Another year down....many more to come

Three years. Wow. I feel like I've been married to Caleb forever. It's hard to remember what life was like before him. At the same time, I feel like we just started, which is a slightly more accurate feeling since I've actually spent most of my life without him. 

I knew I would marry him as soon as we started dating. There was just something different about him than anyone other boy I knew or had known.

We've packed a lot in in three years.

We've lived in four apartments, lost, quit, or started, eight jobs, gotten one master's degree, had two kids, traveled to seven states, celebrated holidays and weddings, said good-bye to close family and friends, meet new friends, and started new ministries at our church. We said "I do," and started running full speed.

Last weekend Caleb and I dropped the kids off in Bakersfield and drove up the coast for our anniversary. It was a wonderful three days to slow down and reconnect with each other. It was a time to reflect on where we've been and where we want to go. And driving home I realized again how much I love him.

God's blessed us with an incredible love for each other.

Our love is real. Our love is ours. Our love is deep. Our love is centered around one so much greater than the two of us...our Savior. Our love is faithful. Our love is fun. Our love is hard. Our love is growing. Our love is work. Our love is passionate. Our love is pure. Our love is forgiving. Our love is patient. Our love is hopeful. Our love is unending.

Happy anniversary Caleb, I love you.

Happy Anniversary Sweet girl! I can't believe you're celebrating your 3 year! So are we (in December)...and apparently every one else in the world! I also can't believe you have two kids! :) I totally agree, it seems like forever, yet not that long at all! Here's to 100 more!
