9 years ago today I married my best friend, and we are more in love today than we were then. We’ve been through some crazy trials over the years. Things that would break a lot of marriages. We came out of each one stronger, but only by the grace of God! Relying on Him through each and every one of those times, and allowing Christ to be the center of our marriage has allowed us to press on, hand in hand through it all.
“Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” ~ Ecc 4:12
9 years ago, after our wedding and reception, we went back to the hotel to hang out with out-of-town friends and family for a couple days before heading out on our honeymoon. Once we were there, we realized we forgot our swimsuits, so we left our friends & family, jumped in the truck and drove home to get them. Along the way we realized how hungry we were, so we stopped at Sonic.
We were still in our wedding attire – he in a tux, and me in my dress.
With the truck still decorated.
The teenager that brought our food out to us said NOTHING. Not a word. I had to wonder, is this something he sees often?
So it started a tradition for us – every year on our anniversary we eat at Sonic.
I love it. It’s silly, it’s fun, it’s unique, it’s cheap, and most of all it reminds me of that day that I became his Bride.
This year, we couldn’t be together because he’s still finishing up his Army training, but that didn’t keep each of us from celebrating with our annual tradition…together…500 miles apart. Except tonight I had to share my tator tots with my daughter.
I love you, Hubby! More and more every day! Come. Home. Soon.
Wow, we look young!
