four years married

"The difference between an ordinary marriage and an extraordinary marriage is in giving just a little 'extra' every day, as often as possible, for as long as we both shall live." - Fawn Weaver

Today, Kyle and I celebrate four years of marriage! It's been an unexplainable four years, ones filled with the best and worst of times, the happiest and saddest of days, and our strongest and weakest moments.

If there's one thing I've learned about marriage in our four years as one, it's that just when you think you have it all figured it, you're swiftly reminded that you absolutely do not have anything figured out.

But God does. And we live off that promise every single day.

Kyle, men like you are hard to come by. By "men like you", I mean the ones who love their wife more than they love themselves, and who love God even more than that. The ones who see the worst sides of their wife, yet love them more each day. The ones who never give up, even when giving up would be the easiest thing to do. The ones who continually remind their wife that they look much more beautiful than what their eyes tell them. The ones who would quite literally give their entire lives to their family, even though their family sometimes consist of a stressed-out wife that hasn't washed her hair in a week and a toddler who says 'no' more than 'I love you'.
Thank you for sticking by my side, even on the day I threw your socks away when you forgot to put them in the laundry. Again. 😉 Thank you for supporting me every day, even the days you had to put your dreams on hold to support mine. Thank you for encouraging me, even on the days I feel like I can't take another step.
Most of all, thank you for loving me, even on the days I was unlovable.
I love you, too.

From the east to the west,
Brandi, aka the wife who picked up your socks instead of throwing them in the laundry today. ♥
