I can't believe John and I are coming up to our 2nd year anniversary...we've had two Christmases, two Thanksgivings, two birthdays (apiece), two years of seminary, so many wonderful things to celebrate! And I think I'm happier as each day passes as I know him better. When we got married I was so elated that I would finally see him everyday, be with him everyday...and now we don't see each other as often as we would like, but it is everyday! And when he comes home we have some laughs and hang out and talk about each other's days - nothing fantastic or ground breaking, but it's those times that I really love - that I know we are befriending one another even after two years of marriage.
I wanted to post some of our wedding pics in honor of our upcoming anniversary and I know that the next few weeks before our celebration will be very busy, so I figured sooner, better than later...and I love to look at them too. Maybe that is a little conceited, but I think everyone should love and cherish their wedding so much that they love their pictures and memories - it's the best when I get to share them. And as I think about that day that joined John and I together I also think about all the prep my mom and I did and all the time I spent with my parents that last year at home. I was just sharing with my mom on the phone tonight how my trip home for Mother's Day was different than the last time I went to see them...it's changed somehow...that is, I've changed somehow and that has become my parents house. It will always be where I grew up but John has really become home. I couldn't wait to get home to him from when I had been away. And that's the way it should be. Some of us come along a bit more quickly than others, but we all eventually make the break and start our own way, which can be difficult because it's all changes, but it's what we need to do...We'll always have the memories and experiences from our 'parent's house' that made us who we are - who we have grown to be and who we want to be. Even in my mid - 20's I have visions of who I want to be. So thankful to know the Lord isn't done with me yet.
Hope you enjoy the pictures...I've enjoyed sharing them...

Just a little recap for pictures. John and I celebrated his birthday with dinner and shopping for a new pair of shoes - it's so much fun to shop for your husband. He is always so generous to me - I love it when it's my turn to spoil him. His work schedule has been a little different lately and we have gotten more opportunities to see each other - which has been so nice. And of course I had to post pics of my Flea Market finds for my mom so she could see what I found. And speaking of my Mom I had such a great time suprising her on Mother's Day. My Dad and sister Steph helped me pull it off - and she was so suprised - you should have seen her face. It was so great. I got to see two of my three sisters while I was at home too. Steph was up for Saturday and Sunday and then Sunday night Jenn and Randy and their family came to visit for the evening. I had not seen them since last year - my nieces and nephew have gotten so much bigger!!
Hopefully, more (and better) pictures to come in the future - I know how much our mom's love them!
