Happy Anniversary to Us!
Today we celebrate three years of marriage! Here's the best three years of our lives in a few photos... If you're not into photos, check out the gorgeous wedding video my hubby had made for us today: http://vimeo.com/90623310
My first instagram included my favorite things: Cody, Ocean, Mason Jar (that's water, not moonshine), Kindle
Before I donated my locks... What happened to those jeans?
One of many of our favorite kids from the community, who said, "You and Justin Bieber are my husband!" to Cody. This is stiff competition ladies.
Godchicks 2012, when the Abers met & fell in love with Lisa Bevere, who continued to tell me for the next 2 years, "TIME TO HAVE HIS BABY!" Thank you Holly for introducing us to your friends!
Cousin's BBQ is a very serious part of our marriage.
Me with a mullet. (You're welcome!) Thank God we were already married when Cody saw this. How cute is my brother?
Introducing Cody to the "Lake Rats" Burl and Dod... My childhood of lakes, boats, skiing, jet skis, Southeastern BBQ, the amazing Burlesons and Cheerwine. (Look it up & let it change your life!)
The Annual Margarita Party at Mom & Dennis'... We couldn't ask for better parents - on BOTH sides!
Compton Initiative! Also a regular part of our marriage...
Connect Groups... MUST in our marriage! I did marry the Connect Groups Pastor after all.
Katherine and Cody making me laugh hysterically, per usual, when they are together!

Well, what can I say about this?
Cannot wait to take our family to Africa!
Our immediate families above are the BEST.
Friends who have graciously & consistently contributed to our lives...
Beautiful baby Aber...
What an exciting road ahead... Marry well friends. Choose forgiveness in the hard times. Serve, regardless of how you're feeling. Let the words on your tongue be filled with honor. Give grace when your spouse deserves it the least. Choose amazing friends - they live in your marriage, whether you know it or not. Love hard, fiercely, ferociously, vulnerably, honestly, because that takes great courage. Wait well beauties...
Marriage is not for the faint of heart.
