9 Years as a Mrs.

9 years ago today, I became a Mrs.

I said it then, and I will say it now. Marrying Drew was the best decision I have ever made.

The past 9 years have been: fun, happy, hard, filled with laughter (and tears), filled with the highest of highs and some of the lowest of lows. The great thing about marriage is not that it is always great, but that you are able to walk through life with someone that will (hopefully) point you to the One who IS always Great. Drew does that for me. He is my sandpaper. Sometimes I don't like it, because let's face it, sanding off the rough edges sometimes sucks. BUT... he is patient with my weird quirks. He loves me for who I am. He completes me in ways I didn't even know I needed to be completed. He points me to Jesus and makes me want to be a better person. And he is even a better dad to our kids that I ever thought he'd be. My life is richer because I became his Mrs.

Happy Anniversary, Drew! I'm so glad I get to be your wife. Thanks for loving me well. I love you, and look forward to many more anniversaries in the future :)

PS- I just have to laugh at the difference in the two pictures. Clearly parenting has done a number on us-- check out the bags under our eyes. haha!
