Eleven.

Today marks eleven years with CC. Happy eleven, Baby!

Eleven years ago I walked down the aisle to meet my best friend and commit to a life with him.

We'd already been dating for over five and a half years by that point- I thought I loved him as much as it was possible to love someone. I thought I knew everything about him, his strengths and weaknesses. I thought I knew what I was getting into.

Eleven years later, I love him more, know him better, realize he's not quite the same person he was back then, and praise God he still loves who I am today vs. the girl I was at that time. The Lord used this man to grow me, challenge me, support me, strengthen me, love me, hold me, cry and laugh with me, and on and on.

I am so daily, eternally, grateful for the man I'm married to.

I love you more today than eleven years ago, CC.

Thanks for your beautiful words. It feels like yesterday and a lifetime ago all at once. Thank you for sharing life WITH me. I wouldn't want it any other way!
