On March 16, 2018 Josh and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary!! It may not seem like a lot of time to most, but 5 years is just a number compared to the amount of memories and joys we’ve shared, and the triumphs and sorrows we’ve been through. If you ever catch me in conversation, I’d likely insert my little family into our chat, mainly because they are my world. And this world would not exist without Josh, who is one of the greatest depictions of God’s love for me. I’m not going to sit here for hours and tell you that my marriage is perfect, because it’s not, and I’d dare say there is no such thing. But I do believe that two people can be perfectly made for one another, and I’m truly blessed to call Josh “my person.”
These past five years have had many joyful moments, but believe me, there have been some hard ones, too. But I would say that aside from the Lord guiding us through every moment, Josh has been by my side through thick and thin. He was there through the darkest moments of my journey with depression and anxiety. He was there when my mom was diagnosed with cancer, as she battled the disease, and even as we dealt with the pain of her passing. He held my hand through the birth of two beautiful kids, one of the scariest things I’ve ever been through. He’s watched my business grow, encouraged me, and even gave me an extra push not to quit each time I felt like giving up. He is my biggest advocate, and fight with AND for me, especially when I do not fight for myself (conflict has never been my thing, ya’ll). He is everything to me. And I know it sounds cliche, but each day that I wake up next to him is sweeter than the day before.
He is “my person,” my soulmate, my best friend, my rock…he is everything. We have a long road ahead of us, and we don’t know what tomorrow holds, but we are grateful to be in this journey together, and for sweet moments like these with amazing friends like Andrew and Tianna (who we soooo look up to as examples for our relationship. We love them!!!) where we can be present with one another and fall deeper and deeper, over and over again.
Love, Andrew & Tianna
