11 years

On June 26th, Mark and I celebrated 11 years of marriage. What?? I'm sure you're all thinking I look far too young to be married for 11 years, and I agree :-). And then I look in the mirror and see age spots and wrinkles and think that year 34 has done a a number on my face. Honestly, every year together is something to be celebrated, so we did. We went to dinner and a movie and had the perfect end to a rather hectic week.

Mark Wood,

I am so proud an honored to be your wife. Thank you for loving me when I'm not lovable and for always cutting the kids fingernails and feeding them breakfast. Thank you for letting me wake up slowly and for asking if you can pick up dinner at least twice a week---hallelujah! You are such a hard worker and I appreciate all you do so that I can stay home and raise our children. We are a great team and I still think you are the funniest person I know. Thanks for making me and the kids laugh and for going to the lake even though you don't like it :-). I cannot believe that it's been 11 years but I also don't really remember life without you as my partner. I love you and I am constantly surprised and amazed at our life together. Could you have imagined living in Waco raising two amazing kids 11 years ago...wow. Thank you Lord for your direction and Grace!

Happy late anniversary! XOXOXO
