4 Years

I can honestly say I fall more in love with Big Guy each and every year.  It’s hard to believe we’ve been married four years.  Every year comes with absolute joy and memories that you want to hold on to forever.  But every year also comes with challenges and hard, hard days.  This year was no different.  And no matter how many years you’ve been married, I don’t think it gets easier.  The challenges and joys may be different as the years go by, but they are there.

Our fourth year was filled with some incredible memories.  Take a trip down memory lane with me…

Taylor and Kiersten’s weekend visit that included a trip to SoCo, an epic cheese board and homemade pasta.

A long Memorial Day Weekend at OIB.  A visit I will never forget that was filled with so much love, sunshine and laughs.

Our garden.  Again, zucchini the size of my lower leg that we used in so many recipes so we wouldn’t tire of eating it.

PIZZA. and SUSHI.  I hope pizza and sushi are always a part of each year we’re married.  

Taking Haines for ice-cream over the 4th of July.  

Sonoma vs. Napa wine dinner with Maggie and Brad – hopefully she’ll come one year when she’s not pregnant.  Hah!

The end of July and beginning of August were a hard season.  But we came out stronger.

Watching Haines and Deacon eat the watermelon you grew after Mimi’s 80th birthday bash.

Our Watick dinner dates.  Wine.  So much wine.

GREEEEEECE.  The most unbelievable, one-in-a-lifetime trip.  You truly made my dreams comes true.

Football games and tailgating.  I love seeing you so passionate about a Saturday.

Welcoming another nephew, Braxton. And then finding out we were getting another nephew in 2017.

A night out in Raleigh to celebrate the Christmas season.

Christmas spent with family.  I’ve never had more fun with the Watson’s than when we spent a few days in the mountains together.

Getting all fancied up for the Hospital Gala.

A random weekend in March at OIB.  Filled with long walks and salty air.

Pawpaw and Mawmaw’s visit.  You are such the host.  And it warms my heart.

And finally, celebrating our anniversary in Charleston this past weekend.  

You honestly make me a better person, Big Guy.  Whether we’re lounging around the house on a Sunday evening, or making an absolute mess in the kitchen, or traveling anywhere and everything – you are my person and everything is more fun with you by my side.
