Four years. Four years since one of the best decisions I've ever made. Four years since you (officially) chose me. Four years since our 21-year-old selves said "I do." Four years since we asked God to help us serve, love, and protect one another.
These have been the best (and craziest) four years of my life! We've lived in three states, in 11 different homes, and have been in 7 different countries. We've been through times of immense joy and incredible heartache. We have wiped each others tears, laughed like when we were teenagers, and stood together through it all, by God's grace. And we made one incredibly cute baby too!
I love you Brian James. You have been Jesus to me. You have been grace, patience, commitment, service, and joy. You have seen me at my utter worst, and loved me through every moment. I couldn't have dreamed of a better companion to do this life with. I pray that I can serve and love you like Jesus, and like you have served and loved me. Happy anniversary!
Remember this? I loved this day. I still do.

Your sweet face as my dad walked me down the aisle to you
Sweet words, prayers, and laughs as we chose each other in front of our family and friends!
Yeah, we high-fived. I promise there's a story behind this.
Our amazing bridal party (that was apparently big enough for a football team...)
And it wouldn't have been our wedding without a lightsaber war (nerd alert)
I'm pretty sure we like each other
You're my best friend Brian. I love you. Here's to another 80 years together!
(And a HUGE thanks to the amazing Gerald and Airika Pope for taking such beautiful pictures. Still, 4 years later, I tear up when I look at them. You guys did an incredible job.)
