52 Weeks of Love: 2 Pink Lines!



Dear Mr. Pancakes,

Today we celebrate 365 days, 52 Weeks  and 1 year of Love !
This year has definitely been a year of many firsts 
and it has been more than amazing!

Life is a series of moments 
and you are who i want to share these moments with!

On April 23, 2011, we jumped the broom 
and on the other side was our new lives waiting for us.

We celebrated 5 glorious days in paradise (Barbados).
We set up a new home in our apartment.
We beat thyroid cancer successfully (with lots of prayer)!
We celebrated our first summer and birthdays as husband and wife.
We enjoyed my first college football game.
We celebrated our first Thanksgiving, Christmas,
New Year's Eve and Valentine's as husband and wife.
You became a trustee at the Church.
I trained and ran my first half-marathon.
I continued to enjoy blogging--initiated Living Our Vows.
You grew the family business.
We ate a fair amount of pancakes.
We filed our taxes together as a married couple.
At moments throughout the year, we laughed, we cried, we fought,
 we made up and most of all, we continued to love 
and look to God for guidance and direction at all times!

And the best blessing in the 52 Weeks of Celebrating Love are the two pink lines....
that announced we would become parents to our Future Baby Pancakes!!!

Words cannot begin to express how these new moments
 in our lives are shaping us as individuals and a married couple.  
There is so much emotion rolling up inside of me right now 
but the best one is the little heart that beats inside of me!  
A heart that reveals to me God continues to bless us abundantly and beyond measure!
I know we are both humbled by this new part of our journey...

Here is to all the amazing experiences that will occur after today--
our first 365 days, 52 weeks and 1 year of Celebrating Love!

I LOVE you and Baby Pancakes to the moon and back
 again and again and again and again...

Love Always, 
Your Wife &
Soon-2-Be: Mama Pancakes!
