Five Year Anniversary and pictures of life these days…

~Five Years Ago my beloved and I were married~

Yesterday Samson and I celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary! Life has been exciting with Samson and I look forward to what the future holds for us. I have grown in the past year in my admiration for all the hard work Samson does to provide for us. He coaches many hours in our basement and often has office work to keep up with on top of coaching. He does this all without complaining! He gets up early to get all his work done, but also to make sure he spends time reading God’s Word before he starts his day. He leads our family in devotions and is helping the girls learn a children’s catechism. He doesn’t get tired of me telling him all the funny (or naughty) things the children do while he is coaching and he listens to me late at night when I need to just talk. He has loved me unconditionally and I am so blessed to be his wife!

Today he is coaching in Pittsburgh and had some beautiful flowers delivered… he spoils me!

I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for us as a couple!

And since I haven’t updated my blog in a while I thought I’d throw in a few other pictures…

Four Years Ago Today…

…I married the man who has become my very best friend! He has shown me true love and tenderness. He has cried with me in the tough times and laughed with me in the good. Through his unconditional love for me he has shown me how Christ loves His bride, the church. I am most honored to be married to this wonderful man!

Two Year Anniversary!

Two years ago last Monday (January 9th), my beloved husband and I were wed!

Exchanging our vows

Gazing into each other's eyes...

Over the past two years our love for each other has grown deeper and deeper. We have¬†shared many joys together and a few sorrows. Throughout the daily routine of life we have bonded closer and grown to¬†appreciate each other more. One of our favorite parts about being¬†married is the fact that we can share life’s experiences with each other. On our trips we can see the same beautiful sunset and not wish¬†someone was with us to share the beauty. We can laugh at an inside joke between the two of us, know what the other needs by a glance, and we enjoy holding hands as we go for a walk pushing Fiona in her stroller. We look forward to spending many more years together- “until death¬†do¬†us¬†part”!
