2 YEARS OF MARRIAGE

Today is a special day!! Jon and I are celebrating two wonderful years of marriage. :) We have loved being married, learning new things about each other, and challenging ourselves to grow individually and as a unit. One of my favorite things about our relationship is the fact that we truly love to support each other in our personal passions. We love learning to be a great team by figuring out our strengths and weaknesses. We love knowing that together we can work through any trial. In so many ways, we've grown up together, and it's such a joy to see where we are now and how we've grown in love towards each other. I'm looking forward to building a wonderful third year of marriage and seeing what's in store for the future. :)


Our hearts are going to continue learning to love and serve each other by striving to be great spouses for one another. Our goal is to always "work" on our marriage, seek growth, and to never be content with being stagnate.
