Happy Anniversary!


Our first picture together, not long after we met and started dating!

Happy 4th Anniversary to my very best friend! The past four years of marriage and the year and a half of dating/being engaged have truly been the best years of my life! I am so thankful God chose you for me. You were definitely worth the wait!

I remember the day we met and how fabulous and unexpected it was. We met for lunch, but ended up spending half the day together. I remember the evening you proposed to me…on the beach in Maui. We spent the day together and ended it, so I thought, with dinner. Then you took me out on the beach and proposed to me as the sun was setting off the waters, between the islands of Lana’i and Moloka’i. Four years ago today, you made my dreams come true! I remember the anticipation leading up to our ceremony, the butterflies as you sang to me and as we said our vows, and then the great party we had with our family and friends afterwards!

This past year was certainly a year to remember. We started it off with continued struggles through infertility. You (and God) were my rock throughout the heartache. Thankfully God’s plan this past year included getting pregnant, but first you had to help me through the fertility treatments, the tests, the injections in my stomach, and the painful waiting. Months later, we had one of the most incredible, memorable experiences of giving birth to Jonathan. You, again, were my rock. Without you, I wouldn’t have made it through such a whirlwind of an experience!

We also had the blessing of serving on the mission field together. Alongside our team, we were able to share the love of Christ in Moldova. What an amazing experience!

Thank you Joe for being such an amazing husband, and daddy too! I thank God for each day we have together. I can’t wait to see what God has for us in the years to come!
