how sweet it is

 May 28, 2005

Yesterday was our six year anniversary. No longer newlyweds, but it still feels like the years are flying up faster and faster. So many memories, so many changes. I still remember sitting in the upstairs bedroom of the historic B&B on our wedding day waiting to pray with Brian before the ceremony. Praying about what our life would be like together, the building of a home and a family together, holding hands with our eyes closed.

I do not think I could ever have imagined how joyful our life would be. The way we laugh and fun with each other. The dancing that still happens spontaneously in our kitchen while cooking dinner. The way Brian still kisses me goodbye before we head out the door our separate ways in the morning. The way he loves Lila and I unconditionally.

We have the best friends that constantly challenge us, laugh with us and give out hugs and prayers in tough times. We have built a community of people who strive to keep each other real and support each other in all walks of our lives. I am so blessed by the people we have in our lives. 

Our families take such good care of us and Lila. They both are there for us in times when we are a little more...high maintenance. We love having both of our parents and my sister and her husband within 3 hours of us, always up for Lila babysitting, home repair projects and impromptu family dinners. 

Here's to sixty more years sweetie! 
Thanks for always being my best friend.

You were better to me than I was to myself
For me there's you and there ain't nobody else
I want to stop and thank you baby
I just want to stop and thank you baby
How sweet it is to be loved by you
