Happy 4th Anniversary!

This year has been a true test, but I know more than ever God has the perfect man by my side. 

 Eric had surgery just days after my busiest work month of the year. We also closed on our first house and moved in while he was on post surgery bed rest and a toddler with a 103 fever.


We celebrated my sister's wedding the day after we found out I was pregnant with baby Albert.
But we lost our sweet baby, and clung to each other for dear life.

 We traveled to NYC as this year's destination of choice for our annual vacation.  It was nice to spend a few nights/days just the two of us (and Rosemary!).
We welcomed Eric's first nephew into the world, and said good-bye to both of his Uncle Jims.
And we're more than thrilled to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary with another baby on the way.


It's been a roller coaster year, and I couldn't imagine anyone but this guy standing by my side through it all.  Thank you for loving me through it all, Eric.  I can't wait for many more years with you!


For our actual anniversary we made plans to go to JCT Kitchen, a local gourmet southern restaurant after celebrating a friend's engagement down the block.  By the time we sat down for dinner I had a full blown migraine. When our dinner arrived I was so sick from the migraine to even eat, so we had our server box up our dinner to go.  I was home and in bed by 8:30 with Eric bringing me cool rags and water.  Not exactly how we intended our date night to end.

I woke up to 4 beautiful flower arrangements around the down stairs. When or how exactly they arrived, I have no idea.  I realized later this afternoon than flowers are the traditional gift for the fourth anniversary.  Four arrangements was the PERFECT gift!

Year One - Paper - Dinner Groupon
Year Two -  China / Cotton - I honestly cannot remember
Year Three - Crystal - a Waterford vase from our Ireland trip

We're looking forward to taco night at home with our sweet girl for our first family dinner in about a week.  Life doesn't get much better :)
