Anniversary.

It is hard to believe Luke and I are celebrating our second anniversary today.  It is even harder to believe we have a baby that is almost 1.  I woke up this morning to breakfast, and flowers from Luke and Hudson.  When I walked in the kitchen and saw the two of them my heart was filled with so much joy.  If you had told me when we got married this is where we would be in two years, I would have said you were crazy.  I wouldn't have it any other way.  When Luke and I were going through pre-marital counseling our preacher said "I know it is hard for you to believe that you could be more in love than you are now, but you will be."  I realize that now more than ever.  This last year has been the most challenging, and rewarding year of my life.  It has been so amazing to see Luke go from not only a husband, but a dad.  He is the most wonderful, hands on dad I could ask for.  We definitely had our ups and downs, and our marriage was put to the test.  It was not easy, and there were times I just wanted to shut down, and throw in the towel.  Luckily I married the most amazing, patient, loyal, kind man that helped me through this journey.  We helped each other.  I can now say that our marriage is so much stronger, and we overcome every obstacle that was thrown at us.  I know we will face other challenges , but I now know that we can make it through anything.  If I didn't know how wonderful of a man Luke was before, I know now.  We have made this perfect little human that has brought more joy to our lives than we could ever know.  Our time is so precious now, and we enjoy each other more than ever.  Before Hudson we enjoyed going on trips or a night out on the town with friends.  Now we enjoy sitting on the porch, drinking a glass of wine, and talking.  Having a baby really makes you enjoy the simple things in life.  As I write this post I realize I am talking more about our baby than our marriage, but our baby is our life now.  Our world has forever changed, and will be about our children for as long as we live.  I am so excited for the next year of marriage, and many more to come.


Luke,

I pretty much said it all above, but I didn't say THANK YOU!  Thank you for being my best friend, always having my back, keeping me sane, never judging, and being a constant sounding board when I needed it.  You are the most wonderful daddy, and Hudson is one lucky little boy.  We are both lucky.  I know this last year was not easy, and I want to thank you for staying strong, and being so wonderful to me during the transition from a family of two to a family of three.  I love you more and more everyday, and cannot wait to see what the future has in store for us.

Love,
Amber
