Seven Year Anniversary

Once upon a time, a girl met a boy.
They talked for a few minutes.
She thought he was cute; he thought she was a happy person.
The next day she left for three months.

When she came back to town, this boy really caught her eye! He was kind, adventurous, and generous. When he finally asked her for a date, she was beyond excited. And even though she spent the better part of dinner talking about psychological theory and Sigmund Freud, he liked her anyways. As the story goes, they fell in love and got married.

Our group of friends all went to a carnival, and we just happened to sit by each other on every carnival ride.
We hadn't gone on a date yet, but I was hopeful he secretly liked me back.

He came to meet my family during Christmastime, and we took him to Amarillo's famous Cadillac Ranch.

Seven years later - here we are!

I love reminiscing about our dating days. we had so much fun together! We built model cars, we face painted, we went for long walks, and we played games in the park. Everything about dating Johnny was so easy and comfortable. Everything seemed normal and free. I knew I would marry him after our first date, and that peaceful feeling made dating him blissful. Marriage to this man has been the greatest blessing in my life.

Seven years later, we have almost completely remodeled our house, we have four beautiful kiddos, a gorgeous piece of Texas land we'll build on someday, and lots of hope and dreams.
Life is fun.

Here's to another joyful seven years and onto eternity.
