July 12th....

Today marks the fourth year that I've been married to the most wonderful man in the world! And each day has been better than the day before. There are some blessings that just can't be measured, and spending your life with person that God specifically chose for you is one of them.

These are some of the roses Sir has given me over the past week. You see, last Thursday Sir came home with a single rose and a pair of chocolates. I was surprised and delighted. When he gave me a kiss and said "Happy Anniversary week" the first thought that popped through my head was, "Our anniversary is next week." but I wasn't about to say anything. If he wanted to spoil me for seven days starting the week before I wouldn't complain. And so, each day he brought me another rose and more chocolate.

Finally by Sunday night I realized that I should have been taking pictures of my roses since they were so pretty and flowers always make great blogging pictures. I'm glad I took the pictures that evening too, because Monday through Wednesday we were hit with a stifling heat wave that my poor roses just couldn't withstand. The last few roses still look ok, but they're not picture worthy anymore. Sniff. I did want to take a picture of my whole bouquet, but at least I did get around to taking some pictures of my beautiful flowers.

Anyway, I thought that since it was my anniversary I should put up some pictures of our wedding. So, here they are!

Cutting the Cake


And Running Away Together!

If you ask anyone who was there that day, they'll tell you it was over 100 degrees that summer morning and the numbers keep going up (I think the last I heard was a 'sweltering 110'). I don't remember it being that hot out, but that's probably what it felt like to everyone all dressed up so nice. I couldn't find anything that topped 92 that day in terms of historical archives.

It's hard to believe that four years have gone by since I married my knight. But somehow the time has run it's course and each morning I'm greeted with two -soon to be three- little faces that never fail to remind me of my best friend. Speaking of those little people.... we're going to have to go get them from Grandpa and Grandma's house pretty soon. Our evening alone is fast running to a close, but a barbecue steak dinner in peace and quiet was definitely a worthy way to spend one's anniversary!


  1. I remember the day quite well!!! Happy anniversary to you both!

  2. Happy Anniversary ... I kept forgetting it was your special day.

  3. I'm sure it was at least 110 degrees that day! :)

  4. The heat was just one more good reason to bring out the squirt guns! That remains the best groomsmen stunt I've seen :-)

    It was a beautiful day-- and continues to be-- seeing how you and Sir have been brought together in the Lord, preserved and used by Him! Many happy wishes to you!

  5. Congratulations on four years! I just read this today, so I hope you will forgive me for not mentioning anything to you or Sir today. :)

  6. Happy Belated Anniversary!

  7. happy anniversary! i'm pretty sure it was more like 120 that day... haha i almost died :)
