August 7, 2004

Eight years!  I think I say it at least 50 times a day but WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE?! 

Brice and I said "I do" eight years ago on August 7, 2004.  In some ways it seems like just yesterday and in other ways it seems like a million years ago.  I do have a hard time remembering my life without him.  We have been through so much together and have both grown and matured more than I even thought we needed to! :) 

We went from being two to five in just 7 1/2 years!!  Now our life pretty much revolves around our kiddos but we still have fun and have so much to talk about. 

It hasn't been easy!  Marriage is work and commitment.  Aside from parenting, it is the hardest thing I have ever done....be a wife.  Being a good godly wife requires selflessness...something that I struggle with on occasion. 

We are complete opposites but that is why we work.  I love the story of how we met, how we came to be and where we are today.  God is writing this story and I am so excited to see what is in the next chapters. 

Brice, I know you don't get on facebook and you may not read this blog very often, but I love you.  You absolutely are the smartest person I have ever met, you are godly, encouraging, and loving...in your own little way.  It took me a long time to realize that you don't show those things in the way that I thought you should but that is just how you are.  You keep me on my toes guessing because you are a man of few words...unless you are talking about Star Wars (or Trek), the Bible, Disney, or how to run the soundboard!  :)  These past eight years have definitely been an adventure!  I love, more than anything, watching you as a daddy to our 3 precious girls.  They adore you and it thrills my soul!  I love you!
