Today we are celebrating 4 years of marriage.
Last year on our third anniversary, I shared a bunch of pictures from our big day.
This year, I think I just want to write about the place we're in now.
Because I know that next year on our anniversary, we will be in a totally different place.
Next year at this time, we'll have a nine month old.
My husband is totally my partner in life. We are a team.
Team Jachel is what we (and a few friends) have been known to call us.
And I love my "teammate" more than I can put into words.
I won't get all mushy here, but my husband makes me happier than I ever thought was possible.
He's my perfect match. That's all there is to it.
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't just a little scared about what our 5th year of marriage is going to bring.
We are getting ready to bring a baby into this world, OUR baby, and that baby will be joining our little family. And that's terrifying! We are over the moon excited for this little girl to get here, but the unknowns that this baby girl will bring are pretty darn scary. When we stop and think about how much our lives are going to change over the next year, it's sort of a crazy feeling. We've become so good at being "us," J and Rachel, and I often wonder how we're going to adjust into this new role as parents. I know that we will be okay. But I know that there will be growing pains for all of us over the next 12 months. And it's all uncharted territory.
But you know what? I am positive that there's no one I would rather be doing this with.
While we may not know what is in store for us, I do know that I'm doing it all with the greatest man I know. And he'll be there to be my better half when I need it the most, and hopefully I'll be able to do the same for him. I think this little lady is going to be just fine with us as her parents. Even if we have no idea what we're doing most the time.
And what's a blog post without some pictures?
A little walk down year four of marriage...
So...4 years of marriage have brought us here.
I can't wait for year number five!
