Our wedding day really was everything I imaged and more. I feel blessed beyond belief, thankful beyond words, and more confident in God’s timing than I ever have been. You have probably seen the long and short of the story of Eric and I on here a time or two but reliving it often, especially as an anniversary is approaching, feels like an essential.

About three months into dating, the idea of marriage slowly snuck into our conversations. It became something that we talked about more as the months went on, and 11 months into dating I was surprised with what I thought was breakfast, and turned into a, “Will you marry me?” There was no question in my mind that this was the right decision and I am grateful each day that I said, ‘yes.’

One of the most difficult parts of our relationship though was living a distance apart. We savored the weekends and spent almost all of them together. Sunday evenings and the goodbyes were never easy but leaving little love notes to each other became our thing until the next time we would see each other. I started writing him little sentiments on a post-it note but fell short one time when I couldn’t find anything but a thank you card. Somehow, it seemed fitting as I rambled on about all of the things I am thankful for that he encompasses and does. From there on out, a lot of our notes were written on thank-you cards and it was no surprise (and also the sweetest thing-ever!) when Eric wrote his vows on a thank you card for our wedding.We’re coming up on two years of marriage and to say I’m over the moon about him doesn’t do any justice. Things have only gotten so much better with time and I love doing life with him. I wanted something to wear to celebrate two years of us. Since I wear my bar necklace and ring all the time, I thought an engraved ring with our wedding date would be the perfect touch! I also added this stacking band for fun. If you need a reason to celebrate someone you love, there are endless options you can find here. 🙂
