I am a wife to an engineer who wishes he was a carpenter and a mother to three children. I love things like little girls in pink dresses with lots of tulle, Jesus because He loved me first, little boys in baseball caps, scripture verses that I am pretty sure were written just for me, a cup of coffee with hazelnut creamer, my satisfied soul during worship at our church, watching my husband draw out something really cool that he will soon build for me, a newly renovated room, candles, buying discounted furniture for rooms that only exist in my head, my cell phone, Aaron Shust music, Jimmy Buffett music (without the occasional bad word), and the movie You've Got Mail.
We celebrated 25 years of marriage with my mom and step dad over the weekend. I still remember their wedding day. They were young and in love and blending two families together, two families with small children...few things in life are as daunting. But here they are 25 years later still very much in love with one another, and here all of us are 25 years later having been very blessed by their marriage. These two have loved one another (and all of their children) well over the years. The world could use a few more parents like them. Happy anniversary you two! We adore you more than words!
