9 years!

On April 7, 2001, I married my best friend.

3288 days, 3 children, 8 jobs, 5 homes, 2 towns....it has been a wonderful 9 years of marriage.

When I met Jeff, I was 16 years old. I thought he was so cute and so funny. I had no idea of the depth of character he possessed, and what an incredible husband and father he would become. Everyday I am blessed beyond words to married to a man who loves God, serves us faithfully, puts us before himself, leads gently, and loves unconditionally. Almost 15 years later, he still makes me laugh (although there are definitely some jokes I've heard before that get an eye roll rather than a chuckle :). When I step back and really look at my life... I am so lucky.

Jeffrey Owen- I love you more today than 9 years ago. I can't wait to see where this life takes us. I think we'll look pretty cute with a headful of gray hair and lots of grandkids. I look forward to still holding hands when they are all wrinkled up. And I promise to love you regardless of what happens in the meantime.
