Aiming for progress, not perfection.

"...being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
Philippians 1:6

i remember: 3 whole years.

i remember the first day i met him. i remember the first time we talked on the phone. i remember the way his face looked in the campfire light on that fall retreat. i remember the way it felt when his hand touched my back on our first date. i remember the way it felt the first time we kissed. i remember. i remember asking what he saw when he looked in my eyes, and i remember when he said, "christmas mornings." i remember when he said i love you. i remember when he gave me the yellow ring. i remember knowing this was forever. i remember the proposal. i remember the planning. i remember the anticipation. i remember the day. i remember being so calm. i remember turning the corner to see him waiting for me at the altar. i remember his eyes. i remember his smile. i remember the "i do's" and the vows. i remember becoming his wife. i remember the celebration. i remember getting into his daddy's white pickup truck.

i remember knowing, in that instant, that my life would never be the same.

today, landon and i have been married for three years. we celebrated at home tonight. i figured we go out to eat a lot. eating in is even more special. nothing fancy. heartfelt cards and quality time. it was perfect.

landon, i'm out of words to describe how i feel about you. it's overwhelming. i love growing with you, learning with you, discovering with you. you are my hero. you have made me a better person. i'm more excited about the rest of our lives than you will ever know. i love you so much.

happy anniversary.
