One Whole Year of Marriage!!!

Matthew and I just recently celebrated our one year anniversary!  Wow!  It's hard to believe it's already been that long.  Time sure has flown.

I love Matthew more now than the day that we got married.  It's amazing how love grows.  He's my dream come true, my sweetheart, my best friend.  I thank the Lord for blessing me with such a godly man.

For our anniversary, Matthew took me out to a friend's vacation house on the lake for a few days.  It was a lovely cabin, beautifully furnished and it literally sat about 6 feet off of the lake, with a huge front porch spanning the cabin to enjoy the private view.  We were so blessed to be able to stay there and enjoy our get-away time together.   

We knew that with me being so far along in my pregnancy we'd have to scale back on some of our favorite activities, like hiking or jet skiing, ;-) but we had a lot of fun challenging each other in bowling and mini-golf, along with going to the movies and out to eat.

He took me out on the lake in the little row boat, but the funny thing about this boat is that it had no oars!  So he graciously rowed me around with a shovel that he found!!!  Oh, the joy of being creative!

On the last night, my family came over to share dinner with us, play games, sing, chat and simply enjoy the beauty of the lake. 

 We had a lot of fun reminiscing about our wedding and the wonderful year we've had.  We are looking forward to many, many more blessed years of marriage together!
