...7 short years...

today marks seven years of marriage for us.  seven years sounds like no time at all! it seems to both of us like we've been married much longer. we've accomplished A LOT together over the past seven years.

in seven years, we've:
1.  gotten married (obviously)
2.  had two children
3.  lived in 5 different homes
4.  lived in 3 different states (nebraska, florida, georgia)
5.  traveled together to india twice and mozambique once
6.  played well.   we've been to fabulous concerts (john mayer, dave matthews, sheryl crow, willie nelson, foo fighters), gone skydiving, traveled many places, enjoyed date nights, and found life long friends together.

i'm incredibly grateful for the gift of my marriage.  cheers to all the things the lord has in store for us.  in the words of frank sinatra, the best is yet to come!
