To My Husband...

6 years ago today Brandon and I stood at an alter at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel on the island of Oahu, Hawaii and said "I do."

We never could have imagined what those words and that day would be the beginning of. We've grown together, been stretched together, learned, laughed, cried, and healed together. But most of all, we've created a beautiful life together. One filled with amazing love and I could not ask for me.

I can still remember the first time I saw him. He was making a certain face that I now know well and see our son make. I will never forget that day. God planned it from the beginning. Though our paths were going in two completely different directions, he brought them together and I fell head over heels IN LOVE. Not just in the man he was, but the God I saw in Him.

I am so thankful to be so loved and to love so much. To watch him be an amazing daddy to our kids, a loving son, caring brother and selfless person.

I am challenged to love more, seek more, and do more.

It has been my greatest reward to be the mother of his honor and a privilege. Though it can be exhausting at times and challenging at others, it is always a reward...a title I hold dear and with great pride.

My sweet husband, I love you beyond what mere words could say. I cherish you more than I could ever show you. I honor and respect you. You are everything I wanted and everything I didn't know I needed. Thank you for showing me how much God loves me by just by loving me each day. Thank you for your patience, love, strength, compassion, and calm. You are my perfect balance.

Today, as we look back on 6 years of marriage, I am so thankful. For you, for our life, for the lessons we've learned together, places we've gone and for the opportunity to share many more of those with you.

I can not wait to see you hold our new little girl in your arms. It is the greatest gift you could ever give see your love as you look at her for the first time. I will cherish it forever.

Today and every day, I am thankful for my husband.
Happy Anniversary My Love! You still give me butterflies!
