nine year anniversary











I just spent two hours looking through picture files from the last decade. My heart is full and I am so grateful for the man I married nine years ago today. He is quality. He has taken me on some great adventures and I've taken him on some big ones too. The pictures above are roughly each year. It seems we didn't take any pictures of the two of us together while living in Nebraska, a glaring omission. But other than that, these pictures bring back a whole lot of satisfying memories of nine full and happy years.

I've already written about our love story here and here. And I've written more about our marriage here and here. I guess all I really have to say this time around is that I am so grateful he chose me. And I'm so glad I chose him. Rory is solid. He is quality to the bone and I am proud to be living our lives together.

I love when you write about marriage. When you write about marriage, you talk about the good days and the bad days and make them both seem worth it. So many people out there have a strictly negative view of marriage that sometimes it's easy to lose hope for a good one. It's nice to hear your perspective--that marriage is work but it's worth the work. Thanks for sharing your marriage stories!! Happy anniversary!!

That's a really nice compliment Kristen. Thank you. I do try to bring the whole picture to this little blog and I'm grateful for your kind words. Joyfully, Becca

Happy anniversary, guys! You are definitely two well-matched friends. So glad you found each other; love you both!

AND as a complete non sequitur... I also really want a piece of that chocolate bunny cake. Hmm...
