Two years

Monday was our second wedding anniversary. Adam and I have been married for two full years now. People kept telling us that the first few years would be the hardest, but that hasn't been our experience. If these are the difficult years then we have quite a future ahead of us. Of course, I'm not assuming that it won't get hard ahead or that we won't face trials. I know we will - we haven't had children yet! I'm just thankful for the marriage we've had so far and how much more we will grow in the future.

We were able to spend that day surrounded by our families, and we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than with the people that showed us what marriage was truly about. Both Adam and I were blessed with generations of strong marriages. We had not only our parents to look to as examples, but also our grandparents. Without even realizing it at the time, they displayed dedication, perseverance, and genuine care and love. They taught us what it meant to be selfless and to truly put another person before ourselves. Now of course their marriages weren't perfect, but they kept trying. They made mistakes and corrected them. All in all, we had amazing models of marital faithfulness and love to follow, and for that I am sincerely grateful. I fully believe that it has shaped our marriage and given us a very strong foundation to build upon.

So, thank you! Thank you to our parents and grandparents for  giving us such a great example to follow. Hopefully we've learned from your mistakes, because I know we will have plenty of our own :)  We love you and look forward to seeing you all again soon!

...and sadly I did not get any pictures to document our second anniversary. I know, I'm terrible, but we were just so busy soaking up time with our families and friends back in WV that I just didn't think about it. I guess there is always next year!
