Here's to 5 rich years!

Not only did we celebrate the 4th, but we also got to enjoy our 5th wedding anniversary. I can't believe it's been 5 years and we're even beginning to look alike. Yikes:
We went to a wonderful, romantic dinner downtown to celebrate. It was kid-free and carefree (thanks to grandma and grandpa). After dinner we walked hand-in-hand chatting and laughing in a perfect mid-summers eve.

Here's to the best 5 years of my life, and the last one the best of all!

I have a certain problem when it comes to communicating how I feel about this man. Words just seem dumb, and although I try to tell him, I have resolved to focus on showing him through the way we live our day to day lives. I hope he can feel and experience my respect and love for him even though sometimes I feed him Mac 'n' Cheese dinners.

I am who I am because of him. Our family dances the way it dances because of his vision and conviction and joy. I'm so thankful because I know I would be far off from here if it weren't for his leadership. He takes responsibility, sees where we need to go, puts us on his back, and takes us there. And he does it in such a loving and sacrificial way. He does it in such a way that would cause me to follow him to the ends of the earth. I want to say more, to try to say more, but like I said, words seem to fall short. So I'll just say this, true love is sacrifice. In our home we've taught Colson that to say "I love you" means "my life is yours" or "I give you my life." KC has led the way in this with his love for me, and it's my hearts desire to reciprocate, and if it were possible, to outdo him.

Hi Keri, I have been following your blog for the past coupla months... I found it through Maureen's. You may remember me-my maiden name is Hallimore. :) I just love your thoughts. Seriously, this lil space you have created to share about your family and your faith is such an encouragement. Blessings on your heads. May your babies grow up to be godly men, warriors for the Kingdom. And may your marriage continue to be richly blessed.
