{12 years}

12 years ago i first met my husband.  12 years seems like such a long time.  and when i look back at those early photos, it really is.

we have had many bumps.  many really, really hard moments.  i will be the first to say that marriage is work.  but it is the best work.  having that person, your person, and getting to spend everyday with them.  it is a blessing.  i am grateful for every single day.  even the hard ones.

i am proud that we can still laugh together.  i am proud of the partner he is to me.  he is my equal.

12 years ago my life changed for the better.  i am so thankful we took a chance on each other.

i am so proud to be his.

{and secretly, i am much more fond of him today than ever before.}
