As I look back on July 30, 2004, I can't help but think about how naive I was. I, like most girls, just assumed you met a nice guy, got married, had kids, and lived happily ever after.
Now, eight years later, I realize just how important it is that I married such an amazing man. We've faced our ups and downs (infertility, getting pregnant, losing Aubrey, more infertility, adoption trials, and adopting Joseph to name a few), but we've made it through and have a stronger relationship because of them.
Sam, I'm so glad we braved the July heat for a wedding with a beautiful Oklahoma sunset as our backdrop on that glorious day when we became husband and wife. I couldn't imagine making it through the last eight years with anyone else! I look forward to many, many more happy years with you and our growing family!
