Two years and counting...

Two years ago, I married Jason Petree on a hot and humid August day in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. It was one of the best days of my life and the start of an adventure that I could have never imagined. In two years we have learned more than we thought we was possible about our vows, particularly that "for better or for worse" part. But move after move, job change after job change...after job change, God has been faithful. We are together and we are growing in His goodness and grace. There are days where that is hard to proclaim, but it doesn't stop it from being from true.

To you: friends, family and random readers (I might not know you, but I'm glad you're here!)- Thank you for your love and support. For reading this blog, looking at ridiculous pictures of our dumb dogs, for praying for us, for worrying about us, for rejoicing when things have finally gone right, for trusting and hoping that we will finally land in a place where we can put down deep deep roots. I'm not stupid, marriage is more than just two people. It involves community. And y'all, you have done community so well. Even through the internet and from miles away.

To my love: Thank you for taking me on this journey. I never could have dreamed it up, its joys and struggles, ALL of it. But it is God-created and for a purpose. Thank you for loving me so well, for wiping away countless tears, for making me laugh harder than ever. The first two years certainly haven't been boring, here's to the next year and whatever it might bring! I'm so glad I'll get to see it with you...
