than Jonathan. I can easily get mushy when talking about Ford but I don't mush enough about my husband, an undeserved gift, a man of God, who points me to Jesus. 

I love looking at our wedding pictures every year on our anniversary to remind me of the promises we made to one another and the FUN we had celebrating the covenant of marriage. I also like reminding myself that there was a time in my life where I wasn't pregnant, had a nice tan, and actually spent time getting ready. It's funny to see a beardless Jon in these photos because he's had a beard for a couple of years now :). 






Every year on our anniversary we take a photo of us holding the previous year's anniversary photo. Cheesy Pinterest find? Yup. And this year our neighbors our watching Ford for the evening while we enjoy a date night out. A happy anniversary, indeed!

That is such a cute idea; having a picture taken while holding the previous years' photo! This year the hubs and I are celebrating 9 years (OH MY!) but i still think it would be fun to start!
