Our TWO year wedding anniversary is next week! TADA! I don't know if it's felt like a long time or hardly any time at all.
I was reminiscing over our story together and I love how how our relationship started. It's such a sweet love story...and so it began...
|My dream to be in law enforcement started when I was five...Just a little girl fascinated by a police radio. I was a cute model for the Reagan International Airport police department. I was posing as a lost child and this picture was printed in their magazine and hung on my bedroom wall for 2 decades.|
|After four years of studying criminal justice and working extremely hard to accomplish my goals...all my hard work paid off and landed me a career with the Police Department. This is Recruit Officer Witherspoon, and the "nessie" rope.|
|I felt so young here, no responsibility, no stress, just a world of endless possibilities. We started planning our future...several months later...|
|While visiting his family in the city of LOVE (Philly) Brian proposed!|
October 23, 2010
We love everything about the season of fall and
celebrated our marriage on a beautiful crisp day! We had so much fun with our family and friends!
I remember how strong and commanding his voice sounded as he took his vows.
I love replaying the music we used during the ceremony, mostly the soundtrack from Little Women. I get flutters in my stomach all over again when I realize the blessings from marriage and how LOVED I am by my husband!
He is such a great man and I'm still so far from being the wife that I want to be to serve and respect him daily and lovingly.
Thank you Jesus for supplying the perfect man to help carry me through this life!
So here we are today! In our newish home, preparing the place to start a family while having fun being young!
What an adventure it's been in a few short years.
Can I take a moment and talk about the not so romantic part of our story...Don't worry it was all a valuable learning experience because we both had some issues and sins that did not belong in our hearts. But realistically...
Marriage is sometimes hard and annoying. And at times I felt like the only wife in the world failing at loving my husband...
It's a little embarrassing to admit we've been to marriage counseling and had those doubts about our future together and if we could "make it work". But those valleys only came about when we were both so far from God and each other. I'm so thankful that God has been faithful in teaching, comforting, and supplying our needs, even when we're stubborn!
My theme verse for this month is:
"For God is working in you (Laura), giving you the desire and power
To do what pleases Him (and Brian)! Phil 2:13
~I Love Him~
