5 years

Saturday was Garrett's and my 5th wedding anniversary. I am amazed at how quickly it has gone by- just like everything else, I suppose. We have gone through so much during these past 5 years and have changed so much as people.
I remember back to 5 years ago on our wedding day and just feeling so swept up in the feeling of love- the unknown- our future. I felt like we could conquer the world. I had never been in love like that before and even though I was only 18 years old- fresh out of high school- I knew that this love was the real thing.
5 years isn't a long time, but it is something. In these 5 years we have moved from place to place, from college to college, and learned a lot of life lessons. We have grown as people, grown together, but most importantly grown more and more in love with Christ. We have had ups, downs, and in-betweens. We have had a baby...a piece of our hearts outside of our chests living and breathing. We have another baby on the way. We are more in love now than ever before and I thank God that 5 years ago- yes at the age of 18- I said 'I do' to the man of my dreams.
Happy Anniversary, Garrett, I love you more than words can say.
