Two Years Ago I was a Bride…

Two years ago was the most fun, best day of my life.  I have posted details about that day here and here
Wedding day, just after our first look!  (hello 35 pound heavier Brittney!  You were a happy, beautiful bride….but ya could have laid off the fast food! ha!)
Our wedding was everything I ever wanted, but much, much more than that…being married to Tyler is more than everything I ever wanted.
I have to admit, we have had two pretty great years.  They were no problem free.  We married my second semester of grad school.  He was patient as I spent nights and weekends in the library writing papers, working on my thesis, and reading.  He put up with lots of bring home dinners when I got out of class at 8 p.m. a couple nights a week.  He worked in Fort Smith while we lived in Fayetteville…and the stress of an hour commute both ways really wore him down.  I had to learn (quickly) how to encourage and lift up my husband as he was pretty defeated from driving, working all day, and then driving home.  
Exited the church in a sea of friends, family and bubbles!
But these two years have been overwhelmingly great.  We were blessed to get into a cheap but bigger apartment June after we got married.  It was only $15 a month more than our tiny one bedroom, but had a better location and more room.  We were blessed to buy our 20 acres before our first anniversary and start building our dream home.  We were blessed that Tyler’s business is strong (the economy has affected business, but it is still successful and making money).  We were blessed that before I even graduated from grad school I had a great job.  We were blessed for our house to be completed just as our lease in Fayetteville was up…so we didn’t have to store our stuff or live out of my MIL’s house. 
We were blessed to get our Mikey, the most fun dog we could ever want!  We are blessed for this new job of mine and the opportunity it brings.
Walking down the aisle as husband and wife after the ceremony.  Walking to our future together!
We have learned so much about each other, about living together, about serving one another.  We are most blessed to have one another.

Tyler, thank you for asking me to be your bride.  Thank you for loving me unconditionally (even when I make messes, carelessly step on your feet, or burn dinner).  Thank you for supporting me, encouraging me, and always listening to me.  I can’t wait to see what the next years hold for us!  I am so thankful and blessed to be your wife!  Happy 2nd anniversary!
