Today we celebrate our wedding anniversary!
I am just as in love with Jordan (actually even more) today as I was the day we said "I do!". It is so crazy to think about all that we have been through since we met and said I do. I remember it plain as day exchanging our vows...
"I, Allie, take you, Jordan, for my lawful husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part."
These words are so powerful to hear at a wedding, they always make me cry and tear up. I love every single aspect of our marriage, we have been through it all in these short years, we have had our share of emotional highs(births of the boys, new job & city) and also some emotional lows(miscarrying, job searches), but with all those moments I never once questioned our love for each other or the vows we exchanged. Being married is not just about Jordan and I all the time, being married is about all of us and our relationship directly effects the way our children will view marriage and that is some serious stuff. I sometimes hear people say "I want a marriage like my parents..." and that is what I want my children to say when they get there. (I say when because let's face it I will probably have an emotional break down losing my boys, special shout out to my mother in law for raising Jordan and welcoming me to be his wife).
Marriage is not always rainbows and butterflies (although I swear we have been very blessed lately), it will have its rainy days and it's sunny days but that is what keeps it interesting. We get on each others nerves at times but that will never stop us from loving each other until the end of time. At the end of the day it is Jordan and I and I love that fact. We have created this amazing little family and it all started because we fell in love with each other and never looked back.
I am beyond blessed to have Jordan as my husband, and even more blessed to have him be the father to our children. There is no one in the world I would rather spend every day with. I love you so much Jordan. Thank you for all that you do for me, for us, and for our family! I know every day you have been married to me has been a dream :) hahahah joking but seriously....I love you always babe!
Here's to us!.....xoxo!
