Four Years

I can't believe it's been FOUR years since we said "I do" (and six years and a day since our 1st date)!!  If I knew then what I know now, well, I still don't really know what I'd say to the 26 year old me actually!  Ha!  It's been a great four years and even though we've had some pretty unexpected and crazy things happen this past year I wouldn't change a thing that was in our control.

Austin and I went out to dinner last night to celebrate, it was YUMMY!  We also exchanged gifts, I got him a crib and he got me a dresser/changing table.  ;)  Ok, so we didn't actually exchange the furniture but since I ordered them this week we decided we'd just count the baby stuff as our anniversary gifts to each other.

Here we are after dinner at Pappadeaux

Four years ago yesterday wasn't a very good day for our little Brody.  His Daddy locked him in the bathroom of the apartment for the entire day/night of our wedding and forgot to leave a light on for him!  Poor B!  He's forgiven his Daddy now though.  He is just the cutest little guy, isn't he?!  :)

This year I know is going to be our best year yet because of this little girl!  We can't wait for her to get here and meet her and love on her. 

I love this anniversary.  I think mainly because our third year of marriage was probably the best as far as learning about each other and ourselves.  Just when you think you know someone, something happens and you learn so much more and that's how 2010 was for both of us.  I learned that we are both stronger than I ever imagined and that without each other what was the hardest year of our lives could have been so much worse but thankfully since we had such great support in each other it just wasn't.  We also found the good in every situation we were handed and helped each other stay positive in some negative times.  We definitely learned what partnership meant in a marriage and I'm so grateful for that because it really is so important. 

Happy four year anniversary Austin!  I love you!
