8 Year Anniversary

Today, my husband and I celebrate 8 years of marriage!  In some ways I feel like it has been much longer, but in other ways, I can't believe it has already been 8 years!  I look in the mirror and think I still look young most of the time, but after putting these two pictures together, I see how much my husband and I have changed!

This is actually something I am very thankful for.  No, I am not extremely excited about the crow's feet, extra fat, stretch marks, and all the other physical things that come with getting older and being a mom.  However, I am very blessed to be married to a godly, fun, patient, and loving man, to have beautiful sweet boys, and to be surrounded and challenged by friends who are determined to understand what the bible says about our role as a wife.

I am not the same girl who walked down the aisle eight years ago, and I only hope after eight more years, I will not be the woman I am today.  I am looking forward to growing with my man.

Here are a few books/blogs I have read that have challenged me as a wife.
