7 years ago ...

This collage, featuring some of my favorite moments
as Kelly captured them, hangs in our house.

Happy anniversary, Greg!

Seven years ago when I walked down the aisle to you, I had some expectations of our future. I knew we'd end up in Murray. I figured we'd have kids. And I knew you'd often beat me in any game we'd play.

But I had no idea I'd adore our life in Murray like I do. I couldn't have scripted a better journey to our daughter, who has helped me fall more in love with you. I certainly didn't expect our second adoption to unfold as it is. I've taught you how to be a better Scrabble player, so much so that I can't remember the last time I won, but I've managed to dominate Catan every now and then.

You've made me braver and calmer. Together we've exceeded the expectations I had seven years ago today. And each year gets better and better. Here's to at least 43 more.


  1. I love you guys! Happy Anniversary!

  2. It will get better and better with each year. I am so excited to see how your life together unfold. God is good and he has blessed us all. Happy Anniversary.
