7 years

Yesterday was mine and Caleb's 7 year wedding anniversary.  Honestly, year six has been the worse, most challenging year for us so far even counting the year of deployment.  With family issues, a new baby, a move, no consistent income, and him being in school, life has not been ideal to say the least.  However, I am encouraged and proud to say that I love this man and am so glad that it is him that is by my side everyday going through the storm with me and I'm looking forward to basking in the sun together at the end of this (what sometimes seems) never ending tunnel we have been doomed to.

With negativity aside, we started our seventh year of marriage off right with some quality kid free time, a few glasses of wine, and lots of laughs. 

And I thought I loved you then...

  1. It's amazing how those days, months, or even years in marriage, where you feel like you just can't catch a break, bring you so much closer with each other and the Lord. For us, that was last year, 2013. We were under a lot of stress and it just felt like we were drowning. Everytime we were able to catch our breath, another wave of hard times would hit us. But through it all, it was like we clung to each other even harder to get through it and now I can truly see the benefits of getting through those hard times for us. Our relationship with God and with each other is so much stronger than it ever has been. We are so grateful for where our marriage is now because of what we had to go through last year: selling our old house, building a new house, Jason's dad getting diagnosed with cancer, moving from rental house to rental house, frustrations at work, etc. We would take one step forward and be knocked back 2 steps backwards. So hang in there because these hard times won't last forever. The struggles will truly make your marriage stronger! :)
