8 years!


As of August 20th, Thomas and I have been married 8 years! It's amazing to think that it was that long ago when we were at Carrigan Farms in Mooresville, NC (loved this place!) with all our family and friends, saying our vows to one another. In the past 8 years we've done more together than some people do in a lifetime. We've lived in 4 countries, in 3 continents, had 4 different jobs, bought a house and had 2 kids. Crazy!

Since it was our anniversary a few weeks ago we talked about it with our language teacher and she wanted to hear what an American wedding was like. I uploaded some pictures so I could show her last week. Here are some of the highlights if you weren't "fortunate" enough to be there in the 108 degree heat. That's right, hottest day of the year. And no one lets us forget it! Guess it was a foreshadowing of what our life together would be like. Hello Middle East!

So, there you have it. 8 years ago, these two became one. Our life is a big adventure and I thank God every day for how he's blessed us in this life together. I can't imagine it any other way. Here's to many more! Love you babe. Oh, and sorry I shoved cake up your nose.
