4 Years

Last Wednesday Bob and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary. That sounds like such a long time to me!!! Of course I realize that it’s just the tip of the iceberg for the amount of time we will eventually be married (my mom-in-law referred to us as “newlyweds” lol, thought we’d passed that mark already!!! But I guess to someone who’s been married 25+ years we would still qualify) but it still feels like an accomplishment! Especially considering the day and age we live in. It is absolutely unbelievable and shockingly sad to me that at 23 years of age, I already have 5 friends, all around my age, who are already divorced. 🙁 How on earth is that possible??!! I’m so thankful to have been raised in a Christian home where I was taught the true meaning of love and that for better or worse means just that. It doesn’t mean “for better….and definitely not worse because boy if it gets bad I’m outta here buddy!!!!” Of course, I know that for several of my friends they were put in situations that they felt divorce was the only option for the safety of them and their children. How incredibly sad! I’m so very thankful for my Christian husband who loves me and Amber with his whole heart and is willing to serve his country and provide for us. He brought me roses, a sweet card, and Hershey’s kisses in a heart shaped bowl for a gift–such a smart, sweet hubby!!! Then to celebrate we went on a date last night–first one since Amber was born! It was long overdue and I think we both had a wonderful time. We saw a movie, which I enjoyed more than Bob but I think it was because he was too tired to follow the crazy plot line from having woken up at 3 am for work that morning, and then went out to dinner at The Channel Marker. It’s a local seafood place that’s a little on the “ritzier” side. Both of our dinners were delicious and it was so nice to have a conversation with my sweetie without a 1 year old yelling the entire time because she wasn’t the center of attention! 🙂 We’re so thankful to our wonderful friends Nate and Lara for babysitting for us so we could have such a great night!

So as you can tell, we had a wonderful anniversary this year, and I’m looking forward to at least 50 more : )

All dressed up for our date!!!
