5 Years Of Hunkalicious....


I know, I know....get a room.

Eight years ago I began dating you.  I'm not sure how you convinced me that I should go on a date with you.  Maybe it was that pimped out Ford Ranger with the custom blue velvet interior that made me swoon.  Or maybe it was the bleached blonde head of yours.  Or maybe it was just the fact that you were hot and had a great singing voice.... yup, that was probably it.    ;)   

    Five years ago, tomorrow, I married you.  We've made it through some very very fun times and some incredibly rough times as well.  Through it all, I have fallen more in love with you each day.  Your ability to love others just absolutely amazes me.  Your desire to serve God, even when it isn't easily laid out for you, is incredible.  I'm so thankful to have a best friend who inspires me to show others the love of Christ in every situation.   

In five years we've gone from hiding a ferret in our little Bible college townhouse, to being homeowners with college degrees, two kids, and a Jack Russell Terrier.   With a world of learning and experiences in between, it's been a heck of a ride.  I pray for decades of more memories to make with you, but I thank God for each minute.    

I love you Justin.  Happy Anniversary.

Happy Anniversary!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think it's cool that we've been friends for so long that we've got to watch most of your journey (since you were already dating when I met you). I love you guys so much. I hope tomorrow (today) is absolutely fabulous . . . and look at how much you've accomplished in 5 years. You forgot that you are almost completely debt free, too!!!!!!
