3 Year Anniversary

GF81-G-205
In the past three years we have lived in three homes {Stillwater, St. Paul, current}, including crashing at my in-laws for 6 months and purchasing the home we have lived in for the past two years. We have had 6 job changes, at 3 a piece. We no longer have the vehicles we started our marriage with, actually we are still down one as Tony drives a work vehicle. Our pets have decreased in number as well, since the loss of Bridgit last fall. We became an aunt and uncle, in addition to Momma and Daddy. We have welcomed new friends and said goodbye to old. So much has changed in the past 3 years, except for two things: our love and our faith.GF81-F-185
In college my friends wrote me off as a hopeless romantic, but there was nothing blind about my faith in marriage. At the hand of my parents divorce I became so much of a realist that there was no choice but to abandon myself to believe. That belief could never prepare me for the man that God called to be my husband. God's faithfulness abounds and for that reason, I walked to my husband to the tune of Amazing Grace.

Another important song in our ceremony was Third Day's Offering. I knew that this song would prove to be like praying for patience, if you ask for it God will deliver. Our marriage has been a great testament to God's provision and our dedication to our relationship.

I love watching Tony as a father. He has never given me less than his full heart and yet, he still has more for Isaac. It's amazing and beautiful. He is truly my other half and as we wrote in our vows "my truest blessing."

Happy Anniversary! I watched your wedding video! Love it! I especially loved it because you did your own makeup (which I did too! And everyone said I was crazy, but I wanted to look like "me" and not over over made up!) and because you left your veil on for the reception (which I did too, b/c how many times do you get to wear a veil?
