On Tuesday Isaac and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary. I still can’t believe that it’s been two years… On one hand I feel like time has flown by, but on the other, I can barely remember what life was like before. Marriage has been both the most rewarding and most difficult thing I’ve ever done, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I love that I get to live life with my best friend, laugh with him, share my struggles with him, and build a future with him by my side. The Lord has taught me so much about what it means to be a servant, the importance of forgiveness and grace, and that marriage is so much more than a feeling. It’s a commitment, a daily decision to put the other person first, and, although imperfect, a representation of Christ and the Church.
Our anniversary this year was low-key, with a fancy steak dinner and dancing, and it was such a fun evening! We also had our pictures taken by the talented Kelli Holder, who I actually got to work with a few weeks ago at my brother’s wedding. As a photographer, I know the value and importance of pictures, and I am so happy we were able to have our pictures taken to remember our second year of marriage. I am beyond thankful for Kelli, her sweet spirit, crazy photography skills, and her friendship!
On our way to our anniversary dinner, Isaac and I began reminiscing about the past year of marriage. The more we talked about it, the more we realized how crazy a year it’s been! And today I’m sharing our top ten memories from Year 2.
Our Favorite Memories!
1. Going on our first overseas mission trip together to Romania.
