Two Years Married | Happy Saturday

 Sometimes life doesn’t fit into words. Saturdays don’t. This one doesn’t. 

The contentedness of a mighty large batch of waffles fresh in the kitchen, the warm Carolina sun on my arms, the stretching blue sky overhead - Nope. The words aren’t good enough; happy enough; full enough for the love God has given me for this life.

I never felt like a Northern girl. There’s nothing wrong with icy winters and German people; oh, no. But something inside me always knew that a part of my life would be in the South. I was expecting it, but I wasn’t. When I heard his calm, irresistible accent for the first time, I had no idea that the only reason he was making conversation with the whole group was to get two words in with me. 

“How in the world do you love me?” I’ve asked so many times, squashed into his shoulder from a hug. He always reminds me that he knew the first time he saw me. Would have married me right then. 

And I still can’t figure out why. 

Two years from the day he made me his, we’re still in love. We ride in the work truck with the windows down, talking about skidders, log quotas, whether or not it will rain before Monday, mixed in with a little bit of “what Haven did today”, and an “I love you…” every once in a while. 

We’re still newly weds. He says we always will be; and that’s why were are. 

Thanks Hun. I love you more than a microwave.
