{Seven} Years of Perfection

Believe it or not, I have been a Mrs. for 7 years today.

As most others do, you may expect me to say, "Seven years ago, I married my best friend." But that would not be totally true. It would be much more accurate to say, "Today, I am married to my best friend."

Don't worry. I am not breaking this news to Bob via the blog. We had this discussion the other night and both agreed that we barely knew each other when we got married, even though we thought we did!

But in fact, we didn't even know the other existed 3 years before our wedding. But we did know that we enjoyed being around each other. And we did believe that God had brought us together to become lifelong partners. So we took the next step and entered the marriage covenant, pledging to love each other for better, for worse, in good times, and in bad.

And so we have.

Today, I truly am married to my best friend. He gets me. He supports me. He loves me. I think he even likes me. He makes me laugh. All the time. Even when I don't want to.

He loves the Lord and is committed to leading our family in His will. He makes me feel secure and protected.

He loves our children with every fiber of his being. I cannot begin to tell you how much this makes me love him! Eveley gets so excited when the weekend rolls around because she knows daddy gets to "stay all day." Just as Robbie did, Eveley and Caleb adore their father.

We celebrated our anniversary in the most amazing way. It was so amazing that I know I will not be able to adequately convey the fabulousness of it all. I will share a few pictures from our celebration and try to pen the full story later this week.

Here's a little hint.

Sweet Nour Hope looks so much like her big brother.

Bigger hint here.

I am hoping that you might share where you found the pretty black (?)dress with the pink accents. I live in the pacific northwest so you don't have to worry about seeing someone in your dress :)

I have chills. I want all the details too. I know it was just the anniversary of Jude's death and I still pray for his family.

Happy anniversary. I love the honesty and beauty of your post
