Five years ago on the morning of December 27th, I was taking a long, sudsy bath and lots of deep breaths as I prepared to walk down the aisle toward my new life as Shawn's wife that evening.
Five years later, I sat at our breakfast table across from him, next to our dearly loved son, in a home we own in Raleigh, North Carolina. I never could've seen it coming, but I'm so thankful for the journey the Lord has us on. We've lived in three states together, traveled to more than 10 (and a couple countries), gotten a degree, landed a dream job, had a baby and lost another. It's been a full 5 years.
Life across the breakfast table from Shawn,
in the trenches of late nights and screaming babies with Shawn,
in the pews of our new church next to Shawn...
I couldn't ask for anything better.
Happy 5th anniversary, my love!
