For 7 years, 6 months, 27 days….2,766 days, we’ve embarked on this adventure of life together. Through the years, we’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve laughed until we cried, and we’ve cried until we laughed. You’ve been the one I could always count on – from when I needed someone to talk to, vent to, listen to, or you buying me food because you know me well enough to know food is the way to my heart, especially when I’m hangry. On a more serious note, I vow to choose you every day and to choose us over all of life’s little distractions. I vow to protect you emotionally, taking the time to listen to your needs and concerns and offer advice when needed. I vow to protect you spiritually, being a wife that holds you accountable and to remind you of God’s sovereignty and His grace. I vow to respect you by honoring the role God has given man to be the leader of our family and I will support you with whatever decisions lie in our future. I vow to be your best friend, your confidant, your reason to come home, and your backseat driver. But these aren’t just vows; these are privileges. I count it a privilege to be the one God has ordained to go through this life with you. 2,766 days, over 3 million minutes and I don’t think I can take another minute of not being your wife, so let’s get this shindig on the road. Here’s to day 1 of this new adventure with you.

3 Sentence Love Story
Cole and I met in 9th grade where we both had a journalism class together. His first words to me were, “Could you move seats? My friend is going to sit there.” We started dating a few weeks later, survived college and the long distance, and FINALLY got married weeks after our college graduation….and it’s been the sweetest ride.
