Happy anniversary, Grant!

Remember when you first told me you loved me the night before senior high camp? That was the best. I knew there was no going back from that point. And look at us now... today I've been your wife for 3 whole years and I'm sitting here with your baby inside me. That is the best. 

Thank you for marrying me and being faithful every day to the vows you made to me. Being married to you has been... for lack of a better word, easy. It's been the most natural thing in the world. The two of us became one and nothing fell out of place. God is so good. I remember when we had been married 5 days and I already felt like it was just as possible that we'd been married 5 years. It was just right. What a gift you are to me, and I know it's only by God's grace that I enjoy you every day. 

You are to me
 all grace and no anger.
all courtesy and no rudeness.
all blessing and no burden.
all adorable and no annoyance.
all truth and no falsehood.
all perfect and no shortcomings.
all friend and never foe.
all good and no harm. 

and I'm so thankful the Lord made me for you.
I'm thankful He designed marriage to be just what it is.
I love being one with you. 
Ephesians 5:31 ...and the two shall become one flesh.

It just flies by, doesn't it? Congratulations on 3 years!!! What wonderful time together though! Treasure the moments! You might want to just jot down memories you guys have already. "Remember the time we... " because after the baby comes your memory decides to take a hiatus ;-)

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
