Just Over a Month Ago...

Just over a month ago, Eli and I experienced one of the best days of our life. Our wedding was amazing. It was wonderful and we were so fortunate to be blessed with such a beautiful day!

Just over a month ago, I fell in love all over again with Eli.

Just over a month ago, I had more butterflies in my tummy than I knew was possible.

Just over a month ago, I married the man of my dreams for a second time.

Just over a month ago, I vowed my love and commitment not only to Eli, but to my two beautiful step-kids.

With each and every day that comes, Eli and I grow. We not only grow as individuals, but as a couple - as best friends, as lovers. Our relationship isn't perfect. We have our down times just like everyone else. But we have learned to communicate with each other. Fights that used to last us days, now last not even an hour. I can't stand when we are mad at each other. And Eli, who used to fight and stay mad, will now admit when he is wrong. He will come to me to make things right. The changes the both of us have made are unreal, but real. I cherish every minute we get to spend together. I love that he takes the time to kiss me and our babies before he leaves the house in the morning. I love that he messages and calls throughout the day to let me know he is thinking of all of us and to make sure that we are all doing well. I love when he walks in the door after a long day and I am wrapped in his arms. I will never, ever be sick of that. We have so much to be thankful for. And we have so much to look forward to. We have camping trips planned, hunting trips planned and a lot of family functions that begin next month.

I know he doesn't read my blog, but just in case he ever does I want to say:

I love you Eli. I love you with everything that I have and will forever and always. Thank you for being such a wonderful husband and father. Thank you for being my best friend and for allowing me to be home with our babies. I will forever be yours!
