It was so lovely to see your face this weekend, even for the short amount of time we did have with you. We missed you lots. I know it was far too short and wasn’t picture perfect but it was good, it was full of real life and even better – our life.
Funny how things work out, isn’t it? We started out this way, hundreds of miles away from one another wanting to be together but just not quite being able to make that happen…just yet. Here we are nearly 10 years later, almost a decade of time between us, a set of wedding bands, a house and two precious little babes. Gosh, life looks different these days then it did back then. You chasing this career of yours and doing big things for our family and I’m here raising up our babies and juggling diapers, naps, food and teaching them as they grow. We are both living and breathing the dreams that we once dreamed up together. We are getting to do this life together and for that I am so incredibly grateful.
Gosh, my love, I’m not sure if you know how proud of you I am. I’m so proud of who you are and the career you are forming. You are so full of hard work and determination. I know you’re rolling your eyes about now but you don’t ever give yourself enough credit. I know a part of you feels like finding this career took far too long, but I know a piece of you never once thought you would have this career. You are meant for big things, darling. You know this already but I’m always rooting for you and cheering you on and that’ll never change.
I know you have said you feel bad that you have to leave us and that I’m home with our littles while you are away but I mean it with my whole heart that I’m living my dream too. Since as long as I can remember I dreamed up these days of raising up babies with a good man and here I am living it. I’m living the good life by your side and I’m so glad I’m your girl. Even in the times where we have been knee deep in the muck of life, there is no one else I’d rather be conquering demons with. You and I make a great team, you know. I’m regularly reminded of how we fit together so wonderfully like we do, we balance one another in the best kind of ways even when they feel like they are the worst. I know this season of life is chaotic and frankly not something we ever dreamed. We thought our days of being hundreds of miles away from one another were long gone and here we are in this season where we are now thousands of miles away for weeks on end. Maybe that’s why God started this journey of life together the way that he did so we knew we would be able to withstand the seasons of your traveling without being shaken.
In the great scheme of things this will all just be a tiny blip in time we look back on this life we get to have together. It’s just a tiny stepping stone in your career and in turn, our life. Soon was we’ll be in for even a bigger change as we pack up and head out on our next adventure with our family. God only knows where this life leads, my love, but I do know I’m so glad I get to do it all with you.
I’d travel to the ends of the world for you.
I love you with my whole heart. See you soon, Darling.
Forever and ever, babe.
XO ❤️Your bride for life
