4 years ago today we said “I do”.
Hubby and I eloped (with permission) 35 days after we met. We got married in our jeans and long sleeved Ts, by a justice of the peace in downtown Houston. While a big part of me still itches for a wedding/vow renewal ceremony, we got the important stuff done ;) I still vividly remember the way he was grinning at me as he said his vows and how I teared up as I said mine. I was (and still am) very much in awe of the wonderful gift of marriage that God was blessing us with. Such an incredible moment and memory.
And now it’s been 4 years. Hubby and I both agree that it feels like it’s been a forever. 4 years sounds like such a short amount of time compared to how long it feels like it’s already been. I always say that it’s because we’ll be together forever, so it feels like forever already ;)
As I reflect on 4 years of marriage, I’m left feeling thankful. Thankful for my hubby’s patience with me. Thankful that God brought us together and gave us love to share. Thankful for every hard time and every good time. Thankful for every moment that we have lived and grown together. And I’m really excited. I have no idea what our future holds. We have lots of tentative plans, several hopes/dreams and a lot of love ;) There is so much that could go wrong in the next few years, and so much that could go right. We don’t really know what to expect, (we never have) but we know one thing “it’s always better when we’re together”.
“Our dreams, and they are made out of real things,
Like a shoebox of photographs with sepia-toned lovin
I believe in memories
They look so, so pretty when I sleep
And when I wake up you look so pretty sleeping next to me
But there is not enough time
And there is no, no song I could sing
And there is no combination of words I could say
But I will still tell you one thing We’re better together”
From “better together” sung by Jack Johnson
Here’s to 4 years of marital bliss ;)
looking forward to many more happy years to come <3
