October is for lovers!!






Today two years ago I said I do to a man that I thought I loved more than anything, one year ago I said I can't believe I love you more today than I did a year ago. Today marks two years of wedded bliss for Mr. A and I and as hard as it is to believe I love my wonderful husband more today than I did 2 years ago and even more than I did on our first anniversary.






It's hard for me to believe that it's been two years since the frantic days of wedding plannning have passed and we've settled nicely into our little married couple's routine. I can't begin to describe the safe haven that my wonderful husband's arms have created for me in the torrent that has been my life over the last year. Year 2 has had it's ups and downs that's for sure. Everyone always tells me that God never gives us anything we can't handle I'm not sure I 100% believe that but I do believe that God never gives any one person anything they must face alone. I fully believe in my heart that the good Lord knew I'd need a strong man in my life to help me face the storms of life. In the last few months when I felt like I've been in this strange haze Mr. A is the only one who has been able to put a smile on my face and make me forget the world for a while. We've been abundantly blessed in our life together and sometimes I know I'm guilty of forgetting that but when I look back over the last year together and what we've faced and triumphed I feel so incredibly blessed.


When Mr. A and I did our unity candle we did things a little differently and I love the sentiment it showed. Each of our guests received a candle when they entered the church and when it came time to light our unity candle it started with our ushers in the very back of the church and it was passed to every person leading up through our bridal party ending with our maid of honor and best man who took the candle to our moms who lit our individual candles and then we lit our candle together. It was to symbolize the part that each person played in bringing us to that moment. We chose the song "When God Made You" by Newsong to be played during that time and the words to that song ring so true for me. God had to have been thinking of me when He created someone who fit so perfectly everything I'd always dreamed of and more.

"When God Made You"
It’s always been a mystery to me
How two hearts can come together
And love can last forever
But now that I have found you, I believe
That a miracle has come
When God sends the perfect one
Now gone are all my questions about why
And I’ve never been so sure of anything in my life

Chorus:
I wonder what God was thinking
When He created you
I wonder if He knew everything I would need
Because He made all my dreams come true
When God made you
He must have been thinking about me

I promise that wherever you may go
Wherever life may lead you
With all my heart I’ll be there too
From this moment on I want you to know
I’ll let nothing come between us
And I will love the ones you love
Now gone are all my questions about why
And I have never been so sure of anything in my life

Chorus:
I wonder what God was thinking
When He created you
I wonder if He knew everything I would need
Because He made all my dreams come true
When God made you
He must have been thinking about me

Bridge:
He made the sun
He made the moon
To harmonize in perfect tune
One can’t move without the other
They just have to be together
And that is why I know it’s true
You’re for me and I’m for you
Cause my world just can’t be right
Without you in my life

Chorus:
I wonder what God was thinking
When He created you
I wonder if He knew everything I would need
Because He made all my dreams come true

Tag chorus:
He must have heard every prayer I’ve been praying (I 've been praying)
Yes He knew everything I would need
When God made you (I thank God he made you)
When dreams come true (you are my love my love)
When God made you He must have been thinking about me


Happy Anniversary Mr. A I love you to the moon and back!!

Mrs. A
