4 Years 1 Week and 2 Days Ago...

I made the best decision of my life:


March 17th 2006
Jared, in true Stokes form was early to the temple.
I, in true Lindsey form, was late.
He thought I wasn't going to show.
I did.
People always say, "It only seems like yesterday..." To me it seems like a lifetime has past since that day.
Together we have faced trials and triumphs, heartache and joy. We have grown closer and become better because of each.
So to some, 4 years 1 week and 2 days is just a tiny speck of time.
To me, 4 years 1 week and 2 days is EVERYTHING!!!
4 years 1 week and 2 days ago is when life really began for me, and it has been an amazing adventure I chose.

LOVE IT!! How cool! Congrats to the two of you! Hey btw, when did you get to find out if Baby Stokes is going to be a boy or girl??

I love reading your posts, well written. Congratulations on your anniversary, or should I say the beginning to your life. I know what you mean about the "it only seems like yesterday," it never felt like that for me either.
Happy day to you.

YOu know when you *almost* rear-end the car in front of you and you are like "WOAH! I can't believe we made it."? Sometimes, that is how I feel about being married.

Good bad or ugly it takes work to stay married for 4 years and you deserve a pat on the back!

I'm so glad you chose it! That is the key to being happy in marriage, I think!

That is so funny that he thought you wouldn't show. :) You guys seem so happy. I am excited for Easter, too, and also excited for you to see what you'll be having this time around!
