It has been 6 years ago today I was married to the most wonderful man in the world. I can't believe how time flies. That was the most wonderful day of my life (with a close second with the birth of our daughter). I know I am biased but it was the most beautiful wedding a girl could ask for.
This summer in August also marks 12 years of being together (dating plus marriage). We went on our first date to the St. Paul Saints game and then to Denny's in 1999 right before our senior year started. And most of you may be shocked by the next statement: I asked him out on the first date! That day started the rest of our lives. High School Sweethearts...
Ben has been such a wonderful blessing in my life. With my type A personality, I needed someone to be my stronghold and to keep me calm and relaxed and he truly does. Ben has changed my life in so many wonderful ways. One thing I have always loved about Ben is how he protects and puts his family first. He is a man of character and love. He stands up for what he believes and doesn't back down. He loves the Lord with all his heart and shows it in his daily actions.
Ben is a WONDERFUL father...I knew one day he would be such a great dad because he was raised by wonderful parents and had a great example of what a dad should be like. I love each day as he watches his little girl grow and how each moment he loves spending with her. He is getting so excited for the day she can watch a Disney movie with him!
Ben means more to me than anything in this world. He is my love, my protector, my calm before a storm, my best friend, my husband, my child's dad, smart, VERY GOOD LOOKING, soft heart, gentle spirit, great decision maker and FOREVER mine.
On this day Ben, I thank the Lord that he has blessed me with a faithful, amazing, God fearing husband. You are a treasure. I thank God, each time I think of you. Philippians 1:3
