Happy Anniversary, Hubs!

Today Daniel and I have been married for TWO YEARS.

All day long, I've been wondering what I was doing exactly at this moment two years ago.
At this current moment, I was getting ready with five of the best women I know,
I was wondering what Daniel was up to,
I was sweating buckets,
I was laughing so hard at my soon-to-be sister-in-law,
and, of course, I was downing an entire box of Wheat Thins.

On August 19, 2011
Daniel made a ton of promises before me, our family & friends, and God.
He promised to protect me.
He promised to make decisions with me.
He promised to love me without condition.
He promised to forgive me.

If my memory serves me correctly, I made some similar promises as well.

Today, on August 19, 2013
it is so very clear that he meant those promises.
He protects.
He engages.
He loves me on my worst days.
He forgives.
Oh my, how he forgives.

While he may be holding my train in the above picture,
the truth is, he is conducting the train in our marriage.
Daniel provides direction for us
and encourages me to dream as big as big can be.
He works hard,
makes everyone smile,
and knows everything.

He's my hero.
I kind of want to be him when I grow up.

Hey Dan,
Happy Anniversary.
I hope to enjoy this long, crazy train ride
for the rest of our life together.

Chugga, chugga.


  1. Great post. Happy anniversary! :)

  2. oh my, this post made me kind of tear up!
    I'm getting married in exactly 52 days to the man of my dreams but at 2 month-mark, i won't lie that things still make me anxious, so many unknowns and where will we be in 5 years, blah blah blah.
    Reading about you and Daniel is so great and makes things more realistic, ie. i'm not the only one out there fighting with my inner-Debra. Thank you for sharing it all with us.
    This 2-year post is lovely and adorable, congrats on your love and relationship, keep it up ;)
    Hope you have a great anniversary and many more!
    I look forward to mine when it finally gets here.
