Today marks our fourth year of being married!! Kind of crazy that we've been married this long now- it hasn't seemed that long ago when we were only newlyweds living in a tiny apartment together! It's interesting to me how much our relationship changes each year, and how despite the ups and downs of life, how that reminds me of how much I love and need my husband. I love Jared and have a greater appreciation for him now that I think I did four years ago. I recently stumbled across a quote that went , "A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person" (Mignon MeLaughlin). I love that quote, and think it pretty much describes marriage to a T.
I love the man I'm with, and love that he loves me with all the quirky, dumb, foolish, and weird qualities I smother him with daily. I love that we've done lots of fun trips, moved a lot, and had our share of problems that helped us to grow closer as a team. I love that I married my best friend. I love that I still get butterflies when he holds my hand. I love that my husband is a "natural" dad, and instinctively knows how to be a great father. I love that I can honestly say that these past 4 years have been the best of my life and I hope that many more follow. I love you Jared!
These are some of the fun/interesting things we've done being married for 4 years that I am proud of:
~Moved 4 times
~Had 2 kids
~Bought a house
~Bought a car together
~Flew to Florida twice
~Been to Disneyland as a family....repetitively
~Done yard work together
~Planted a garden together
~Been on a road trip
Love you Jared! Happy Anniversary!
