Happy Anniversary, Baby!

I've got you on my mi-hind.

Seven years! Wow! Jason and I were counting up how much has gone on these past 7 years: 2 kids, 2 jobs (each), 2 homes = 2mortgages, 4 cars, etc. A lot. Here is my favorite picture from our wedding. I'm not even sure who took it- someone sent it to me in the mail, but I think it captures my complete adoration for my sweet husband. He is truly one of the best people I know, in general and I'm so proud that I'm married to him! He's honest (almost to a fault, as in, "yes, you might want to wear different pants"), dependable (voted Most Dependable in high school) and loyal. He is a man of God and the spiritual leader in our home. I am so thankful every day that we are married and I don't know how I made such a wise decision at the ripe old age of 19 when I decided that I would marry him. I called my mom at 6:00 am and told her that I'd found the man I was going to marry. I had been up all night and couldn't sleep. She asked me how long we'd been dating and I dreamily answered, "3 days". Ahhh. It was so sappy. My mom suggested that I should probably get to know him a little better. We did date for 3 years after that, but I have to say that I called it pretty early on.

Jason gets me. I am SURE that is a very hard thing, but I think that is why we click and get along so well. And I get him, too. We make a good team and I'm so thankful that God has blessed our marriage and has blessed us with each other.

Here is my favorite professional picture. We had all our pictures taken before the wedding (I highly recommend) out at Maria's Vineyard in Dothan. This was out in the actual vineyard and completely unplanned. Thank you bridesmaids! The little girls in the picture are on their way to college this year. Scary, huh?

What a wonderful day. I loved every bit of it.

I love you, Jas! Happy 7th Anniversary!

Awwwww. Preciousness. Beautiful pictures- I love the bridesmaids one- I hadn't ever seen it. You guys are such a beautiful, amazing couple. We went to Wings with my in-laws this weekend and played trivia and I thought about us double dating in college and playing trivia at Buffalos. We had so much fun our senior year!

You make my day!
I'd hug you, but this screen makes it a little awkward.
