My heart is full.

This past weekend officially marked Summer coming to the Midwest.

BBQ, time with friends on the lake, enjoying the sunshine. Yes! Memorial Day Weekend had arrived.

And in our little family, that also means something else.

Something special.

This weekend marked two years for us!

Two years as one flesh. Two years of learning what it means to humble yourself, to put someone else's needs before your own.

Two years of loving someone more with each dish washed together, with each decision made together and with each prayer spoken over each other.

Last night as we went to bed, we shared some laughs as we reminisced over what we were doing at that time, two years ago -- prepping the night before the "big day."

This of course sparked memories further down memory lane for me...And that path took me to here. (If you dont mind, I'd love to share a bit of my heart with you today):

The first time I saw him...He was dressed like this:

No. I had not met him before.

Yes. I did take a picture of him :)

I knew instantly he had a heart for others if he would dress up like an SNL Spartan to raise money for a room full of high school kids :)

And that stole my heart.

He makes me laugh...

We are learning every day what this marriage thing is all about.

What it means to be a team.

Some days...its really, really hard.

Most days...I am more content and happy than I ever dreamed I would be.

I am humbled constantly in the ways he serves me as my husband.

The way he loves and supports me.

The way he puts up with my insane ideas and helps me {literally} build my dreams.

The heart he has to serve the Lord and those around him.

God designed marriage to be such a beautiful thing...

And Im personally learning daily how true that is.
