7.12.16 – Our Anniversary

12 Jul

8 years today! I ended last year’s anniversary post with, “I am optimistic that seven will be our best year yet.” And it really has been an amazing year.

First our annual picture…it was a bit too sunny!594A8726

We chose to paint our 8 rainbow themed this year for two reasons.

  1. Hawaii – First, we had an amazing trip to Hawaii. I am so thankful to Kyle for the hard work he put in to complete his ChFC designation and get us there. It really was everything I imagined it would be and more. It would be a dream to go back and explore more islands some day.
  2. Babies – I remember when I was writing last year’s anniversary post I was secretly hoping this would be our year to expand our family. We’ve prayed for these babes for so long, and it’s almost still surreal for me. I would tell you to pinch me if I didn’t have my ever-expanding belly to remind me. We are just so, so thankful and excited!

Needless to say, the good of the past year has definitely outweighed the tough stuff, and we are even more excited for what is to come in year 8. I can’t imagine a better partner to share this life with – the heartbreak, the joy, and everything in between. I’m one lucky girl!

Not sure what we will do for Kyle’s favorite beach tradition when we run out of fingers in a couple of years. 😉
