10 years

Today is the anniversary of 10 years being married to my incredible husband. There have been tough times and wonderful times. But I wouldn't change any of it.

Ten years ago today, I stood in front of all our friends and family and swore to love, honor, and cherish him for the rest of my life. No one could have told me that I could possibly love him more than I did on that day. I was full of excitement for the new life we would share together and for what was to come. My heart was filled with joy.

As I think back to our wedding day, I have to go through everything that has happened in the past 10 years and realize how foolish I was to think I couldn't love him more. He has supported me in everything I've wanted to do. All the crazy ideas. Constantly wanting to paint something a different color. The quitting my steady, paying job to open a photo studio. Helping me at weddings and portrait sessiosn when I know he would rather be somewhere else but never complaining. He has pushed me to step out of my comfort zone on more than one occasion to do things I never would have even thought about doing.

And now as the father of our child, I see him in an even different way. He is the most amazing father and patient man. Making me love him more and more daily. Don't get me wrong, it has not been all a romantic dream. Marriage is work, but for every tough moment, there are two amazing moments, making it all worth it.

To Trey: Thank you for loving me in spite of me, always looking over my mistakes. You are the most wonderful husband, the best father to our son, amazing man and pastor that I could have asked for. Thank you for falling in love with me. I am and always will be smitten!! I love you.

Happy Anniversary.
