4 years!

Today is Andrew and I's four year wedding anniversary! I can't believe it has been four years! In ways it seems like we have been married forever and in others it seems like it was just yesterday. I can't imagine my life without this man and I feel so very blessed to be where we are today. It sure has been one crazy adventure, one that I could not imagine without him by my side. 

Together we have survived medical school, residency, new jobs, selling a house, buying a house, moving away from family, struggles with starting a family, training and running a marathon ...I could go on and on.

For you see, each day I love you more. Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.

It's truly been some of the best years of my life and I get emotional just thinking about how great the next 100 years are going to be.  I am still having a hard time grasping the fact that in 3 short months we will be welcoming our little girl into this world!  My, oh my, is our life about to change.  This little girl is truly a miracle from up above and I thank God everyday for this amazing blessing.  I never thought this day would come and now its so close I just can't believe it. 

Something that always stood out to me before Andrew and I got married, was something a dear friend said to me.  She said something like this, "If in 10 years, when you have children, you see Andrew as being their father, someone who is not only a great guy for you, but someone who will also be an amazing dad, then he's the one."  And she was right :)  I can't imagine a better, more perfect, and compatible life partner for me than him, nor do I think anyone else could put up with me quite like he does.  And to say he is going to be a great father is an understatement.  I am so very lucky to be married to someone who I know loves me no matter what and always will.  These four years have been incredible, but I know the best is still yet to come. 

Andrew - Thank you for loving me unconditionally, for scratching my back every single night, for putting up with my stubborness and moodiness, and for being the best husband & very soon to be dad ever!  I love you to the moon and back and am looking forward to many many many more anniversaries to come!
