To Recap the year:
I had a stress fracture in my foot the first several months of marriage and was on crutches
Will successfully defended his dissertation in November and graduated with his PhD in Civil Engineering in December.
We flew to AZ to visit my family for Christmas and it was the first time Will had ever flown in his life and the first time that either of us got to visit the grand canyon.
We moved into our first (rental) house in march.
8 things were replaced on my car
6 weddings were attended
4 sets of twins at our church have been born (I know, random, but still worth remembering)
3 major appliances were purchased and then completely broken within a month of being purchased...I think we will stay away from craigslist for awhile
2 demolition derbys
I ended my internship at crosspoint, and started working for first sun management as an IT assistant
We are still waiting on a job to open up for Will somewhere (that isn't in Afghanistan) but are still trusting in God's provision
The year has flown by but I'm daily reminded how blessed I am by the way that God has graciously provided for us. My husband's unwavering steadfast love for me has been such a beautiful reminder to me of Christ's love for the church and for both I am thankful.
To celebrate the day, we slept in (yay!), went to Panera for lunch, and then Will gave me my gift which was an hour long massage at a spa. We then went to Frankie's fun park and went mini-golfing. The heat was a little overwhelming so afterward we went to a bookstore to cool down and then headed to downtown Greenville where we had Thai food and Coffee Underground. We then headed home and enjoyed our anniversary cake while watching the video of our wedding day!
