2 Years Ago...

        ...today...I married my best friend. I cannot believe it has already been two years, and now we have a baby on the way. My how quickly things change. Honestly, marriage to Matt is fairly easy for me. Yes we fight on occasion, but for the most part we are a team there to make each other's lives easier.  I hope this continues when we have children to care for. Our wedding took a year to plan (while I was in school) and was over in the blink of an eye...I am so glad we captured some of our favorite moments to remember forever.

       I would love to type a big love note for him on here, but our life right now is busy, awesome, and real which makes it hard to reminisce sometimes...I am enjoying the real at the moment. Hopefully we can slow things down soon and take it all in. This October we will have been a pair for 10 years...and it seems better than it did 10 years ago.

       If there is one thing I can say about Matt it is that he is very generous, helpful, and understanding. He is always the friend to help out others...and he has the most patience out of anyone I know. He has a quiet (strong) confidence that I pray our son inherits from him.

First Anniversary- June 2011

       I was really hoping to get Matt to feel the baby kick for our 2 year anniversary, and it has been kicking a lot this evening, but it is still too sporadic. Our consolation prize is a nice dinner this weekend, finding out the gender in 11 days, and hopefully a small babymoon to re-kindle and become an unstoppable pair before the baby comes.

       We worked hard the weekend before 19 weeks on cabinets, hardware, the new back door, fixed the toilet flusher, and fixed the a.c. I actually forgot I was pregnant for a short time because I was so busy. I have been feeling full a lot which makes me feel like I cannot breathe and I get occasional aches...guess I am growing. At 19 weeks, we flew out to Branson for our Hubbard family reunion/ Father's Day weekend.
