I am going to be a little sappy....

Eric and I two days before we got married. Bryce had us all wear hats while playing cards.

Our honeymoon in Hawaii!

Eric and Lillie on July 4, this year.

Yesterday Eric and I celebrated our six year anniversary and I wanted to post some things about my husband that some of you know and some of you don't. Our wedding day was the happiest day of my life. I loved everything about it. I loved the people we were surrounded by, I loved that my Dad and a close missionary friend of ours did the ceremony, I loved that I had seven bridesmaids that were all people I loved and cared about, I loved my dress, I loved the church we got married in, I loved the reception that my mom and aunts decorated for, and I loved my bouquet. But most of all I loved the person I was about to spend the rest of my life with, Eric, more then I thought I could love a person. In the six short years we have been able to travel to many fun places. We have experienced having a baby and what it means to be parents, and we also experienced the loss of a baby. We have experienced living on two incomes and then trying to live on one income. We have also experienced trials within our families, and learning how to get through it. Through all of the easy and the hard times we have been able to be a strong team and work through it all which has only allowed us to grow closer in our relationship. Eric is one of the most caring, loving, kind, intelligent, thoughtful, and selfless people I know. He is a fantastic Dad and a wonderful husband. I look forward to many many more years to come and consider myself very blessed that I am able to be a part of his life. I love you Eric!

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."

"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

1 Corinthians 13:4-7, 13

Congratulations!!! I wish that I knew Eric personally. May God continue to strengthen your marriage and give you many more happy years together. It was so fun to be able to be at your wedding six years ago. Our trip to Texas for the event was a fun time for both Marc and I as well. We enjoyed the rehearsal dinner, the ceremony and reception, our sight-seeing trip to San Antonio and watching the bats fly out from under the bridge in Austin. Fun times!
