Happy Anniversary to me!

This morning, the Lord woke me up 5 minutes before my alarm. Isn't that the best feeling ever? To be woken up without the aid of a crying child or blaring alarm is a beautiful thing. Speaking of crying children, Jayci has a "rip-roaring ear infection" (her doctor's words, not mine) Poor thing, she is so congested that she has (WARNING -DISGUSTING) snot coming out of her eyes. Gag.

Anyways, on to my point. Geesh.

Today is the my 4-year wedding anniversary. Thinking back to four years ago, I can hardly believe how much we have grown and changed. And that I can still get those butterflies when I'm with him. Our wedding was on a beautiful, cold day. But it was sunny and I was marrying my high school sweetheart, so I didn't even mind the cold.

(Doesn't Adam look like such a baby? I robbed the cradle and married a 14 year old!)
Adam and I met in high school chemistry class. We like to say we had chemistry (I also like to say that I got an A, he got a C, and he's the one who ended up being a chemistry teacher. Just sayin'). There was a seating chart, and we happened to be next to each other in the back corner. Until the teacher moved us apart because we talked to much. So Adam has to sit in the front, where he wrote me notes on gum wrappers and tossed them across the room when the teacher turned her back. I'd like to say the notes were sweet and sentimental poems. And they were poems. Just poems making fun of me for being a Canadian. Apparently, I like that in a man.

The Lord blessed our relationship, and somehow protected our hearts enough to give us wisdom which we did not possess on our own. Although we kissed when we first started dating, we decided about a year in that if we wanted to "save ourselves for marriage," we should not kiss again until our wedding day. So three years later, we had a nice awkward kiss at the altar (in all seriousness, I'm not sure we would have made it without the supernatural wisdom to make that decision - because I had lots of friends whose relationships were destroyed by the physical aspect. Plus, we were forced to TALK).
All this to say that four years later, Adam and I have been through our ups and downs (and his hair has also been through it's ups and downs. Mostly downs). But the Lord has been faithful to guide our steps as a couple. I love him as much, more really, than I did when I walked down the aisle 4 years ago. He is a wonderful dad and fantastic husband. I mean, for realz y'all, he plans meals, does groceries, and makes dinner every night. And when he did the shopping this week, he got me Cadbury Mini Eggs. Hello love.

Have I mentioned he makes me laugh?
My funny friend Kristi commented on this picture, and I think it sums things up beautifully: "Stop that crazy uni-bomber...he's trying to take your baby...oh's adam...sorry about that!"
Happy Anniversary Adam - I love you and can't wait to see what this year holds for us!
