Ten Years

Scott and I are celebrating our 10th year of marriage today. I can't believe it's been 10 years. It feels like a lifetime and also like we got married yesterday all at the same time. Whether it feels like yesterday or a lifetime, I do know one thing: These last 10 years have been more than I even dreamed they would be.
I'm happy to say that Scott and I have a really good marriage. He's my best friend and my soul mate. I absolutely cannot imagine doing life without him. The longer we're married, the easier and more harmonious our life seems to be. Our first couple of years weren't our easiest. We had to learn how to navigate through life together. We did things differently and it sometimes caused friction. We were also so much younger. Kids have definitely matured us! Our last 5 or 6 years of marriage have been my favorite. I definitely don't think it's a coincidence that, that is because we've made a few people during that span. Raising these little boys together, having an awesome teammate, and seeing what a wonderful father Scott is has made me fall in love with him ten times over. He never leaves me hanging when it comes to the boys or household duties. He does just as much around here as I do and I'm so thankful to him for that.
Scott has always been so good to me. It would take me forever to list all the reasons why. I just feel like a lucky girl that God paired us together. When I was in Jr High, I started praying for my future husband. Daily. I would pray big things like that he would love the Lord and stand firm in his faith and I prayed little things like that he would have a good day at school or do well on a test. I never missed a day of praying for him, for years and years and years. It's probably the one thing I've prayed the most fervently for in my life. I always joke with Scott and tell him he's so well rounded and smart because of all that praying I did for him. Ha!! All joking aside, there's no doubt that the Lord heard my prayers and He gave me an amazing man to spend my life with. My husband is everything I ever dreamed of having and more!
When we were on our honeymoon, Scott and I talked about our 10th anniversary. We wondered where we would be in life. How many kids we would have and where we would live. We always said we would without a doubt be on a big vacation for our 10th anniversary. Either back at the resort where we honeymooned or maybe traveling across Europe. Whatever it was, it was going to be fantastic! We kept that dream up until about June when we discovered I would be VERY pregnant with our 3rd baby therefore we would end up being home instead of on a fancy vacation. Oh well! Being home and anxiously awaiting the arrival of our baby sounds pretty fabulous too. No matter where we are or what we're doing, as long as we're together nothing else matters. Happy anniversary Scott! Thank you for keeping your promise to me when you asked me to marry you that you would do everything in your power to always make me happy. I love being your wife.
