December 27 was our 10 year anniversary!
Ready to watch us grow up??
I've lost my baby face and we've got a few new lines around our eyes,
but I think our appearances haven't changed too drastically.
BUT after 5 kids and 10 years, we've changed a lot more than our appearances may let on.
We've grown in our faith, our parenting, our love, and our perspective.
A while back I told Sam that falling in love was like riding a roller coaster blindfolded.
It was super exciting and thrilling and I didn't know what was ahead and there were jolts in my stomach and rushes of emotion I'd never before felt.
But more seasoned love is like sitting in the warm glow of a Christmas tree, wrapped in a fuzzy blanket, sipping hot chocolate.
It's comforting, it's reassuring, it's steady, it's sentimental, and it feels just like home.
The roller coaster ride was a good ride--a fun ride.
But the kind of happiness, contentment, and unity I feel now is like none other.
