Today is our 4th anniversary! or anniver-shur-y. How do you say it? I say it without a"sh."

I used to say the word "nursery" like "nurshurey" until Grant taught me the right way. He has probably taught me thousands of things since I've known him. I'm thankful to be married to such a brilliant guy! From him I have learned:

1. to keep a car clean
2. how to say less and be okay with it, you don't always need to explain everything
3. to love salt and vinegar chips and cilantro
4. not to pick the dandelions when they're at the Beauty and the Beast point (the fuzzy stage)
5. about X-men, Mike Tyson, and the Kentucky Derby
6. how to use Photoshop, knit, and pay off a loan
7. how to drive and just enjoy the quiet
8. not to drink tap water
9. how to invest in the stock market
10. to do a not fun job and make it fun
11. how to be more patient and less defensive
12. not to gossip
13. not to worry that people are gossiping about me
14. that a good lawn and an early bedtime are things to strive for
15. how to care about cool, meaningful things
16. how to not care about petty things
17. how to fall asleep without music
18. to buy something nice the first time, so you don't have to replace it next year
19. to pray specifically
20. the difference between real peanut butter and fake peanut butter
21. the difference between the NFL and college football
22. the importance of not tucking in bed sheets at the bottom of the bed
23. the importance of a solid white t-shirt
24. how to hunt gophers and drive a jet ski
25. how to live without ceiling fans, a garbage disposal, stoplights, Target, pop, or a 2nd car (some of those I don't even miss)

and so much more! Tons of things I can't even write down. I have changed so much being Grant's wife. I'm grateful to him for helping me grow, protecting me, loving me, leading me. Thank you to my amazing husband for an excellent 4 years of life together.

Such a sweet post. It's such a blessing to have a husband who teaches you--mine's like that, too. Happy anniversary!

Happy Anniversary!

And the sheets! I've noticed that whenever the bed is freshly made that my feet are pulled down by the tension of the sheet. I need to try that out.

"how to fall asleep without music" made me smile. I used to watch tv every night as I drifted off to sleep, but that all changed the day my husband and I moved in together. :)

Happy Anniversary! :) We just celebrated our 4th a couple weeks ago!

Happy Anniversary! I have to admit, I was completely confused by your title being 'anniver-shur-y'. With my British accent it sounds very odd adding 'sh' to anniversary and nursery! I had to chuckle at myself as I said the words out loud with a puzzled look on my face. The wonder of accents, hey? : )

Laura Railing said...

Happy anniversary you guys!!!!! (I say anni-verse-ary :) Whichever case, enjoy!!!)

Hannah said...

Happy Anniversary Summer and Grant. You are such an encouraging couple to look up to =)

Nessa Bixler said...

Yeah for you guys!!

Chiara said...

I'm late, but I hope you had a wonderful wedding anniversary! One thing I am curious about... why not drink tap water?

Chrystina said...

That's an incredible list, I hope one day somebody will teach me all those things as well :)

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.
