May 17th

Six years ago today, I became a "Mrs."

The day was perfect and everything I had hoped and dreamed it would be.

Six years later, I love Devin more than I did when I first married him, if that's possible. (I also said that last year on our 5 year). He's the whole deal. A good man. A great husband. An excellent Daddy. He loves me more than I deserve sometimes and better than anyone I ever dreamed could.

Six years has taken us many miles. Sometimes its been a fun ride, sometimes a crazy one, and even sometimes just plain awful. We've certainly been through things I wish we hadn't, but God is good, and He continues to bring us through it. He continues to bless our family and our marriage.

DW, if you read this (which he will in about a week or so because he usually checks this thing when someone says, "Oh, I saw that or read that on Annie's blog..." He cringes, I know. Then he checks to see just what I'm saying on here...), Happy Anniversary! Hard to believe it's been 6 years... To borrow the words from Brad Paisley, "I thought I loved you then."

Congrats Annie! Anniversaries are the best. I completely understand loving someone more each day. I never thought it could happen, but it does! Keep the love strong! :)

Y'all have the sweetest love for each other! I am constantly amazed by just how BIG it is. I know without a doubt that DW was the man God made for you, even though six years ago I was a little ill that he was stealing my best friend!! (I love you Devin:)

I don't doubt for one second that God has so many great things planned for the two of you! The Brad Paisley song describes it perfectly, as does 1 Corinthians 13
Congratulations on the first six years!
