A journey together.

6 years ago today at 6:30 pm (eastern time) Adam and I began our journey as husband and wife.  Everyday since then we’ve taken it all one step at a time and done so together – whatever may come – may come – we have vowed to try our best at 2 becoming 1 and to approach every challenge head on – to not be children when it comes to difficult conversations and to remember to laugh at ourselves, to remember that love is greater than anything, to be love, to breathe love —  we would journey together and no matter where we ended up we would at least be together.

When Adam told me he wanted to come to Waco, TX for graduate school – my one stipulation was that we would immediately move back to NC after his schooling was over.  Who knew that we would find this community of friends that feel more like family that would come around us and transform Waco from the place we came for 3 years to the place we now call home.  In some divine intervention we have found ourselves fully in love with our city, our home, our friends, our church – the meaning of home to us has expanded beyond the walls of a house.

6 years later we find ourselves today spending time with our friends at church, playing on the floor with our adorable son and thinking that this is the best! We look to the future and know that 6 years is a drop in the bucket of things to come – but plan to enjoy this year in its individual moments and to embrace the beauty of now – not to wish Everett away to an older age or us to another place as those things come in their own time – for now life is great – we have each other.

As I type behind me in the living room I here Everett making fun noises and laughing as Adam says “Hipppoooo” as he plays with a stuffed Hippo from our friends the Evans — and my heart is full of joy.
