Happy 1 Year Anniversary, Preacher Man! :)

I can't believe  that it's been a whole year!  A whole year since we said our I Do's to one another!  It's been a most wonderful year!  I'm so thankful that God blessed me with Preacher Man as a husband.  There could not be a more perfect match for me in the world.  He is my heart and I love him so very much!

It's so fun to look back on the happiest day of my life...

Seeing Preacher Man that day was the thing that I was most excited about....I couldn't stand being at the church while he was there and not be able to see him.

This was an awesome, awesome moment and I will never forget it...

It was one of the best things that we did during the whole planning process.  This time together helped us calm our nerves and just made things so much easier on the both of us.  It was soooo worth it!  :)

 And taking pictures before was great, we were done in no time!

The complete wedding party.  We are so blessed and happy to have such wonderful family and friends that stood by us on our special day.  Each and every person that stood by us means so much to us and we are so thankful for our relationships that we have with each and every one of you.

And these girls...I don't know where I would be without them!  Such an amazing group of girls!

And Preacher Man's fellas.  They are awesome too!  :)

This is one of my favorite pictures...

And there is no way I could have become who I am without my family or even made it through life without you all...I love you all so much!

And I'm so blessed to have married into a family that I love more and more every time I am around them.  They are just fabulous!  :)

Our wedding day was one of the happiest days of my life.
It was a beautiful day that Preacher Man and I committed our lives to one another.
Marriage is one of the most wonderful things that God created and I'm so blessed that I have a wonderful husband who leads me, prays with me, encourages me, and is everything that I ever wanted and more.

Happy Anniversary, Jon!

I love you and can't wait for all of the things that we have in store for us!

Your Wife :)

Family Portraits on the BEACH

We took family portraits on vacation....which was almost two months ago...and I'm just now posting...oooppss.  Life has been busy.  Hope you enjoy! 

So here's the story...

We all piled up in the van dressed alike to go stand on the beach and smile.  Luckily we all really like each other!  Haha!  :)  We really do.  :)

Here is me, Preacher Man, and Ethan on the way...

funny face!

The beginning to all of the pictures...

Precious little girl!

Love the in-laws...they are fabulous!  :)

So then we went to eat some seafood!

It was yummy!!!

Here is Preacher Man with his little crustacean-y thing.  Ew. 

Grosss!!!!!  I hate crustacean-y things.

It's staring at me!!!!!!!!!

And then it was time to play putt-putt!!  Fun, fun!

We're a mess.  :)


She doesn't seem to recognize her aunt and uncle...

or her grandparents....hahahahahaha!!!  :)

If you haven't noticed, the putt-putt place was pirate themed.  It even had a little show!

Me and Preacher Man

Go Nana!!!

Preacher Man and his Momma!  :)

and him and his daddy.  :)  I wish I could remember what he just said in this was funny...I remember laughing.

David is showing us how to some golfer person.  I don't remember their name either.

Here we are again....this was an awesome round of putt-putt for me!  I got 2 hole-in-ones!  I've never ever done that!  I was so pumped!

And we ended the night with Nana's birthday peach cobbler that I made her!  It sure was shiny.  :)

It sure was a fun vacation and I sure am ready for another!!

Lots of Love,
The Preacher's Wife
