when you are married to your best friend! Four years ago today I married my best friend Nathan. It was the best day of my life. Our wedding was just what I wanted-a noon ceremony with lots of family and friends and then a big southern lunch buffet afterwards at the art museum. I love to go back and look at the pictures of that fun, sweet day. I could never have asked for a better husband and father than what God gave me in Nathan. He is so loving, kind, and compassionate, strong and smart. He loves the Lord and he loves me and Hayes. I know that because of the way he lives his life and the way he treats us (and others) with such total and unconditional love and respect. He truly lives out his faith on a daily basis and for that I am so grateful. Happy anniversary Nathan! I love you way more than I could ever tell or show you!!
Three and a half years later we were so blessed that we were chosen to be Hayes' parents. It's funny that we thought we would have a boy first and I just knew and kept thinking that Nathan would be a great "boy" dad (and hopefully will some day:) But wow now seeing him with his daughter there is no doubt that he is the greatest daddy a little girl could ever have. I mean really, I know she loves me since I am with her all day, but there is some BIG TIME excitement and happiness when her Daddy walks through the door. I guess it will always be like that?! I hope so! Seriously Hayes is one lucky little baby girl-she has got her Daddy wrapped big time!
Love that precious face!
