Ten years ago today we went our first date.

Nine years ago today we were married, surrounded by friends and family.

I have always loved this picture – and we still have fun together.  As we celebrate our anniversary I am reminded of God’s provision and timing – two elements which are typically very different from our expectations.  I am remembering his very romantic proposal, and how he had just enough to buy an engagement ring.  I ended up choosing the first dress I tried on and paid for it with just enough money that my late great-grandmother had left me.  Somehow the over the last nine years the just enough has felt abundantly, more than enough – we are so thankful!  We had a simple wedding but have invested deeply in our marriage.  Of all the things I have done, I am glad for this man the most.  It really is worth the wait for the right guy!

Happy anniversary babe.
