5 years

To my sweet Rob,

Tomorrow is our 5 year anniversary.

At this time, 5 years ago, we didn't yet know about Hurricane Tammy and how she would crash our wedding. We didn't know how it would rain through our entire honeymoon, or how our first fight would be over a tied game of Scrabble.

We didn't know that in our first 5 years together we would have to bury a parent, give birth to 2 beautiful children, live in 3 different homes, have 5 different cars, and visit 8 different countries (soon to be 9.)

We didn't know all of each other's struggles and challenges, but our relationship has grown, our trust has deepened, and our love has been strengthened by sharing their weight and supporting one another. You know I like to plan, and I struggle with the unexpected, but I cannot deny that God has a bigger plan for us than we have for ourselves.

I am thankful for every day that I get to spend with my best friend. I don't know what the future holds for us, but I do know that we will walk through it together.

I love you with all of my heart. :)
