Happy Anniversary to US!

It's crazy to think that 4 years ago today, Todd and I got married!! In a small chapel in Linville, NC, 21 days after our "official engagement", with only our very immediate family (parents, siblings, nephews and grand-parents) present, we made our commitment to each other "for better or for worse". We also knew in 2 weeks Todd would be deploying to Iraq. I will forever be grateful for our friends, Natalie and Dan Watson, who were able to be there to capture this day for us always.

I know in the grand scheme of things, 4 years isn't all that much (I look forward to 10, 20, 30+!), but I can't help think about how quickly they've gone by!! What an amazing relationship and friendship I have with Todd. He truly is my joy. He just gets me. Without even having to say a word, Todd can just put a hand on me and instantly everything feels better.

God has given me so much to be thankful for in Todd. I love the life we have together and look forward to the future God has in store for us too. Yes, one day, I hope to become a parent with him. We're hopefully going to own our first home together very soon! And we're convinced retirement is going to be awesome!

You Are My Joy by Snow Patrol became one of our favorites right as he was deploying. To this day it remains one of those emotional favorites between the two of us. It just seems to say it all so easily.... I even had "You are my joy" engraved on the inside of his wedding band. :) Here's the cute video you can watch while you're at work today. I'll just go about my day taking care of patients knowing that I have the world's most patient, kind and honest man as my husband. I also know that I am loved just as much in return....

And my cup runneth over. I love you Todd. You are my Joy -- Happy Anniversary!  :) xoxo
