5 years ago today my daddy walked me down the aisle to the most incredible man.  

We said, "I do." 

And the last 5 years have been the hardest, most amazing years of my life.    
Matthew--I never knew how much my life would change for the better.  You inspire me, push me, annoy me & love me better than anyone.  I'm so thankful that I get to do life with you.  

This year our anniversary is very bittersweet.  June 27, 1959 another couple was married, my grandparents.  Their love for one another was like none I had ever seen.  Growing up I admired them & knew one day I would find someone to love like they love.  We were so honored that they allowed us to marry on their 50th wedding anniversary.  

And I loved this moment in our wedding.  They stood with us & prayed over our marriage. 

And we celebrated them at the reception.  

This past February, my Paw Paw went home to be with the Lord. It's my Maw Maw's first year without him in 55 years.  We will continue to celebrate their love & marriage for years to come.  I only hope & pray that we are the kind of example of love & marriage that they were to me for our children & grandchildren.  

I know my Maw Maw can't wait to stroll over heaven with Paw Paw one day.  What an incredible legacy you have left us.

Remember this post?  The one where I dreamed. Longed for the country?  It's funny how things work out.  Actually it's amazing how God hears our prayers, knows our heart & in His timing provides us with what we need.

 I'm so excited to say that we've bought a the country!!!

5 acres, tucked back in a small little neighborhood.  It's more than I ever could have imagined.  And the best part----we are doing some renovations on it.  I'm not an interior designer, but I have a heart for it.  I really wished A&M had a degree option for interior design, but that wasn't the case.  So I'm getting to do what I love to do & design this house & make it our home. Sigh!

We are smack in the middle of renovations & life is insane to say the least, but we are thankful.  So very thankful for this next journey in our new home.
