One amazing Year with an even more amazing husband!

I cannot even begin to describe how blessed I feel every single day to be married to my husband. There are so many times that I think to myself, I wish the world could see what he's doing right now...like when he stops to not just say hello to a homeless man, but makes sure he is taken care of, fed and talked to like a real person for more than 10 minutes, or when he's at work with 95 year olds who cry in their room because they are so depressed and he goes out and buys them their favorite meal or a fishing pole because that is the only thing they can tell him that they ever really loved to do...and then 10 minutes later don't remember anything about his loving act or the fact that they were sad because they have alzheimers. Or when there is a man who no one will go see because he's so mean in the nursing home, and Blake walks straight in his room without reservations every single day, gets to know him and then prays with him to accept the Lord at age 92. The man to this day will only talk to Blake and no one else. I kid him all the time that he is Patch Adams, but the truth is all he cares about is giving people joy and love with the most capacity he has, and it is the most beautiful thing in the world.

It is such a reminder to me of how Jesus loves me and everyone in the world. I don't think Blake ever even tries to do those things, in fact, if I weren't there to see it myself he would probably
never tell me, but the Lord has just made him with "a heart of gold" as I like to always say to him :)

Not only does Blake love other people well, he also loves me in an incredible way. He is the most patient, kind, gentle, thoughtful and loving husband. He is so much more than I could have ever imagined for my life, and there are so many times I ask God, "why did you give me someone that I so don't deserve?" I am overwhelmed so many times with love for him, but more importantly with love for the Lord because of his amazing gift in giving me Blake.

Since day one he has brought out the best in me. He has made me more laid-back and more compassionate. I've learned about the value of being genuine with people through him and the importance of laughing at yourself on a regular basis. He is everything that I am not. He is humble, hilarious and adventurous, yet he pushes me to be those things every day.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures of our year together. I cannot wait for the years to come and the new memories we will make together. I cannot wait to see how he grows and the things I continue to learn through him. I cannot wait to see him become a father to our children one day if the Lord blesses us with them, and how much fun we'll have all over again together with them. Thank you, Blake for all that you do, for all that you give to me and for all that you are. I love you to Heaven and back! :)
