4th Wedding Anniversary

Wow, where has the time gone?  Brandon, aka Sneakers, and I have been married for FOUR years today!
I can honestly say that I married my best friend.  Brandon and I definitely worked on building a friendship early in our relationship, and I know that's why we're so close today.  He's truly the person that I want to spend the rest of my life with.  He's my everything.

The past four years have been filled with so much happiness, heartache, good times, bad times, and joy.  Through it all I can say that we have found joy in all things and now we truly have our Joy, our darling Elliana Joy.

Everyone tells you that having children changes everything, and our lives are already different now with Ellie.  There are more arguments in tired moments and less time spent together.  I do find myself missing my husband so terribly that it hurts.  But when I see him holding our daughter with so much love in his eyes it warms my heart and makes me fall even more in love with him.

To Brandon:
Happy Anniversary, Sneakers.  My love for you grows as each day passes.  We have been blessed beyond measure and I am so thankful that God gave Elliana to us.  She was the perfect anniversary gift this year.

To Ellie:
I'm so happy that you're with Mommy and Daddy on this anniversary.  The past two anniversaries were so sad for us trying to get pregnant.  You are the only gift that we needed to give each other this year, baby girl.

"I never knew how much I loved your Daddy until I saw how much he loved you."
