Four score and seven years ago...

I'm just kidding.
It was four years ago.
Not four score and seven years ago...
Four years ago I married my hunky husband.
Sure did.

I would have never guessed on that day that 4 years later I would be
a momma
to two beautiful little girls...

Thanks to this guy:

I love him. Sure do.
Sometimes, it honestly feels like we've been
as far back as I can remember.
And then other times I can't believe that
4 years
managed to fly by so quickly.
It makes me want to savor every single little moment we share together...

Life is a crazy thing, I tell ya...

I always smile whenever I look back through our wedding pictures.
It was such a good day.
Not just a good day, but a goood day.
The kind of good that requires extra 'o's and italics and bold print.

And I will never say it was the best day.
Because that would be sad.
If the 'best' day of your life is the day you get married, you're totally missing the point.
Because if you do it right, every single day
-from that point forward-
is better than the last.
I should know.
I've have 4 whole years of better-than-yesterdays.

Hello Baby #1!

And if I said we didn't have some
ups and downs and twists and turns,
you would call me a liar because it would be a line of BS.
So I won't say it.
Because you'd be right.
I'd be a liar and it would be a total line of BS.

But I wouldn't change a thing.
Because it's the ups and downs- and how you handle them- that make you stronger.

And it's good to know that I'll always have my best friend right there with me.
No matter what.

I can't wait to see what the next 4 years has to offer.
And then the 4 after that, and the four after that....
