7 Years

Nate and I have been married for 7 years today!
 My biggest fear was that it would rain on my wedding day.
It did!  LOL.  Oh was still a perfect day!
Sometimes when I feel stuck...which I do a helps to look back and see how far we've come.
7 years...
3 children...
1 small townhouse...
1 minivan...
1 garden...
and a lot of memories!

“True love is not so much a matter of romance as it is a matter of anxious concern for the well-being of one's companion.”
Gordon B. Hinckley, Stand a Little Taller 

These were the first 7 years of FOREVER and I can't wait to see what's in store for the rest...

“Love is the very essence of life. It is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Yet it is not found only at the end of the rainbow. Love is at the beginning also, and from it springs the beauty that arched across the sky on a stormy day. Love is the security for which children weep, the yearning of youth, the adhesive that binds marriage, and the lubricant that prevents devastating friction in the home; it is the peace of old age, the sunlight of hope shining through death. How rich are those who enjoy it in their associations with family, friends, and neighbors! Love, like faith, is a gift of God. It is also the most enduring and most powerful virtue.”
Gordon B. Hinckley, Standing for Something: Ten Neglected Virtues That Will Heal Our Hearts and Homes
