2 year anniversary

2 years ago today, i said these words...

I Parla, take you Dave to be my wedded husband
To have and to hold from this day forward
For better, for worse
For richer, for poorer
In sickness and in health.
According to God's holy ordinance
I will love, cherish, and respect you,
and forsaking all others
will remain true to you
as long as we both shall live.
I hereto pledge myself to you.

It's been a good 2 years :)

i don't feel like i'm good with words
i have no idea how to express how blessed i feel to be married to this man
i don't know what i could say to give him the honor that he deserves

i knew i was marrying a good guy, but i had no idea how good!!!
the love he has shown me over the past 2 years has astounded me over and over again.
he is so much more giving, understanding, gentle, loving, and caring than i even knew on that day when we both said "i do."
i wish i could explain to you how unselfish his love toward me is.
all i know is that since we've been together, i have experienced love in a whole new dimension
a love that gives completely
a love that reaches out, even when i am so undeserving
a love that still loves even when it's been hurt
in experiencing Dave's love for me, i feel like God has given me a little clearer picture of what His love is for me...deep, extravagant, unconditional.

I love you Baby!
thank you for choosing me :)
